Mrs. Mildred "Millie" Lovett Yarbrough, 93 of Gainesville passed away Friday June 22, 2018.
Born in Double Springs, Alabama, Mrs. Yarbrough had lived in Gainesville for 61 years. She was the daughter of the late McK Lovett and Docia Shaddix Lovett, she was a homemaker and a member of the Gainesville First United Methodist Church.
Millie loved her family, friends, church, cooking, entertaining, and music of all kinds. Her gift was the ability to make you feel like you were the most important person in the room. She encouraged and supported you through anything. She volunteered with the Northeast Georgia Medical Center Auxillary and drove for Meals on Wheels until she was 88. She lived a genuine life with kindness as her focus. Our sweet Mamoo left a handprint on many lives reminding us to always put others first.
