Millie was known for her generous hospitality, positive spirit, and her love for the Lord. Countless people experienced the warmth of her love, being in her home. No one who knew Millie can remember her expressing an unkind word or thought. Everything she did was motivated by her love for Jesus and others. She had a spiritual impact on many lives.
