Linda Lee Mills

October 14, 1950 ~ October 29, 2021 (age 71)


Linda L. Mills, 71, passed away peacefully in her home on Friday, October 29, 2021. 
She was born October 14, 1950, in Rochester, Indiana, the daughter of Leroy, Jr. and Margaret (Zartman) Mills.
Linda graduated from North Miami High School in 1969 and attended Indiana University in pursuit of becoming a nurse, receiving her Bachelors Degree in 1973 and her Masters in 1986. She received her nursing license in 1973 and proudly served many people for over 30 years in her time at University Hospital in Indianapolis. She was a longtime member of the American Society of Peri-Anesthesia Nurses, serving as a reviewer of programs for continuing education.
In retirement, Linda enjoyed getting together with friends and family, traveling, helping plan high school and family reunions, baking, and tending to her beautiful flowers. She also spent time assisting on her neighborhood homeowners association.
One of Linda’s favorite activities was playing Sudoku. She also cherished baking Christmas cookies with her sister and niece each year, a way of remembering her mother.
Her niece and nephew fondly remember Friday Night Pizza with Aunt Linda while growing up and the humorous cards they would send each other in the mail.
Linda often traveled to the Mills Family Farm where she grew up. The farm had always been a peaceful place for Linda. It is where her love of pigs and cats started. She maintained a wide collection of pig figurines that decorated the mantle in her home.
Linda was a strong-willed, matter-of-fact woman with a soft heart and will be missed immensely by those who loved her.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Leroy and Margaret Mills and her brother, Curt Mills.
Her legacy will be cherished by her sister, Jan (Jim) Pike of Indianapolis; brother, Kent Mills of Denver;  sister-in-law, Barbara Mills of Macy; her nieces, Jessie Pike of Indianapolis and Myranda (Jimmie) Kruschinska of Portland, Oregon; and nephews, Adam Pike of Indianapolis and Nathan (Abigale) Vandermark of West Lafayette.
Visitation will be held at McClain Funeral Home in Denver, Indiana on Thursday, November 4, 2021, from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. Funeral will immediately follow visitation.  Burial will follow in Greenlawn Cemetery, Mexico.  The family asks that all guests wear masks inside the funeral home.
