Millicent Ruth Brewer, age 83, of Orlando, Florida, passed away peacefully at home on Feb. 14, 2022.
Millicent was born on Nov. 29, 1938 in New York, New York, the daughter of Millicent (Pamquist) and Robert Roeder. She later moved to Fort Lauderdale, Florida as a young teenager.
Predeceased by her parents, she is survived by her husband Bo Brewer of 61 years; her daughter Dee Brewer of Orlando, Florida; grandchildren Katie Sibley of Dresden, Maine and David Alan Sibley and wife Jess, of Eau Claire, Wisconsin; three great-grandchildren all of Eau Claire, Wisconsin; a son and his family.
Her passion for quilting earned her many 1st place ribbons at the Fryeburg and Windsor Fairs in Maine. Nieces, nephews, and new babies would receive a special quilt made with love on their special day. While moving to Maine in 1970 she picked up knitting from Bo's Auntie.
Up until a few months before her passing she continued to play the piano and the organ. While living for a short time in an assisted living facility, she was asked to leave her door open so all the residents could enjoy the music she played.
After achieving a hole in one in golf she decided that was the end of her golf career. Millie enjoyed traveling and one year was spent on the road in their motor home. They even loaded the motor home on to a barge and headed to an outer island off of Alaska. Also, she spent many years on the old pine boards enjoying watching her grandkids participate in their sporting events, and also supporting the other youths of the Boothbay region. At 50+, she and Bo picked up downhill skiing so they could enjoy it with their grandchildren.
For many years Millie belonged to the different chapters of the Eastern Star. Millie served in several offices, from Worthy Matron, Conductress, Associate Conductress and Treasurer.
Graveside interment will be held at Florida National Cemetery, Bushnell, Florida on March 4 at 1 p.m.
