Millie’s life was a journey with many chapters; she was a colorful, loving mother, friend and grandmother. She cared deeply for her family and friends.
Millie had a lifelong love of crafts and got so much pleasure from sharing her handmade gifts with everyone. She had a very generous nature. Millie was very quick-witted and never lost her keen sense of humor.
In her early years she raised a family while also hosting a local Chattanooga television show, “Focus”, and several radio shows as well as voiceover commercial work. She was a natural talent that was right at home in front of the microphone or the camera.
Millie was a truly unique woman who was an inspiration to her family, friends and final caregivers in her life and in her relentless battle against a cruel disease.
Our family is grateful for the prayers, the love, the support and the help that we received throughout her treatment and her many recoveries. We send our thanks to the doctors, nurses, technicians and all other caregivers who took care of her over this past year. You’ve been a source of great comfort to us all.
