Barbara Millis Obituary, Death – On the 7th of December 2022, at the age of 85, Barbara L. Millis, who resided on Comstock Road, passed away suddenly at her home. She was the daughter of the late Harry and Rosetta Mae (Richards) Skinner. Her birthday was April 25, 1937, and she was born in Shinnston, West Virginia. Shinnston High School is where Barb received her diploma. She was in a small diner in Corinth when she first met her future husband, Fred C. Millis, Sr. They were married on October 3, 1957 in Shinnston, West Virginia, which was three months after their first meeting. Over the course of sixty years, the couple has made their home on Comstock Road.
When Barb was younger, she began her working career in a number of different factories. After working for a short time at a diner in Corinth, she went on to open and run Bobbie Lou’s Pizza in South Corinth for a period of ten years. Between the decades of the 1960s and the 1980s, she was an engaged participant at the Corinth Free Methodist Church. Although Barb enjoyed playing the organ, crocheting, and other crafts, as well as decorating her home, particularly for the holidays, her true passion was cooking for her family and spending time with them.
She was preceded in death by her five siblings as well as her parents: Mary Farrell, Ruth Frazier, Paul William “Bill” Skinner, Lacy “Ted” Skinner, and Harry Clifford Skinner Jr.
In addition to her devoted husband, Fred Millis, she is survived by her four children and their spouses: Fred Millis Jr. (Sue) of Corinth, Clifford Millis (Sheila) of Greenfield, Becky Brady of Corinth, and Jennifer Svoboda (Mike) of Indian Lake; one sister, Kathryn Millington (Tom) of Corinth; six grandchildren: Jon Brady, Sarah Brady, Katelyn Svoboda, Dannen Svo
At a later date that will be announced, there will be a celebration of Barb’s life held at the Corinth Free Methodist Church, which is located at 20 Hamilton Ave in Corinth.
The family would like to express their gratitude to the Town of Corinth Emergency Medical Services and the Saratoga County Sheriff’s Department for the speed with which they responded and the professionalism they displayed toward the family. In lieu of traditional floral tributes, the family requests that memorial contributions be made to the Corinth Free Methodist Church, which can be found at 20 Hamilton Avenue, Corinth, New York 12822.
