Millie and Lawrence farmed north of Melrose for almost 40 years until building their home in Melrose. In 2013, she moved to Park View Place assisted living in Melrose.
Millie was a member of St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Melrose, Christian Mothers and St. Elizabeth’s Society. Millie loved her time spent with her family, and she adored her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Faith, family and farm meant everything to her. Millie enjoyed spending time at the cabin on Big Birch Lake, entertaining family and friends, dancing, quilting, playing card games, crocheting and traveling. There always was a jigsaw puzzle ready to be worked on with others. She will be remembered for her kindness, charming wit and great sense of humor.
Survivors include her children, Jerry Mueller of Melrose, Marv (Wanda) Mueller of Healdsburg, California, Bonnie (Rick) Funk of Avon, Bob (Theresa) Mueller of Sauk Centre, Karen (John) Ellering of Cape Coral, Florida, Lois Mueller of St. Cloud, and Jan (Kurt) Wolter of Ham Lake; 13 grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren; sisters Rose Mary Binek of Little Falls and Dolores Philippi of St. Cloud; and sister-in-law Katherine “Kitty” Mueller of Melrose.
Millie was preceded in death by her parents; husband Lawrence Mueller Sept. 28, 2011; son Duane Mueller; brothers Clarence, Ambrose, Roman and Melvin Ramler; and sister Bernice Senger.
