Lovingly known as “Meme” by her family, Mrs. Milner was kind, compassionate and thoughtful. A genuine people-person, she never met a stranger, always greeting everyone with her signature bright smile and friendly spirit. Mrs. Milner truly loved music and enjoyed spending time gardening and outdoors. Her greatest joy of all came from spending time with her family and friends.
