Millie's favorite things to do was play solitaire on her phone and rummy with others. If you joined her in a game, you were almost guaranteed to lose. Millie enjoyed calling bingo at the Obetz Senior Center with friends and her late sister, Marg.
She loved celebrating with family on the fourth of July, fishing and gardening. She loved to work in her yard and take care of the birds and squirrels every day.
