Millie passed away peacefully surrounded by the love of her family and friends. She will be dearly missed by all those that she touched. During her short illness, her incredible strength and dignity was a great example and source of comfort to her family.

In Calgary she grew up, got married and had 4 daughters, who will miss her profoundly: Cindy (Tim) Down, Tracy (Greg) Bussing, Tammy (Ron) Dodd, Holly (Bruno) Milanko. In addition to being the most amazing mother, she was also a loving, caring and supportive grandmother who was extremely proud of all of her grandchildren: Lindsay (Ted), Melissa, Kristy (Kellen), Brooke (Derek), Danielle, Samantha, Siena, Ryan and Brandon also great-grandson Devon. Millie also leaves behind her companion of over 25 years, Eric Nissen and her devoted and much loved sister, Mary Boettcher, her lifelong friends, Sheila Lundmark and Erwin & Anna Boegershausen. As Millie was one of 14 children, she is also survived by numerous nieces and nephews. Millie was predeceased by her parents, Rachel and Harry Hall, and 12 siblings. Millie loved to socialize and entertain family and friends. She was an avid golfer and a Flames Fan. Millie and Eric were very fortunate to have had over 25 years together enjoying family, friends and many winter breaks in Phoenix, Arizona & Laughlin, Nevada. Millie was an example to all of us on how to live life to its fullest; she leaves behind a legacy of kindness, compassion and wisdom. Millie was a beautiful person who always looked for the good in others.
