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 Nov. 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 People's Heritage Bank, Thomaston Branch, now T.D. Bank, in 1991 after elven 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 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.

She is predeceased by her parents; beloved husband Arthur in 2012; 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, Fla.; 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.
