    I am so sorry to read that Millie passed away she was such a sweet lady I worked with her many times in the church kitchen during funerals and in quilting and many other functions at the church. She will be missed by all who knew her. May you find comfort in our Lord, Jesus Christ.

    My 4 year work study job at MSU was with Millie at the Speech and Hearing Clinic. She was so kind and caring. So sad to learn of her passing. My prayers are with the family.

    I loved Millie and Cliff’s visits to the farm and remember with fondness sharing a wonderful Thanksgiving meal there. And, oh, I’ll never forget the batches of cookies you sent home with Ronnie. He shared them with all of us. Good job, Mom and Dad. Rest In Peace, Millie.

    All of us here in the speech-language-hearing sciences department at MSUM have such fond memories of Millie. I remember her so clearly, sitting behind her desk in Grier Hall. She was always so friendly and caring and personable. She was the kind of person who could make each student or faculty member feel like they were her favorite.
    Peace to her family in this time of loss.

    Please accept my deepest sympathy. Millie was such a dear person who impacted my life. If I remember correctly, she directed the Junior Choir at church. I wanted to be in it so badly, but when I came to rehearsal, I was sad to find that I was too young. While sitting in the pew listening to my friends sing, I started to cry. And Millie allowed me to join. She had such a sweet heart. I went on to have a Master of Vocal Music degree, and
    used music extensively in my special education teaching. Thank you Millie from the bottom of my heart.
