Wow -- 92 today mom! Can't believe it and that you've been gone almost 4 years. So often someone will tell me how much they miss you, but we do everyday in this household. Not long ago, Haiku (who is always quiet in the veterinarian's office) went into a crying wagging craze when he saw a woman with a can. Until she turned around, I just know he thought it was you! I hope you were able to welcome our Bonsai recently. I feel so much better knowing her grandma was there for her. Will find a photo of you and her to add to the gallery. Happy Birthday and Ja cie kocham!!

This website is called "Forever Missed," but I know all reading this will agree that my mom is forever loved as well! Added a lovely photo of her to the gallery today decked out for Autumn in Southern California with the jades blooming behind her, almost looking snow-capped. She so enjoyed being with her family and friends especially as the holidays rolled around. Love & hugs to heaven mom! XO

Last Friday morning Milly was on my mind while driving to our once shared greeting card class. I was making up stories in my head about what she might be doing, such as playing a practical joke on someone, telling someone they looked very nice today, telling someone else that her meal tasted so good today, having a happy conversation with a small child that just hurt itself, and smiling at someone that appeared to be a little sad. I was missing her so much. Tonight I was reading my e-mails and discovered the update on her Memorial page; I saw her date of passing and it was November 21. Now I suspect that Milly was present in my mind because she knew she could make me happy one more time even if she wasn't physically present.

When my mom came to California to live with Paul, me and our then furry child Sushi, one of the things she delighted in was going once a month to a different local Tea Room. I remember her saying joyfully, "This is what I always dreamed we'd do when you grew up!" Glad we had those special moments together! Adding a photo of her enjoying one of these very outings to the gallery. Pinky up mom as you now sip that tea with daddy up in heaven.

Aunt Milly always loved roses. She would talk about how beautiful they are. So I am leaving this rose (pretend it looks like a rose) for Aunt Milly. Hope you and Uncle Cas are doing well together! My love and prayers go out to you both of you along with Denise and Paul. Love, David Mark

As I write this I am sipping coffee from a mug sent to me that reads Dog Mom, with a picture that looks like our Yorkie, Snickers, the reverse has Dee with two puppy paws. EVERY morning I drink from this cup and remember Milly and what a wonderful person she was and how much she loved her daughter and all her friends and loved ones some here and others who had gone before her most espcecially her husband. You are loved!

I woke up this morning thinking of Milly, not realizing that this is the first anniversary of her death. I think of her often and miss her. I know she is "up there" kidding the other angels and is also protecting her family "down here."

What an exceptional lady Ms. Milly was! She took interest in my (brief) study of Czech language, kept all us students informed by email and encouraged us with great energy and positivity. When I got married she sent a charming music box as a wedding present. Years later it was she who thought to inform me that language classes would now be available for children. So thoughtful.

OUR ANGEL MILLY I met Milly when I became employed at Highland Memorial Gardens in 1995. Milly sensed I was nervous and she immediately put me at ease. She was very friendly and more than helpful in my transition to this new position. Milly always had a smile or a kind word to everyone she came in contact with, she was a very positive force in our office and throughout the Baldwin-Fairc

It was my pleasure and good luck to meet Milly in January of 1953 at a Doctors office in Schenectady, New York. I was new to the area and she took me under loving wing. In our most recent talks she told me how good her were to her. Virginia Barger

Milly was indeed a unique individual that always had a hug and a smile for anyone that she ever met. I was blessed to have ever crossed paths with this beautiful person. She just had a genuine love for everyone and made me feel that love many times. I will continue thinking of you and I feel comfort in knowing you will always be my angel. Much love and comfort to Paul and Denise

Milly you were such a special person for me with your kindness. I remember you said you loved butterflies and one day you would become a butterfly. That made me sad and you noticed right away and started joking around to make me feel happy. The day before I got the news I was having coffee and thinking about you and I saw a big butterfly sitting next to me for almost 10 min moving her wings up and

Milly gave me my first dress--from Saks!--unwittingly creating a clothes monster. Several years later, she brought me a very chic purse that I had been coveting in the Sears Catalog. How did she even know? Not long ago, she presented me with a silk scarf with different dog breeds on it. But most, I remember how she & my mother would joke around when they got together. Keep laughing, Milly!

Dear Denise..Your mom was one of a kind and I loved her, even when I called her "brat", for fun. I met her when she was working at hIGHLAND mEM., WHEN MY BELOVED jULIE DIED...sHE WAS wonderful and would leave a rose or card from Julie. On Mother's day she would send a card from Julie, but more than that, we ate out a lot, visited each other often. She was a great friend.xox's

To the sister of my heart :How heavy are the heart and soul that paired with yours for these eighty-two+ half years, as class mates, Sokol partners, Bohemian School when we were six, sorority sisters at Queens College, life-long confidantes (our secrets in your keep), mutual mentors and coaches, shared tears and laughter. Oh, did you showed me how to win friends and influence people! Wit!

Millie gave me a book in 1993 with her inscription,"to Joanne,So that we may share each day in thought and prayer". I still read this book everyday. This was Millie, caring, loving and thoughtful. Our lose is heavens gain. She was an exceptional lady and I will miss her everyday. my prayers for Denise and Paul.

She was always smiling...that's what I remember most. I'd like to say I met Mrs. Urbanski thru Denise but, actually, I met Denise thru Mrs. Urbanski! Years ago, decades in fact, this wonderful woman who was smiling held me in her arms. I was just a child then and throughout the years "Milly" was always smiling...I will keep her beautiful, loving light with me forever. My love to D & P

I can't imagine my life on earth without Milly in it. She was my Millicent and I was her Penelope. She was a woman who stood for devotion to family & friends; who fought the frailties of old age and displayed a zest for life we can all admire. May God hold you in the palm of His hand, my love. I adored you. Love to Denise and Paul.

Milly never had a harsh word for anyone. She made a positive impact on all she met in her 88 yr journey. Once on a trip for PTA we talked so much we drove right by our exit and learned we kept the ladies in the next room awake that night because of all our laughter. She was a delight to know and now will be one of our brightest shining stars. Go with God, you'll be missed. GREAT MEMORIES!

Helena was always in my thoughts going back to the late 70's when she painted my hair with "white out". I called her at HMG weekly at 4:55 to see if she was still at work-She always was-I asked for toliet tissue and paper towel counts-She called me Scrooge-Helena was always loved & will surly be missed.God Speed- Jim Hora-Scrooge

My wife Evelyn, a card-making buddy with Millie, also passed away the 12th of June. I had the good fortune of meeting Millie several time as I drove "Evie" to Rose's. Millie was somewhat of a "flirt". We each got a "kick" out of it, for I also am 88. Yes, she will be missed. Russ

Milly was so thoughtful and sweet to me when I first joined Los Angeles Sokol. She never forgot my birthday and she gave me cute gifts and beautiful, home-made Birthday and Christmas Cards. While she was ASLA Educational Director, she used to send me Czech cross-word puzzles and proverbs. Milly was like a grandmother; she comforted me when I lost my beloved cat and sent me lots of emails

I met Milly several years ago when she came into my office at PCC. It was love at first sight...me for her and her for me. She liked to call herself "my favorite senior delinquent" She always shared a smile and blessed me with her beautiful hand made cards. I also enjoyed her delightful emails. Now she's in Paradise reunited with loved ones and waiting for us to join the party one day.

I was so blessed to have had the opportunity to work with Milly - A true Friend -at HMG.She loved everyone and everyone loved her. She had the most beautiful personality. She made me laugh everyday. We kept in touch after she moved to Calif. Her beautiful hand made cards always came for me and my husband Gene. Love You Always.

Whoever met Milly, felt fortunate. I have never met such a beautiful and full of love and life angel like Milly. It was a love from the first sight. She will always bring a smile to my face and warmth to my heart. Kocham Cie, Milly!

I met Milly for the first time in 2005 when being on Fulbright Exchange. My family and I kept coming to see her learning Czech once every month.Milly was the sweetest person I have met in my life. She always kept telling me she was the third Grandma for my little one Adela. She indeed was, is and always will be. I will truly miss you Milly.
Posted by Barb Rohrer on 28th November 2012
I thought of Milly as my own personal Betty White. A young spirit, beautiful, kind, funny, animal lover, people lover, sharp-witted, and what a personality. Her many friends can attest to that. And, how she loved Denise and Paul. She spoke of them often with pride. I miss our conversations and her good humor. Heaven has a new angel and comedienne.
