Mildred E. "Millie" Grady
Mildred E. "Millie" Grady, nee Landry, 78, of Theresa, entered into eternal peace on Monday, Dec. 4, 2006 at Kathy Hospice, town of Polk.
Millie was born on June 10, 1928, the daughter of Bernard and Emma (nee Stark) Landry in Milwaukee, where she was also raised and graduated from Bay View High School.
After graduation, she worked at the Palace Theater in Milwau-kee, where she met Robert Grady, whom she dedicated her love and life to as his wife.
After marriage, the couple began a family of their own.
Robert became a police officer, and Millie worked for several years as a crossing guard.
Bob and Millie went on to open Town Pride Custard Stand on 61st and Villard and later owned and operated Grady’s Pine Manor on Teutonia and Calumet.
They eventually bought Hillcrest Motel on Highways 33 and P.
Millie loved cross-stitching, crossword puzzles and staying current on political issues.
Above all, Millie most enjoyed spending her free time with her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
She will be missed by her children, Kathy (Ben) Pies of West Bend, Mary (Paul) Koceja of Milwaukee, Bob (Cindy) Grady of Horicon and Tim Grady of Menomonee Falls; her nine grandchildren; 10 great-grandchildren; a sister and brother-in-law, Dorothy (Chuck) Gunderson of Kentucky; two sisters-in-law, Rosemary Landry of Milwaukee and Yvonne Wright of Milwau-kee; and her very special friends, Sheryl and Mike Elack and family.
She is further survived by many nieces, nephews, other dear relatives and friends.
Millie was preceded in death by her husband, Robert; her parents, Bernard and Emma Landry; her daughter, Patti Tappendorf; and two brothers, Jim and Gerry Landry.
