In Millie's 100 years she was an avid gardener, and a lifelong member of First Baptist Church in Camanche where she served as a Sunday School teacher for 40+ years. She was a diehard Cubs fan, and was happy to see them win the World Series last year. Her greatest joy in life was her Lord and Savior and her family. She was proud of her spelling and won a spelling bee.
