Millie worked for many years as a bookkeeper for the former Lee Implements in Oneida, Illinois.  She would go on to work as for the United States Postal Service as a postal worker in Galesburg, Illinois, until her retirement.  There were many past times that she enjoyed, but she especially loved tending to her flower gardens.  Millie also took great pride in taking care of her home, husband, children, and grandchildren.  Collecting antiques of all kinds was also a favorite hobby of Millie’s.  She will be forever missed and lovingly remembered by all who knew her.
