Mildred Gertrude “Millie” Montgomery
May 4, 1935 - April 18, 2022
Mildred Gertrude “Millie” Montgomery, age 86, of Wilmington, DE, passed away on Monday, April 18, 2022, quietly in her sleep.
Born in Virginia, on May 4, 1935, Millie was a loving mother and proudly raised 4 wonderful boys. She retired from the hospitality industry after many years of dedicated service.
Millie was raised on a farm, where her favorite animal was the pig. She inherited her love of cooking from her mother, a skill and memory she fondly passed to her granddaughter. She was a fantastic cook and loved making huge meals for the holidays. Always welcoming to friends and family with hospitality, you would be sure to be greeted with a hug and smile and to leave stuffed.
Millie loved flowers and the color pink. In her leisure time she enjoyed reading the paper, playing bingo, going out to see shows, and trying out different dining spots. She was outgoing and loved to talk to anyone about her family and friends. Always supportive to her sons, she was extremely proud of their accomplishments and loved to let everyone know about them. Most of all she loved spending time with her family, pets, and close friends.
Millie was preceded in death by her beloved sons, Jerry Montgomery, and Tommy Montgomery. She is survived by her loving sons, Gary Montgomery and Barry Montgomery (Katie Mitchell); and grandchildren, Michelle Montgomery, and Gary Montgomery, Jr.
Services will be held privately.
