Millie is such a wonderful person. I will miss seeing her at church.

I extend my deepest sympathy to every family member. Millie was a not only a wonderful friend, but a true servant of God. I first met her while I was associate pastor at St. Mary's in Crown Point. On too many occasions to tell, Millie was a great help. When I would be hosting a youth program she was sure to prepare a snack tray for the kids; when any of my vestments needed tending or mending I need only ask; again and again and again Millie made my life and the lives of the other priests easier by simple, humble acts of service. She continued her friendship and help even after I left Crown Point and moved on to parishes in Portage, Valparaiso, and, eventually beyond. Millie has truly earned a saints reward. I am so sorry not to be able to be with you during these days. Be assured of my prayers; and I hope that even through your moments of hurt and grief at her passing into the Lord's hands, you will be able to richly celebrate her life. May God's peace be with you.

My deepest sympathy & prayers go out to each and every one of you. I may or may have not met you but I shared many long talks in person and on the phone and a close christian relationship with Millie, your mom. I first met her when I was the Pastoral Coordinator at St. Anthony HomeFranciscan Communities through Fr. Myron. Millie and I worked together. She had a beautiful open, generous heart for all residents living in long-term care. She cared even more than their own families at times. She gave of herself & her time no matter how critical her own health was Millie always found time to bring Jesus in Holy communion, prayer, and listened to the residents stories. Millie also listened to my stories of joys & sadness. I went through several hospital stays with her; test, E.R., out patient surgeries. I can hear her voice, her laughter,we shared many jokes her brisk walk. & the beautiful clothes she wore. She loved beautiful blouses and got upset when she had difficulty finding new ones to buy. One of her favorite foods was the Strongbolee sandwich from Broncos. She always celebrated life to the fullest and new God was always with her even when her Buick gave her a lot of problems. She would come into Mass at the home and sit with me on the organ bench and we would pray together during Mass and also out of Mass. Millie took special thought in selecting and giving me cards or a special little gift. Millie loved her tea, not to hot not to cold, just right. Her gift to me will always be her sharing a portion of her life with me and spreading God's love, joy, & compassion in the world. God's peace and love to all and may God welcome our Millie into His loving embrace! Sincerely in prayer, Margie Pixey
