Millie Kiger Dunaway (September 29, 2015)

Millie Kiger Dunaway (May 5, 1928 – September 29, 2015). We celebrate the qualities that make Millie so special. An enormously talented woman, she believed her family was her greatest work of art. For 66 years, she created a full life with her high school sweetheart, Ray. Millie often joked that they started a dynasty, referring proudly to her four children, Claudia, Connie, Cheryl and David, their spouses and her 10 grandchildren and 5 great grandchildren. She loved her family (and all animals) fiercely and protectively. Gifted at the arts, she bequeathed a wonderful legacy of paintings, poems, and recipes. Millie’s favorite Shakespeare quote (adapted) best describes her passing: “When she shall die take her and cut her out into stars and she shall make the face of heaven so fine.” Knowing that our dearest Millie continues to shine gives us peace.

There will be a private service held at the convenience of the family. Arrangements are under the direction of Zechar Bailey Funeral Home, Greenville, Ohio.

It is the wishes of the family that memorial contributions be given to the Wayne HealthCare Cancer Center. Condolences for the family may be sent to www.zecharbailey.com
