Mildred “Millie” Granger, loving wife, mother, grandmother and friend, passed away peacefully at her home surrounded by her family.
Born February 5, 1927 in Spring Canyon, Utah, to George Bogdin and Mary “Nellie” Olsen Mackley. Ted and Millie met while working at the State Tax Commission at the State Capital. Millie then moved to IMCO as a keypunch supervisor. Ted finally asked Millie out and after dating only 6 months, they were married on July 13, 1959. Later Solemnized in the Salt Lake Temple.
Best mom and grandmother ever. Anyone who knew Millie knew she was a sweet and kind person but also had her feisty side. At her ward, Millie passed out the programs, hugs and kisses for 17 years and it was known as Millie’s door.
Millie kept us very close as a family and we spent great times fishing. Millie was quite the fisherman even though she was afraid of the water.
Millie worked many years at Lancer Automotive. During that time her granddaughter Jensen was born and, Millie tended her at the shop and they spent years together. Jensen would tell grandma, “you are my very best friend”.
Survived by husband, sons, Lorin (Shelley), Lance (Kim), grandchildren, Jensen Granger, Heather Rivera, Matthew Bate, Jason Scherbel, Brooke Thiede, Jen Roberts, Taylor Granger and Bry Granger, sisters, Ilene Fish and Ila Meier, and brother, Floyd Mackley.
