Millie Wyant passed away peacefully at her home on March 8, 2023 at the age of 96. She was born in Indianapolis, Indiana on August 28, 1926 to Carl and Mabel Alexander and was the eldest of 6 siblings. Family was important to Millie. She married Ralph Wyant in 1947. They were married for 60 years and raised 3 boys.
Millie’s hobbies and interests included family, gardening, and hiking. She started hiking in her mid-60’s and fell in love with the Grand Canyon, hiking it many times all the way up to age 88. She hiked all the way to the bottom and back out on 3 occasions, the last time at age 76. She also went on several multi-day backpacking trips, including 8-day and 10-day trips in California’s Sierra Nevada mountains.
Millie loved gardening and had a special place that she called her “secret garden”. Plants flourished there under her care. She had a strong faith and loved the Lord. She enjoyed attending church and bible studies. She loved life and people with all her heart, was treasured by her family and friends and will be greatly missed.
