Mildred “Millie” Gibbons passed peacefully in her sleep in the early hours of Saturday, July 20, 2019, just 4 months shy of her 92nd birthday.
She was a loving wife, mother, sister, grandmother and great grandmother She is survived by her sons George and Bill, her sister Aggie, her daughter-in-law Patti, grandchildren Mike and Haley, and great-grandchildren Alyssa and Mike Jr.
To many, Millie will be remembered for her style, her candidness, and her wonderful humor. Her family will remember all of that about her but mostly will miss her love and devotion and her commitment to supporting us in everything we did, even if she didn’t agree with our choices. Of course, in true Millie fashion, she let us know exactly how she felt, but, no matter what, she was behind us every step of the way.
One of the most descriptive comments made about Millie was in a post by a friend of the family which said, “Everyone wanted a Millie.” She was the matriarch of a wonderful family, working as a Caterer’s Assistant and then a Pharmacy Assistant for many years, until “retiring” to give all of her attention to her grandchildren. In a world where both parents needed to work, she was everyone’s grandmother. Ask any of the neighborhood children (all adults now) about “Camp Millie”, where they could go after school, have a snack, and, as long as they finished their homework, go out to play under Millie’s watchful eye.
Before she left us, she said she knew she was going to be with her husband George in heaven, and we have no doubt that is where she is. She was deeply loved and will be deeply missed, and we are all thankful to have had the opportunity to have her in our lives.
