Millie was such a dear friend and we shared many good times together playing tennis & golf. All of Gettysburg, her family and many friends will miss her. My condolences to you, Becky and Randy as well as to the rest of the family.

I will always remember Millie Bankert as a poised, gentle and very wise lady who was a special part of "the village" that shepherded me through my teens. She encouraged us in sports, generously hosted our sleepovers and served up warm breakfast rolls prior to our double session hockey practices. She and Dean were part of the robust tennis group in Gettysburg that taught us about true friendship and inspired us to play. A vibrant life, well-lived life!

Aunt Millie was a lovely person. I am so sorry for the world to lose her. I'm grateful for her presence in my life and the time my sister and I spent at her house. I can remember making doughnuts on her back porch and playing with her accordion when I stayed with her as a child.
