I want to share my deepest sympathy to Millie’s family. I worked with her at the Stacyville nursing home with my first job. She was such a bright and supportive and smiling coworker. Heaven gained an angel in Millie.

I worked with Millie, years ago during my high school years when I worked at the Stacyville Nursing Home. She was hard working and funny. A great mentor and human being! She was an angel on earth! She definitely left the world a better place. My condolences to her family during difficult time.

I will always remember the times I spent with Millie while working at the Adams group home. We would carpool together and spent many hours talking about work, family, and life in general. She was such a kind and generous person. I’ve often thought about her throughout the years and miss her. Prayers to all who loved her.
