Mildred B. Avant died at the age of 85 at the hospice house of Charleston. She was a widow and a homemaker. She lived most of her life in Walterboro ,SC. She has been at Sandpiper Nursing Homes for several years. I met MS. Millie about 6 years ago and she was a very good friend. She loved animals and had a special place in her heart for the pets that visited her at the nursing home. Her favorite thing in life was reading. She loved books and she could read them as fast as we could supply them. She was a great puzzle solver. You could always find her reading or doing the puzzle Find a word or a Crossword puzzle. Ms. Millie gave her heart over to the Lord and she will forever live with Jesus. I am sure she has already asked for a book or puzzle and with our wonderful God , he has given her one with all the other beautiful things that surrounds her now. I will forever miss you but I will see you again my Beautiful and Wonderful friend. Thanks for the waving before you went home.
