Lois Margy McMillen most times preferred being called Marge or Margy, born on September 19, 1935 to Velma (Ellis) and James Harold Offield, Humeston, Iowa. Married Lee McMillen February 14, 1954. Recently celebrated their 64th wedding anniversary.
Marge was preceded in death by her parents, her sisters Juanita Gilman and Genevieve Bring.
Marge was a devoted wife, mother, grand, great and great-great grandmother, sister-in-law, aunt and friend to all. So many of Rick, Nancy, Laura and the grandchildren's friends consider her their mom or grandmother.
Often you could find Marge with family and friends having a cup of coffee, crocheting, playing cards, board games, dominoes, bowling, camping, watching many of her favorite TV shows or movies. Spending time with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
She spent a vast amount of years with Lee in his Boy Scout adventures. Starting as a Den Mother to receiving the Silver Fawn.
She is survived by her husband, Lee McMillen children, Rick (Linda) McMillen, Nancy Brooks (Dennis), Laura Hennick (Dale), 13 Grandchildren, 12 Great Grandchildren, 2 Great-Great Grandchildren, +one more soon. And a large extended family (too many to count).
Lee So sorry to hear of Margy's passing, I will always remember her from my earlier years of small engines at Ballard High School & the many years after when I would visit your shop on East Lincoln Way for my parts. She would scold me if I didn't have the model & family number of the engine I was working on.But somehow between Margy & you, I always left with everything I needed. I know she was a GREAT asset to you & a good friend to many of your customers. Sincerely, Randy Kennedy
Love you Aunt Margy!!❤ Godspeed!
I loved this sweet lady like a sister. We spent many many hours walking, talking, camping, playing games and just each others families company. Her three children as almost like my own. Love you Margy ,Lee, Rick, Nancy, and Laura. Praying God's blessings on each of you.
So sorry to hear this. Thoughts and prayers for all of you Nancy.
