Sending prayers & healing words of comfort to Millie's family. I will miss her. She had a great sense of humor. I always enjoyed visiting with her whenever I passed through Scotland. She told me lots of family history stories.

My mother Adeline Merkwan was a good friend of Millie at the Springfield Assisted Living. Mom moved to SAL in Jan. 2020 and Millie helped her with many things and they were also lunch partners. Mom would have loved to been at the funeral but Covid would not allow it. She would like to write to Millie's two children to express her sympathy and also talk of the friendship she had with Millie. If there's any way I could make this happen for my mom, I would greatly appreciate it. I've included my email: jdl@siouxvalley.net
