Millie, affectionately known as Peach, Peaches, Peachy and Aunt Peachy was an avid bird lover and believed every life was worth saving down to the bugs in her house that she would relocate outside. She would often get in the car and go for rides just “to see the cows”. She cheated at board games, even going so far as to “accidentally” tip the Scrabble board over when losing, and had a habit of shouting out the answers when she clearly said she didn’t want to play. She loved Eminem, and spent countless hours doing crossword puzzles. She was a friend to many. She was selfless, accepting and shared her love freely. Millie spent many years working at Marine Midland bank, later HSBC. After her retirement she began working at BOCES as a substitute teacher. But her favorite job was taking care of her grandkids and watching them play sports and perform in their various activities, or just spending time with them and being in their presence.
