WILL, Mildred J.
Millie J. Will passed away on August 21, 2013 in Roseville, CA after a long determined fight with illness.
Millie was born on April 13, 1945 (a Friday- hence her nickname- ‘Jinx’) in Wilkinsburg, Pennsylvania to Charles and Ruth Haslett. She moved to the Bay Area in 1956 and attended Burlingame schools. She had a long career with San Mateo Sheet Metal Contractors Association where she became executive director and then became partners with her son in Golden State Towing which is now located in Sacramento. She also assisted her husband in his business- Russ Will Mechanical in Hayward.
Millie loved to travel and was known as a great hostess. She and her husband, Russ maintained homes in Castro Valley and Carmichael. She especially enjoyed time with family and friends and would often entertain in both residences.
Millie was preceded in death by both parents and is survived by her loving husband, Russell L. Will, her children Cindy Cole and Jeff Welch, her grandchildren Jennifer, Nicole, Keith and Cody as well as her sister Judi (Larry) Lovell and many nieces, nephews, cousins and stepchildren, who will all miss her greatly.
