Millie was born in Worcester. She was the daughter of the late Louis L. and Nettie (Pike) Bacon. She was educated in Worcester schools.
Millie was a full-time Mom and homemaker, but before that she was trained and worked as a welder during the War. Later in life Millie worked at the former Data General, and Julio’s Market in the Bakery Dept., she loved her work and the people she met there.
She had a love for animals, she had an uncanny way with any animal regardless of disposition, and they all adored her. She had a love for people, and treated them all kindly and fairly, and never had a bad word to say about anybody. She possessed a fun-loving spirit; she had a great love of family, and enjoyed bowling, playing cards, and watching the Red-Sox, and cooking and baking fabulous dishes for friends and family. She took great pride in her home, and enjoyed working in it, and outside in her gardens. Millie was a private person, who dedicated her life to her family, especially her children, grand and great grandchildren. She will be missed by all who knew her.
Millie’s family would like to acknowledge the kind staff at Gentle Care, for making Mom’s final days at home wonderful. Special thanks to Miriam, Lydia and Sandy for their kindness and devotion during a difficult time.
Relatives and friends are invited to attend a visiting hour from 11-12PM Friday January 11, 2013 in the Britton-Shrewsbury Funeral Home, 648 Main Street., followed by her funeral service at Noon in the funeral home. Burial will be in Worcester County Memorial Park.
