I worked with Millie at Liberty Mutual Insurance years ago. I don't remember how she met Owen but he was a good friend of my husband, George so we definitely had a common bond. Hadn't seen her for years after Owen died. I remember when she joined the Church. I thought of her every time I went past the home on Douglas when we would go to St. Joseph Church generally for a funeral. I am sorry I never stopped by to see her. She was a sweet lady. Our sympathies to her children and family.
God Bless

My mother-in-law was a quiet, soft spoken, simple woman. She loved her family & especially all the little ones! She loved to read & crochet. She was the one instrumental in teaching me the love of crocheting as well. All the kids, grand kids & great grand kids have many of her special creations. When I first joined the family, we would love to go to garage sales together. She would also bake alot. When you asked for her recipes, she gladly gave them, but don't count on them turning out the same...she usually didn't follow them, & I did. Her famous "jelly cookies" are a good example of that! Millie's last days were spent in hospice with many of us surrounding her with love & hopes that she just would get better. She actually did have two days where she came back to us and rallied briefly. So much to be said....she was special to me, and I will miss her tremendously! May you feel all our love for eternity and rest in peace. I love you! Shirley
