She was the youngest and last remaining sibling of 10 brothers and sisters. She was the widow of Thomas (Tom) W. Lemond and was retired from a long career with the S.C. Tax Commission.

Brice of Ocean Springs, MS; grandsons Franklin (Amy), Brian (Candace), Casey (Mallory), and David (Morgan); great grandchildren Madison, Jay, Will, Claire, and Bear, and her special great nephew Paul.
Millie was a wonderful and loving mother, grandmother and caring matriarch of the Lemond and Waites families. She thoroughly enjoyed her family and friends and often spoke of the fun times she had with her friends at the tax commission. She was loved and admired by all and will be missed by everyone who knew her.
