Millie & my mom (& subsequently young me) became good friends in the early 60's when Millie was the choir director at Trinity Methodist Church. Pretty sure the reason we changed to Central Ave was because of Millie. We used to go caroling with her & then return to her little upstairs apartment decked out for Christmas for the best tea parties. She loved my mothers homemade caramels. I remember when she went to Persia/Iran for the Peace Corps. I still have a pair of "I dream of Jeanie" pants she brought back to my mom. At RHS, I had to learn to call her Miss Carroll. We stayed in touch with annual Christmas card messages. Such a classy, educated woman & role model. 🕯❤️

My great aunt was always so interesting and fun to talk to. We played some very competitive games of tennis, croquet, scrabble, dominos and Trivial Pursuit throughout the years. She would often make my birthday cake as well as fabulous pies for other occasions and was a great cook. I have fond memories of finding/hiding Easter eggs and baskets amongst the daffodils by the stream at her house, searching for the perfect live Christmas tree and traveling to Europe and Colorado with her. She was very intelligent and even within the last few weeks, she continued to amaze me with her memory and knowledge.

I taught with Millie at Fountain City in the early 1960s. She was one of the best and greatly respected.
