I brought her holy communion when she lived at Little Village and also at McReynolds Hall. She was very devoted to our Lord through the Eucharist. When I came to McReynolds Hall she was always sitting in the same place anticipating receiving communion. Though incapacitated, she would smile and say, “Church” as she warmly anticipated that connection of grace with her Lord.
I looked for you today, Millie, when I came to visit. They told me you went Home to the Lord. I will miss the smile that always came from your heart. I will continue to keep you and your family in my prayers. Till we meet again, God Bless.
Judy, so very sorry to know that your mom passed away. It is a hard thing that you have live with, just hold on to the memories and she will always be with you.😪🌹
Joan so sorry for your loss! Your family is in my thoughts and prayers.
Millie was a beautiful Catholic woman. She loved receiving the Eucharist! Millie always gave me things that she thought I might be happy to have, like pretty wrapping paper, prayer cards, and greeting cards. She always wanted me to say hello to the others I visited that day. (Once those ladies even exchanged flowers!)
She watched Dancing with the Stars on TV and shared how much she liked to dance. Millie was a sweet and gentle lady. Rest In Peace, Millie dear. You belong to Jesus.
Will miss you Millie. Took communion to Millie for 20 years at Little Village- She was a very loving and giving person. Millie would be waiting at her door every Wed at 10 am for me.. you are now in the arms of the Lord. Josie
Sorry to hear of your Mom’s passing.
