Millicent June Pils

LOCKPORT — Millicent June Pils, age 87, of Ransomville, passed away at Briody Health Care Facility on March 22, 2013.  She was born in Niagara Falls, NY on June 5, 1925, daughter of the late Carl and Isabella Schultz. June graduated salutatorian, class of 1941 from Youngstown, (Red Brick School), High School, at age 15. During the war she worked for Moore Business Forms. She married Donald Pils and left the workplace to raise a family. Later she became a part owner of Lakeside Market in Wilson, NY, until retiring in 1982. In retirement she became a Cornell Cooperative Extension Master Gardener and made many friends working at Goodman's Farm Market making flower pots and advising customers. When the weather turned cold, she turned to her needlework, crocheting  and mastered quilting, including the unique "Cathedral Window" design. Her extensive travel took her throughout Europe. She walked on the glacier in Alaska, climbed the Acropolis, and rode the Grande Canal in Venice.

June is survived by her sons, Terry (Mickey) Pils, Corry (Velma Hooker) Pils; brother, Carl, "Cam" (Joyce) Schultz and sister-in-law, Judy Schultz; four grandchildren, eight great-grand- children and several nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her brothers, Elmer, "Pete" Schultz and Noel Schultz. She is fondly remembered by her dear friend, Orma Ullrich Lee of Terry, MS.

Friends are invited to attend a memorial service at 11:00 AM Saturday, April 20, at St. Paul's Lutheran Church, 220 Young St., Wilson, NY. All are welcomed to share their memories over lunch immediately following. June gifted her body to the UB School of Medicine. In lieu of flowers, memorials to the Ransomville Free Library are appreciated.
