Millie graduated from Hillyer College in Hartford, CT, raised her daughters, then returned to her career as Executive Assistant to the Dean of Student Affairs at Central Connecticut State University. Upon her retirement, Millie and Patrick spent their winters in Marco Island, FL, making life long friendships and enjoying their beach walks. Millie and Pat were among the original “Mall Walkers” at Westfarms and could also be seen daily walking throughout the town of Plainville.
Millie was an avid fan of the Boston Red Sox and the University of Connecticut Men’s and Women’s Basketball teams enjoying endless hours watching their successes. She could be seen in her team sweatshirts on the days they were playing.

In addition to her husband Patrick and her parents, Millie was predeceased by her beautiful daughter Lynell.
The family will hold a private burial at a later time, and wish to thank all friends and loved ones for their love and support over the past few years, as well as Masonic Hospice for their loving care since December of this past year.
