Millie was born in Ada, Oklahoma, on July 15, 1934 and was one of 8 chldren. She made Bakersfield her home for the past 49 years. Together with her husband, Earl whom she was married to for 53 years and who preceded her in death just nine months ago, she raised five daughters. Our mother, mama, grandmommy and GG was a constant loving presence for her family. She was her grandchildren's biggest fan, attending their many activities.
Family and church were everything to Millie. Her love of the Lord was demonstrated constantly in her devotion and generosity to her children, grandchildren and friends. Her years working at Brocks, Casa Moore Jewelers and the Kern County Welfare Department as an eligibility worker, left Mildred with many friends. Her favorite pastimes were camping with her grandchildren, playing cards and canasta with friends, and her monthly family dinners with her sisters and brothers.
