She is preceded by her husband Paul Orlan who passed in 2015 and her youngest sister Linda Abrahamson who died in 2019. Millie was well known for her joie de vivre, sense of humor, and her love of fashion, classical music, opera, and dance. Most recently she enjoyed being with her entire family to celebrate the marriage of Josh and Cara Orlan, less than a week before her passing. Born in Montreal, Canada, Millie and Paul moved to Florida in 1977 to build a life with their family. She was always proud to support Holocaust education initiatives with her husband Paul and watch her children and grandchildren contribute to important community work and meaningful causes that help improve the lives of others. Millie is now in the arms of her forever love, her beloved husband Paul. May she forever rest peacefully.
