She was a member of the Lancaster County Farm Women, Number 19, for over 55 years and served as president. Milly volunteered for Easter Seals for over 21 years and also at Brethren Village. Her interests included: oil painting, flower gardening and arranging, cooking, baking and making cookies and candy that she shared with family and friends.
