OBITUARY

Mildred Ann Flocco

April 22, 1927March 8, 2020

Millie Flocco, 92, of Raleigh, NC and formerly of Charlotte, NC was completely healed and went home to the Lord on Sunday March 8, 2020.

She was preceded in death by her loving husband of forty-six years, Floyd. She is survived by her children, Charles Flocco (Marian) of Richmond, VA and Beth Flocco Clark (Steve) of Raleigh, NC along with four grandchildren, Sarah Grace Clark Jones, Allison Clark, Katie Flocco and Scott Flocco all of Raleigh, NC.

Born April 22, 1927 in Brocton, NY she was the youngest of five children born to Charlie and Grace Nicosia. She graduated from Brocton Central High School in 1945 and Bryant and Stratton Business College in 1952. She and Floyd married in 1958 and lived in Buffalo, NY until they moved to Charlotte, NC in 1978. Millie retired from Fiber Seal of Charlotte in 2014 after 24 years of service.

Millie had a keen sense of humor and a sassy way about her. She never knew a stranger and was always willing to help others, while never asking for help herself. If you knew Millie and ever helped her in any way then you knew how good her banana bread was as you were sure to receive a loaf as a thank you. Although she faced a series of trying illnesses these past few years, Millie continued her love and loyalty to her family and was especially proud of her four grandchildren.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at a later date at St. Vincent DePaul Catholic Church, 6828 Old Reid Rd, Charlotte, NC 28210. A private interment of her ashes will take place later at Portland Evergreen Cemetery, Portland, NY.

In lieu of flowers, Millie has requested that donations be made to Loaves and Fishes, 648 Griffith Rd, Suite B, Charlotte, NC 28217.

Arrangements by Brown-Wynne, 300 Saint Mary's Street, Raleigh.

Services

  • Mass of Christian Burial to be held at a later date.

Millie was part of our family. We worked at an elementary school as partners 45 Yrs ago & been friends since, even living in different states. She visited us a week every summer; those were such memorable times. When my only brother died, Millie opened her heart & home to me & my family; we’ll never forget her kind hospitality. Phone calls & prayers kept us close throughout the years. Although we all miss her so much, we are thankful that she is now in the presence of Jesus & her precious husband, Floyd. Millie raised two wonderful children & they gifted her with four precious grandchildren of whom she never stopped thanking God for each. My message to Millie, if I could send one, would be: BE HAPPY SWEET FRIEND & ENJOY THE GLORY OF HEAVEN & PERFECT PEACE & JOY UNTIL WE MEET AGAIN. ALWAYS IN OUR HEARTS!

Millie had so much life in her. She always was there with a warm smile and a fantastic meal. Growing up behind them, I couldn’t wait for Sunday’s when I would be invited to their awesome dinners. Beth and I would listed to funny Italian music and we would all sing.
Millie you are loved and missed and I am so happy you are joining Floyd in Heaven.

Our thanks to all who have offered memories of our mom, Millie. She was sassy, a bit devilish at times and had a terrific sense of humor. She and Floyd are together again and for that we are grateful.

Millie was a friend of my mother, Melba Golightly, at Magnolia Glen during their final years. I ate with them in their dining room more than a few times and enjoyed Millie so much. She had a great sense of humor and enjoyed talking about her family. My sister and I went back and ate with that lovely group of ladies a few times after our mom passed away in December 2018. Our sincere condolences to her family. I know she will be missed.

My wife, PAT & I were long time friends of Millie & Floyd from Buffalo, NY days basically, as Floyd and I were employed by National Gypsum.

A favorite memory was at a night out celebrating a golf victory in the NG golf league when the then famous “O.J.Simpson”—-Buffalo Bills; football star appeared on the scene. Millie arose from our table and went and shook hands with “O.J”. Returning to our table with her right hand raised in the air, Millie stated very clearly —-“I am never going to wash this hand.”

Thereafter, I frequently reminded Millie of her proclamation by asking if she ever washed her hand. The last few times Millie had some uncomplimentary remarks about the fallen football star.

It was always a special moment for Millie and me.

May Millie’s soul Rest In Peace as she now has joined Floyd.

Jim Fosbrink. (ForPat too, who departed this world 6/7/19)

Floyd and Millie were neighbors of ours in Charlotte and I was
constantly bothering both of them about some project around my house. Floyd was quite the handiman and had every tool under the sun. I used to bowl with Floyd and brought my kids to their house for events like Halloween. Floyd and I both worked at National Gypsum so we saw each other at both work and at home. There has never been a more affable couple and Millie was always the steadfast one. I will miss both of them, but am glad they have reunited.
