Mildred S. Waitman, of Evansville, passed away on Tuesday, November 22, 2016, at the Protestant Home.
Millie was born on April 6, 1923, to the late James R. and Ethel Spry. She graduated from Bosse High School in 1940, and went on to attend Lockyear Business College. Her professional resume included positions at George Koch Sons, and Servel, before arriving at Harding and Miller Music, which allowed her to also pursue her love for the piano. While at Harding and Miller, she was introduced to a dashing military man, who stole her heart through a long series of letters they exchanged while he completed his service in World War II. After he returned home, Millie married her beloved Earl in June of 1946. She soon traded the music store to stay home and raise two sons. She continued to play the piano and organ until fairly recently, and kept up with her classmates at Bosse, frequently attending their annual class reunions. She was also an excellent bowler for many decades, and enjoyed the competition as much as the camaraderie. Millie was always known for her great sense of humor and quick wit.
Millie is survived by her sons, Randy Waitman, and Gabriel Waitman (Pam), both of Evansville; sister-in-law Marilyn Waitman, and several nephews and nieces.
Millie was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Earl, her parents, and all her siblings, aunts and uncles.
Visitation will be from 11 am to 1 pm, and will conclude with a Celebration of Life, on Monday, November 28, 2016, at Alexander East Chapel, on Lincoln Avenue. Burial at Oak Hill Cemetery will be immediately following the Celebration of Life.
The family would like to thank the wonderful care and attention given to Millie by the doctors, nurses and caring staffs at Deaconess Hospital, St. Mary's Hospital, the Protestant Home, and AseraCare Hospice. We are grateful for the loving care and attention provided in Millie's time of need.
