In 1962 Millie went to work at City Hospital for the next 22 years as the beautiful and bubbly receptionist at the front desk until her retirement in 1983. After retirement she worked at the St. Elizabeth Adult Day Care Center. All of our lives are richer for having had her with us for as long as we have, but it still was too short. She would want us to smile whenever we think of her. She was a treasured gift to us all.
