    Millie was one of my favorite aunts. But we didn’t see her very much after she moved out to Washington. She was a quiet person but loved to visit. We will certainly miss her. May she rest in the eternal peace.

    Millie was such a great person. I lived at her house after college when I worked at my first job in Minneapolis. We enjoyed many good conversations and made me feel so at home. I also remember as a kid my parents and I would come to Brooklyn Center to visit and it was so much fun. She always kept her house so tidy and neat. I will miss receiving a Christmas card and note from her. She was one of my favorite aunts. Thoughts and prayers to all of you!!
