Mildred Garone

June 18, 1927April 14, 2018

Mildred (Millie) Garone (90) of Croton on Hudson, formerly of Brooklyn, NY, passed away on April 14, 2018 surrounded by the love of her family. Beloved wife of the late, Michael J. Garone. She was born on June 18, 1927 in Elizabeth, NJ to Lillian (Zehl) and Alex Olson. She is predeceased by her sisters, Lillian Peterson, Helen Apere, Evelyn Johnsen and brothers, Russell, John and William Olson. Lovingly remembered by nieces and nephews, especially her beloved nieces, Carole Bjornholm, Milly (Paul) Alaimo, Marilyn Adams and Dotty Johnson.

She leaves behind her loving son and his wife, Richard and Joan Garone of Croton on Hudson. She was extremely proud of and will be greatly missed by her loving grandchildren, Daniel and his wife Chrissy, Michael, William and Erin. Just this past Christmas, she was delighted to meet her cherished new great grandson, Cooper Daniel.

Family was everything to Millie, as she spent many years taking care of her ill husband. She delighted in trips to Asbury Park, NJ and taking her son to Palisades Amusement Park. She was warm and welcoming to all she met and was overjoyed to welcome each of her grandchildren as they were born. She made each one of them feel as though they were the light of her life.

She was afraid of dogs her entire life until she met the family’s Cairn terrier, Orion. The two become instant friends in 2011 and he provided her with great joy in her remaining years.

Aunt Millie all your memories are in my heart forever. I can never remember a time that you weren't smiling. The way you loved my uncle Mike was beautiful. On our last phone conversation you expressed how much you loved your family, especially the dog. You mailed me a photo of him and on the back you wrote, " my best friend Orion". I can imagine the reception you received when you met your Savior face to face, "Well done thy good and faithful servant". Your loving niece Marilyn

Aunt Millie was a one of a kind "Special Lady." I miss meeting her on Third Avenue. Our last meeting was in Foodtown, where we chatted for about 20 minutes. It was soon after, that I found she moved up to be close to Richie and his beautiful family. I miss her soft giggle and her sweetness. She was one of the kindest most memorable people that I have had the pleasure to be related to. She was my Dad's Last remaining sibling and that in itself is very sad. I am sorry Richard and his family no longer have her by their side but, the memories made through the years are sure to bring a smile to their face. May she Rest In Peace.
