Millie was a dear next door neighbor of ours in Hamilton, MI when I was a young girl. In the intervening years since Millie and her family left Hamilton, my mother, Viola Lohman, continued to hold Millie in high esteem and talked about her often. She was was a wonderfully kind woman. In my family cookbook I have Millie's recipe for pecan pie that is one of my husband's favorites. When I make it, I always tell my husband about Millie. So in her pie, her memory continues. My sympathies and prayers are with Millie's family today. The Lord shared an angel with us on this earth. We were blessed.

I went to Hamilton High School when Mrs. Golding worked in the office.
She was a kind sweetheart with a very friendly smile that I will never forget

Randy & Mike- When I think of people who have had a huge impact on my life your mom would be right up there at the top. Your mom was like a second mom to me throughout my high school years. She was ALWAYS looking out for me but would put me in my place when I needed it. My heart is sad knowing she is gone from this life but there is no doubt that Heaven is rejoicing at receiving such a special angel. ❤️ Marcia
