In memory of
Mildred I. "Millie" Hunter
Hunter, Mildred I. "Millie" 7/8/1924 - 1/26/2020 Fort Myers Beach, Fl Mildred I. "Millie" Hunter, age 95, a 45 year plus Ann Arbor resident, passed peacefully on Sunday morning, January 26, 2020, from complications caused by aspiration pneumonia. Millie was surrounded by her loving family the last week of her life: all three of her kids, all four grandchildren, and her two great grandchildren. It was a beautiful week long "goodbye - celebration of life," with many hugs, kisses, and stories, and much laughter. We sent her sweet angelic soul off to heaven on a giant wave of love and adoration. She had no pain and no regrets, and was totally at peace with her impending physical death. In fact, she was more than ready, even excited, to make the leap into the wonderful unknown, as she especially wanted to reunite with her beloved husband, Roger, and all of her long since departed loved ones.Mildred Irene Carlson was born in Britton, South Dakota, on July 8, 1924, to Andrew and Esther Carlson, who were both born in Sweden. She was raised there and graduated in 1942. She attended and graduated from the Chillicothe Business College, in Chillicothe, MO. She worked in Denver for two years during the war, and then moved to Ann Arbor, MI to be with her older sister, Doris, where she got a job at the University Hospital. On September 20, 1946, in Ann Arbor, she met the love of her life, Roger Gene Hunter. They were married on October 14, 1950, and lived in Ann Arbor, until well after they retired, raising their three children there. Millie worked for over 15 years at the Ann Arbor Board of Realtors, serving in many office capacities, including Office Manager. They loved Ann Arbor, the theater, the sports, the good schools, and the vibrant culture, and despite having a couple of good opportunities to leave, the pull of Ann Arbor was just too strong for them. Millie is survived by her three grown children:Mark (Susan), Cathy (Richard Russel), and Nancy Kingsbury; her grandchildren Jessica Betz (Matt), Melissa Hunter, Scott Hunter (and fiance Rachel Guilliot), and Erin Russel; and her great grandchildren Hunter and Charlotte Betz. Millie always said that she had a wonderfully charmed life with her parents and sister, her beloved husband, children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. Ohhhh, how she loved her family. She was always somewhat quiet and shy, not real confident, but she survived, thrived, and blossomed after Roger's passing in 2002. Anyone who took the time to get to know her got sucked into her tractor beam of unconditional love and compassion. She was most adored her for big heart and her never-ending level of hope and optimism. She was the absolute heart and soul of her family! There will be a MEMORIAL SERVICE on Saturday, April 18, at 2:00 pm, at Washtenong Memorial Park, in Ann Arbor. Call Mark with any questions: 269-598-4911. DONATIONS in her memory can be made to "Friends of Lovers Key," a state park just near her Florida condo that Millie has passionately supported over the years (she has generously sponsored an exhibit on "Dunes and Beaches" for the new Discovery Center there which is being built now). The address is Lovers Key, 8700 Estero Blvd, Fort Myers Beach, FL 33931. Frazer Cremations & Funerals, frazerfunerals.com
