Milly has always held a special spot in my life and heart. I first met Milly in 1969 but my fondest memories began in 1974, when I transferred to Deep Creek Middle School, BCPS. Milly was our PE department head and she became an important role model as a teacher, coach and mentor. She was kind, fair, able and professional. Milly was a very special person to Physical Education.
It is my sincerest privilege to call Milly my friend. Rest in Peace Milly.

Milly spent most her life helping others via the school system as well as many avenues promoting health, education and athletics.
Her easy-going soft spoken demeanor was a joy to her friends, neighbors and people who had the pleasure of her company.
She spent much of her time in her paradise of Nanticoke and now in heaven's paradise.
She will be dearly missed by all.

Me. Wilson was my PE teacher at Deep Creek Jr Sr High school. She was a very good teacher. She expected you to work and play hard for a good grade. She will be missed. Rest in Peace.

Milly was always ready to help the children in BCPS. She quietly worked doing any job to assist the schools and central physical education office. She helped set up inspections, arrangements for transportation, and repair of large pieces of equipment. She worked to provide safe climbing equipment throughout the entire county for our elementary schools. She organized the countywide sharing technology program. She used her woodworking skills to build fitness testing equipment and aerobic step boxes for all the schools. There was never any job to small or big for Milly.

Milly was a friend. I could count on her to help me in BCPS for anything and I could count on her to tell me like it was. She was a unique, strong, woman. I was fortunate to get to know her and call her friend. She made a difference.

Milly was a fixture when I started in BCPS in 1986 and was still playing a major role when I retired 32 years later. In addition to being a fixture in athletics she lit up any room she was in. She always went out of her way to strike up a friendly conversation and was sure to ask how my daughter was doing.

Millie was quite simply an ICON and I went all caps on purpose . When you speak of dedication to the athletes, especially expanding and promoting the women sports no one comes close. You knew it was a “big” game when Millie showed up to watch . She left her mark in so many ways and it’s unfortunate the young athletes and coaches today won’t be able to absorb her knowledge and wisdom.
