Millie was such an inspiration and joy to be around. Her smile and light in her eyes just lit up the room and made you feel like a million bucks to be in her presents. I am truly going to miss my southern bell.

My condolences to the family. I met Millie when she volunteered at ADRC. Also visited her when she moved to West Salem Assisted Living and Mulder's. Such a neat lady with so much class. Truly one of a kind.

Millie lived a full life! I, and my nursing students, enjoyed the times she came to our class and talked to us about aging, living (really living with a sense of humor) with MS, her connection and commitment to letting others know about resources in the community and her passion about shopping as well as the tasty treats she brought us. She always dressed so fashionably and was so engaging. I personally enjoyed our cup of coffee in the cafeteria afterwards and listening to her many stories and just appreciating the energy of this petite, very southern woman. I'm sure she is regaling someone on the other side with her charm still:-)
