Born in Oswego, she was the daughter of (late) Mr and Mrs Eugene and Catherine (Harrington) Hogan.

At the age of three, she moved to Mechanic Falls, Maine, to be raised by her loving (late) aunt, Anna, and uncle, Victor Bloom.

Upon her uncle’s death, she and her aunt moved back to Oswego where she met her future husband, Jimmie.

During World War II, Millie worked at Springfield Arms gun factory.

Once back in Oswego she worked at the Oswego Chocolate Works and then as a homemaker.

In her 40s, she went back to school to become a Licensed Practical Nurse and worked at Oswego Hospital in pediatrics.

Millie was an active member of the Sacred Heart Church and founding member of the choir, Scriba Senior Citizens, Scriba bunco club, and also founding member of the Scriba Fire Auxiliary.

She enjoyed her time with family at their camp on Lake Ontario, traveling, especially to Maine, and time spent with her loving husband of 70 years.

She enjoyed life to the fullest and would playfully tease those around her.

She fulfilled that promise.
