WARREN – Margaret W. ‘Maggie’ Mills, 90, died peacefully at her home, with her loving son and daughter-in-law at her side, Saturday, March 28, 2020.

Born in Thomaston, November 2, 1929, she was the daughter of Albert H. and Mildred Williamson Wallace.
At the age of three Maggie moved to Rockland with her parents. Here she attended Rockland High School, graduating with the Class of 1949. While in high school, Maggie worked at J. J. Newbury’s after school and on the weekends. After graduation she went to work there in the office as a bookkeeper.

Over the years she held other bookkeeping positions at Grants Dairy and later Achorn’s Department Store in Camden for eleven years. Maggie later retired from Peoples Heritage Bank, Thomaston Branch, now T.D. Bank, in 1991 after eleven years of employment. After retiring, Maggie also served as the bookkeeper for her son’s construction business.

On May 17, 1968 Maggie married Lewis ‘Arthur’ Mills, Sr. Together they enjoyed 43 years of marriage. In September of 1969 Maggie and Art moved to their home in Warren.

A former member of First Baptist Church of Rockland, she most recently attended Second Congregational Church of Warren.

Family was very important to Maggie. She greatly enjoyed many family cookouts and other special gatherings with family and friends. Weekly Beano games were another favorite pastime. She looked forward each September to going to the New England State Expo in Springfield, Mass and spending a fun weekend with her son and daughter-in-law. Her friends and ‘church family’ were a constant support to her both before and during her illness and Maggie’s family will be forever grateful for their thoughtfulness and the part they played, filling the void left after her husband’s passing.

Maggie will be sadly missed by all who loved her.

Predeceased by her parents; her beloved husband Arthur in 2012; her step-sons, Richard L. Mills, Sr., Lewis Arthur Mills, Jr.; step-grandson Richard L. Mills, Jr.; four sisters-in-law and their husbands; several cousins and many close friends; Maggie is survived by her son Stephen L. Mills and his wife Pamela of Warren; step-son Scott L. Mills and his wife Christine of Port St. Lucie, FL; step-daughter Judith Atwood of Thomaston; daughter-in-law Charlotte Mills of Thomaston; several step-grandchildren and step-great-grandchildren; one sister-in-law Pearl Mills Farmer of Windsor, GA; several nieces and nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews; cousins including two special cousins, Joni Williamson Peters and her family of Tenants Harbor; Ruth Williamson Hanson and her family of Augusta; as well as many dear friends.
The Mills family would like to extend a heartfelt ‘Thank You’ to the staff at the Sussman Hospice House for their excellent care during her stay and for helping make it possible for her to return home for her final week. Additionally, the staff at Maine HealthCare at Home who made her last days as comfortable as possible.
In light of recent social events, services for Maggie will be announced in the Summer.

Arrangements are in the care of Burpee, Carpenter & Hutchins Funeral Home 110 Limerock Street, Rockland.

I've been thinking of you both since Pam texted me the news. I enjoyed the times that Maggie and I attended Pam's parties together and chatting with her while Pam recuperated at home following her accident. Losing a mother is so hard, but I hope you know I'm here for you both and hope you'll let me help in any way that I can. Love you!!! Trish
