Millie and Donald lived in New Jersey and Maryland while Don was in the service before moving to Cedar Rapids in 1958 where they raised their family. They celebrated 63 years of marriage this past May.
Millie worked many years in retail, starting at Kosek's Dime Store, then Killian's and finally Von Maur, where she retired after 23 years. She loved cooking, holiday baking and running a tight ship at home. She enjoyed many years of golf league in the Cedar Rapids area. Millie loved the Hawkeyes and especially the Cubs. She and Don were thankful for 15 winters spent in Gulf Shores, Ala., after both were retired. She was a member of St. Paul's United Methodist Church in Cedar Rapids.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be given to the American Heart Association.
