Millie was a nurse's aide on the home front effort during World War II and first met her husband, Art, to whom she was married 67 years, at a USO dance before he was deployed to Europe. She was a member of Hazardville United Methodist Church and formerly belonged to the Red Hat Ladies. She loved sewing and was a leader of the 4-H Sewing Club. She leaves three daughters, Sharon Chiary, of Hudson, Florida, Holly McKinney and her husband, Robert, of Camano Island, Washington, and Tami Zawistowski and her husband, Edward, of East Granby; a brother, Robert Putek, of Gardiner, Maine; four grandchildren and spouses, Holly and Roland Gagnon, Brian and Amber Chiary, Heather and Lazarus Chernik, and Timothy McKinney and Cheryl Holmes; four great-grandchildren, Cameron Gagnon, Morgan Chiary, Runa Chernik, and Kathryn Chernik; and several nieces, nephews, and cousins; and many friends.
