Anyone who is blessed to know Millie, was aware of her generous spirit, her tender-hearted ways and her spunky zest for life; the unique bond shared between Gary and Millie and his dedication to his mothers life will always serve as an inspiration for me in my life. I give thanks and deepest condolences to the family.
God Bless,

I loved Millie, she was a neat lady! So sorry for your loss.

Dear family, our sincere sympathy to all of you. Millie was foster sister to my brother, Daniel James Price. The Belich family was always close to my brother. Millie was always friendly and caring. She was a fun and pleasant person to know and talk with. Yes, she was an excellent cook, especially the cabbage rolls. We are sincerely sorry because of health issues within our own family that we won't be able to attend the services but our thoughts are with you. God bless all of you. Patrick and Sharon Alexander
