Obituary for Mildred Hartman

Mildred (Millie) Hartman

(October 17, 1928 - March 1, 2018)

Mildred Helen Hartman passed away peacefully in her sleep on March 1, 2018 at the age of 89

Born in Ossineke, Michigan in 1928, Mildred Behning was the valedictorian of her graduating class, and a published poet.

Shortly after graduation, she fell in love and married Edwin Hartman. The story goes that they were ice skating. Millie kept falling down on the ice and Eddie kept picking her back up until he finally said, “I better marry that girl before she freezes to death”.

Millie and Eddie left farm life and moved to Detroit, where they raised three wonderful children. Millie also worked as a private secretary with excellent short hand skills. She also was an assistant editor for a local paper.

Millie was known for her sense of humor and made a lasting impression on everyone she met. She was very active in her church community, she loved playing Bingo, and her favorite past time was watching the Detroit Tigers.

Beloved wife of the late Edwin for 39 years. Dearest mother of Cheryl Connelly, Kim Thomas Hartman and James Scott (Patricia) Hartman. Loving grandmother of Matthew (Kristen) Connelly, Leslie Connelly (Deus), Edwin Hartman and Mallory (Robert) Touroo, and great-grandmother of Lily and Aubrey Connelly and Charlotte Touroo.
