Dear Elmlinger Family,
I met this dear sweet lady 35 years ago when I became part of the Bismark community. She was always a pleasure to be around. She will be dearly missed and you all have your precious memories to keep close to your hearts. God Bless Us All. Eternal Life Dear Millie Rose!
I am so sorry for your loss. As a nurse aide at the willows, I had a chance to get to know Millie very well. She was such a genuinely sweet woman, and I often told her not to tell anyone else she was my favorite. We used to call her the party animal because she spent many late evenings playing cards and spending time with her family. She was also a night owl and I would always stop and chat with her if I saw she was still awake. She loved her family more than anything, and she was so proud of all of you. Please know that your family is in my heart and prayers during this difficult time.
Thoughts and prayers for the Elmlinger family. May your faith, family and friends bring you comfort in the coming days.
We just saw Aunt Millie’s obituary, and want to tell you how very sorry we are to hear of her passing. So many memories….she was a wonderful person. I never heard her say a bad word about anyone!….an all-around good person. May your memories help you through this difficult time. Our prayers are with you.
