Millie G. Byrd

Millie G. Byrd

Millie G. Byrd went home to be with her Savior, Wednesday, March 13, 2013.

She was a very kind person who loved Jesus, her family members and friends.

Millie was originally from California. She met Sonny Byrd in 1985, and married in 1989. They lived in Texas and Oregon before moving to the Menahga area in 1992.

Though limited in what she could do the last few years because of her health, she enjoyed spending time with people and enjoyed going to auctions finding items for her various collections (old lamps, dolls, and pigs.) She enjoyed the outdoors, especially spending time at the lake and gardening; roses brought her great delight.

Millie also found fulfill-ment in helping others and ministering however she could and was a member of Fellowship Baptist Church in Nevis. John 3:16 was her favorite Bible verse. She will be greatly missed by family and friends.

She is survived by her loving husband, Sonny Byrd Sr.; mother, Hazel Skogland; siblings, Lois McLain, Nancy Korach, Barbra Carson and Jerry Skogland; children, George Byrd, Mickey Byrd, Robby Odie, Sonny Byrd Jr., Christopher Lee Byrd, Claude Byrd and Amy Byrd; as well as 20 grandchildren.

Memorial service: 2 p.m. Saturday, April 27 at Fellowship Baptist Church located at Pleasant and Main St. in Nevis.
