Millie Gill

1934 - 2021


Millie Gill, 86, went home to be with the Lord on April 12th of 2021 in Grandview, Texas.

Millie was born on August 17, 1934, daughter of Victor and Iona Mallory of Cooter, MO.

Millie was a faithful servant for her Lord throughout her life.  She played the piano beautifully, she enjoyed reading and cross-stitch and the light of her life was her grandson, Stephen Gartrell.   Widowed at a very young age, Millie raised a daughter that she also adored.  You were not able to spend more than 10 minutes with Millie without hearing about her wonderful family. She was so very proud of all of them.

Those left to cherish her memory are her daughter, Lucretia Gartrell and spouse Steve; sister Loretta Tidwell and spouse Jim; grandchild, Stephen Gartrell and spouse Erika, great-granddaugher, Leslie Gartrell and several nieces and nephews and numerous friends that she had been blessed with throughout her life.
A private memorial will be held on May 8, 2021 in Joshua, Texas.

My heart grieves with you at the news of Millie's passing. What a special lady she was, so talented in so many ways. One of her greatest desires was to glorify her Lord with a life of service. She was so independent and was quite capable of carrying her own groceries to her apartment--using her walker to hang bags from the handles and to balance other bags on the seat. She wanted to stay busy even in the assisted living home--helping out in the office. I have missed our visits during the quarantine caused by the coronavirus. May wonderful memories bring joy and comfort to family and friends!

Millie was a hard working, kind and inspiring person.  Her years working with the Arkansas Baptist Convention were joyous.  She enjoyed everyone and everyone enjoyed her.  She was a proud moma and grandmother!  Thankful for the Servant Heart God gave her.
