Mildred Lee Craig, age 91 of Orlando, went through the gates of Heaven on February 22, 2017. Born October 28, 1925 and known as Millie, she was formerly of Welch, West Virginia.
Retired from the K-Mart Corporation, Millie became an integral contributor with her church and cooked in the kitchen for many years. Many would say her cooking was her talent. You could not stop by to say hello without being offered food and ultimately ending up eating something. Even if you said you did not want anything, she felt you needed to eat and wanted to make sure no one went away hungry. Cooking was her ministry and she thoroughly enjoyed it.
She also enjoyed to travel and had the opportunity to visit Japan and California, and enjoyed a bit of sailing on cruises just to name a few.
Predeceased by her husband, Gail T. Craig, Millie is survived by her daughter Linda Woodruff of Winter Garden, FL; son, Richard Craig (Sharon) of Old Town, FL; grand-daughters Nicole Berrios (Miguel) of Winter Garden, and Angelia Simmons (Charles) of Satellite Beach, FL; great-grandchildren Samantha and Madonna Simmons, Gabriel and Nathan Berrios; nephews, nieces, and many relatives and friends throughout the United States.
Services for Mildred Craig will be in the care of Carey Hand Cox-Parker Funeral Home 1350 West Fairbanks Avenue, Winter Park, FL and will be held Saturday, March 4,2017. There will be Visitation for family and friends at 1:00 PM, Memorial Service at 2:00 PM, followed with internment at Glen Haven Memorial Park, Winter Park, FL.
