Surrounded by her loving family, Marjorie McMillen, 95, went to be with the Lord on February 23, 2018. Marjorie was born on August 13, 1922, to the late Charles and Mary Lehmann.
She married the love of her life, Robert McMillen, on August 8, 1942, and moved to Lewiston, NY, where their little family increased to eight. While living in Lewiston, she was a charter member of Femmes En Force, which organized the Sesquicentennial. She was a contributing member of the committee that started St. Peter's R.C. School, and she was active in the Lewiston Fire Company Ladies Auxiliary, Girls Scouts, and Cub Scouts.
In 1973, they were transferred to Fredericksburg, VA, where she continued her volunteer work. They later moved to Melbourne, FL, where she enjoyed traveling, golf, and playing cards. But her greatest pleasure was spending time with her growing family. This past July, she and Bob were honored at a three-day family reunion, attended by five generations, to celebrate their 75 years of marriage.
In addition to her husband, she is survived by her six children, Bonnie Stephenson (Clark) Jester, Robert (Donna) McMillen III, Judith (Joseph) Paone, Kathleen (Edward) Blinco, Elizabeth (Charles) Burton-Garcia, and Nancy McMillen-Hudak. Twenty grandchildren; 30 great-grandchildren; and two great-great-grandsons, will also carry on her legacy. She leaves behind one brother, Charles Lehmann III, and several nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by sons-in-law, James Stephenson and Brian Burton; and one great-grandchild, Cole Johnson.
A Memorial Mass and Celebration of her life will be held on Tuesday, February 27, at St. Joseph's Miller Street Catholic Church in Palm Bay, at 10:30 AM. A private internment will be held on Wednesday at Cape Canaveral National Cemetery.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Hospice of Health First, 1131 W. Melbourne, Suite 201, W. Melbourne, FL 32904 or Sacred Heart Community Clinic, P.O. Box 5843, Round Rock, TX 78683.
