    Nut roll , Grandma Katherine’s cutout cookies and pie dough. Mom could make them like no one else.
    And I still have lottery tickets I just bought in OR for her. I don’t know how she won so often. I was going to give them to her when I got to OH. But she couldn’t wait to start the great adventure. Love you Mom

    Awwwwww….sweet Mildred. She was an absolute joy and I loved her sense of humor. I was truly blessed to have known her throughout the years.

      I was one of the aides at Green Meadows and I absolutely loved Millie. She would always threaten to “kick me in the butt” when I would try and make her get up before 11am 🤣 I was there in her passing with my mom as her nurse and I cried when she left us. She will be dearly missed.
