OBITUARY: Mildred “Millie” F. Myers

Mildred “Millie” F. Myers, 79, of Sturgeon Bay, died Jan. 24, 2019 at the Skilled Nursing Facility.  She was born June 6, 1939 in Philadelphia to Alfred and Margaret (Dunn) Myers.

Millie was raised in Colwyn, Deleware County, Pennsylvania and attended Catholic school for ten years in southwest Philadelphia.  She started working at St. Francis Country House in Lansdowne, PA for 18 years and then moved to New Jersey after marrying Jack Regan. 

In 1975, Millie and Jack moved to Sturgeon Bay where Jack took a teaching job at N.W.T.I.  She started working at the Dorchester in 1977 and was there for 30 years.  Over those years, she made many friends and few enemies.  Millie was active in the Hospital Auxiliary, Door County Quilters, the Women’s Club, and she also volunteered at the Door County Cancer Center. 

Millie enjoyed her card playing group and her wonderful, helpful neighbors and friends.  She will also be remembered for her delicious cheese cakes.  She would swear like a sailor but always followed with “Jesus, Mary and Joseph forgive me.” She resided in Sturgeon Bay for 40 years.

She is survived by three nieces, Theresa Flanagan, Linda Myers, and Kathleen Wahl; two nephews, Francis (Barbara) Myers and Kevin (Amanda) Myers; great-nieces and great-nephews; and many, many good friends.

Millie was preceded in death by her parents, brother Francis E. (Nancy) Myers; two infant brothers, infant sister and niece Little Nancy Myers.

Memorial Services will be 11 am Thursday, Jan. 31, 2019 at Corpus Christi Church, the Rev. Carl Schmitt officiating.  Friends may call after 10 am at the church until time of services. Memorials may be directed to the Door County Humane Society in her name. Forbes Funeral Home & Cremations is handling arrangements.
