Mildred (Millie) Miley
Millie passed away peacefully on December 29, 2020 at age 93 in Orangevale, CA after suffering a stroke.
She was preceded in death by her loving husband of 56 years, Ralph (Bud) Miley in 2005, her brother Lloyd Foley, and parents David and Irene Foley.
She is survived by her daughter Pamela Benedict and son-in-law Ken Benedict; granddaughter Brandy Sullivan and her husband Mike Sullivan; granddaughter Stephanie Schrantz and her husband Chris Schrantz; and great-grandchildren Philip and Rebecca Schrantz.
Millie was an accounting clerk in Ventura, CA prior to retirement. Millie and Bud enjoyed traveling around the country in their motorhome full-time in retirement and made friends wherever they went. After Bud’s passing, Millie moved to Orangevale to live with her daughter and son-in-law.
Known as Grandma Millie to the second graders of Pershing Elementary School for many years, she loved helping the children and teachers and volunteered there until she was 90. Bingo was a favorite pastime.
When asked the secret to a long life, she advised everyone to eat a lot of sugar and laugh a lot. It isn't surprising that she was always so sweet. She will be greatly missed by all who knew her.
