Millie was born near Sundre, Alberta on May 21, 1928, third of six children to Lena (Sheets) and Harold Bird (both deceased, Westward-Ho, AB) and predeceased by her sister Annie (Robert) Westward-Ho, AB. She is survived by her brothers Howard (Sylvia) Bird, Westward-Ho, AB and Gordon (Shirley) Bird, Bowser, BC and her sisters Vera (Melvin, deceased) Rogers (Innisfail, AB) and Loretta (Clinton, deceased) Stone (Sundre, AB) and many nieces and nephews.

We know that Millie is running through the fields of flowers, long curly blond hair blowing in the wind, chasing after her Shetland pony, Mighty As A Rose, with Delbert, Travis and Charlie trying to catch up with her.
