Obituary for Mildred "Millie" Sanders (Jones)

Mildred "Millie" Sanders (Jones)
Northborough

Mildred T. Sanders journeyed to heaven on August 21, 2017. She was born on November 17, 1926 in Northborough, the daughter of Elizabeth F. (England) Jones and Edwin A. Jones. Until marriage, she lived in the house on School Street in which she was born. She was a lifelong resident of Northborough until 2003. She moved to Boylston in 2005.

Millie graduated from Northborough High School in 1944. She was a graduate of Burdett College and Framingham State College. In her early years she was involved with a landscape business and a small farm. Over the remainder of her work life, she held positions in both the public and private sectors. Her last full-time position was with the Worcester Historical Museum. Following that, she worked part-time for the Northborough Senior Center, fully retiring in 1995.

Her husband, Albert Sanders III, who died in 2015, and her first husband, Robert E. Nelson, who died in 1960, predeceased her. Millie is survived by a very large and loving Sanders/Nelson family who will miss her dearly: Janet (Nelson) Keown and her husband, Joseph, of Ellington, CT; Deborah (Sanders) Brossi and her husband, Stephen, of Hudson; William Nelson and his wife, Eileen, of Boylston, Eric Sanders and his wife, Andrea, of Shrewsbury, James Nelson and his wife, Susan, of Charlton; David Sanders and his wife, Alexandra, of Durham, NC; Charles Nelson and his wife, Virginia, of Fairfield, IA; Brian Sanders of Northborough, Bruce Sanders and his wife, Deborah, of Martinsville, WV and Steven Sanders and his wife, Sheila, of Londonderry, NH. Eighteen grandchildren and twenty-three great-grandchildren and one great-great grandchild also survive her. She leaves one sister Janet Rogers of Northborough, and many nieces and nephews as well as grand nieces and nephews. Her brother Harry E. Jones and his wife, Doris, sister Carolyn F. Braman, sister Vernie C. Phelps and her husband, Allyn, predeceased her.

Millie was a long-time active member of Trinity Church. She enjoyed volunteering as a member of the Friends of the Northborough Senior Center and particularly loved her years volunteering for Meals-on-Wheels.

Most of all, Millie treasured her large family and enjoyed family vacations, holiday and other family celebrations, the sports and other activities of her children and grandchildren. Her interests were varied: round dancing, square dancing, raising collie dogs, travel, trailer camping, walking, dining out with friends and family, gardening and the out-of-doors.

Calling hours will be held at the Hays Funeral Home, 56 Main Street, Northborough, on Friday, August 25, 2017, from 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm. A Memorial Service will be held at 10 am in Trinity Church, 23 Main Street, Northborough, on Saturday, August 26, 2017, followed by a lunch gathering at the home of Stephen and Deborah Brossi in Hudson.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Trinity Church, Tower Hill Botanic Garden, the Worcester Historical Museum or the Humane Society. To view or leave a condolence please visit Millie’s Book of Memories at www.HaysFuneralHome.com.
