May the many memories you shared through out her life stay with you through yours.
To the memory of my dear friend Millie. I first met Millie
when I was hired at Carlisle Hospital in 1978. She was a light that I knew I wanted to be close too. I recall the many times
we would share a simple hug and much laughter, and sometimes tears, happy and sad.
Over the years as Millie retired
from the hospital and went on to share her time and joy at the nursing home, she would joke that she was taking care of
old people even though she herself was older than her patients. Her age never mattered to us. S was one of us. We always
invited Millie to our retirement dinners and our lab Christmas parties. When you walked into the party you always wanted
to be around her because she made the party fun. I often said to her that I wanted to grow up and be like her,positive and
always a smile on her face. I truly admired Millie and I looked up to her as a friend. Now I will have to look higher because
I am sure she is Heaven. In closing I would to quote a poem by Ann Bronte
"...Though I can not see thee more 'Tis
still a comfort to have seen, And though thy transient life is O'er 'Tis sweet to think that thou hast been;
think a soul so near divine within a form so angel fair United to a heart like thine Has gladdened once our humble sphere."

I have worked with Milly at Sarah
Todd and Chapel Pointe. I also knew her from her work at the hospital. She was a beautiful person who would give the shirt
off her back if she could. Her laughter was infectious! She was very independent and imaginative. She would tell us some
of the things she would do around the house(climbing on the roof, stripping wire,adventures with friends and family). She
always would make us laugh with jokes and funny comments. She was amazing with the residents she worked with. Most staff
did not know her age(she NEVER acted her age!!!) I thank you for the opportunity to work with her and call her a friend!
When we meet in heaven I will bring the Symphony bar! Till then my friend!

I was working in the LAB when she was hired to come work
with us. She was always willing to do whatever we ask, always with a smile and pleasant. Her infectious smile, laugh and
sense of humor will always be remembered -- she was definitely a friend to everyone whoever knew her. There is another angel
in heaven to keep the smiles and laughter going.
