Millie was a longtime, active member of St. Mary’s Catholic Church and both the American Legion and Fire Department Woman Auxiliaries, all in Holley, NY. Over the years Millie had always enjoyed making crafts and tending to her many flowers and plants. She took up golf at 75, was still on a bowling league at 88, and received her first pool stick at 90. She was a longtime fan of the Buffalo Bills and was invited to be a guest at their training camp for her 100th birthday. When the players would ask her the key to a long life her answer was always,“be happy”. Her love for her children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, family and friends was overflowing and unconditional.
Millie’s Funeral Mass will be held on Monday, February 18th, 10:00am at St. Mary’s Catholic Church, 4 Avon Road, Geneseo, NY 14454. Burial will be held in the Spring at Holy Cross Cemetery, Holley, NY.
