May 14, 1921 — August 26, 2018
Millie was called home Sunday, Aug. 26 2018, surrounded by her loving family.
She was born May 14, 1921 to Raymond and Emma Crosier of West Hebron, as one of seven children. Millie graduated from Salem Washington Academy, and then left to attend school in Syracuse. She graduated with honors from the Madam Minerva Beauty Academy in 1940. She then moved to Glens Falls, where she worked as a hairdresser for well over fifty years, but she was always proud of her “country” upbringing.
The greatest loves in life were her husband Donald West, her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and her family (whom affectionately called her “Muler,” due to her strong-willed nature). She also enjoyed spending time with her family on Loon Lake, and she made it a special place for all who knew her.
Millie was unwaveringly devoted to her faith and living life according to the principles set forth in the Bible. She was an active member of the First Baptist Church of Glens Falls for over seventy five years, and was well-known for her wonderful recipes and dishes — especially her molasses cookies and homemade pies. She was always proud that they would be the first to go at any church bake sale, and she happily responded to the name “Cookie Lady.”
She is predeceased by her parents, her husband Don, and six siblings.
Left to cherish her memory are her children W. Scott West (Kathy), John C. West (Donna), and Mary West-Hannigan (Thomas); her grandchildren Carl West, Adam West (Keri), Jeremy West (Michele), Michael West, Nathan West (Amanda), Julie Crannell, Sara Crannell, and Susan Crannell. She is also survived by eight great-grandchildren, many nieces, nephews, and cousins, and her cat Mahari (AKA “Whiskers”).
Funeral services will be conducted 11:00 a.m., Thursday, Aug. 30, at the First Baptist Church of Glens Falls, Maple Street, Glens Falls.
Burial will follow at Glens Falls Cemetery.
Calling hours are scheduled from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. Wednesday, Aug.29 at the Regan Denny Stafford Funeral Home, 53 Quaker Rd, Queensbury.
