Condolences to friends and family. I was baby when Millie first entered my life. She was my late Aunt Margaret's best friend and was at just about every family function as I was growing up. And we did NOT address her Miss Moneco (or Aunt Millie), just Millie! I still have photos of her with me going back more than 50 years. She was a great lady. :)

Saddened to read of the Passing of a dear friend, colleague and Boss (1968) at the CLC. And what a wonderful friend, colleague and Boss she was. I remember with fondness the lunches Millie hosted for those under her wing.

While saddened, I am happy that Millie had such a long, engaged and very-well-lived life.

My husband (who got to know and appreciate Millie's many kindnesses) and I extend our sincerest condolences to the family and present-day friends of Millie's.
