Obituary of Mildred Ruth Sark

Mildred “Millie” Ruth Sark was born to Archie and Martha Chilson in Gary, Indiana on April 4, 1926.  The family welcomed her brother, Paul, born the following year.  Millie passed away on October 10, 2022 at the age of 96. 

Millie married Eugene Sark on June 22, 1944.  He was a carpenter millwright and Millie worked in U.S. Steel Mills, a plastics factory, and in a factory making windshields for airplanes.

After retiring they bought a motorhome and traveled all over the United States, Canada and Tijuana, Mexico.

Millie was a talented seamstress and made all the clothing for herself and Eugene.  Together they also created beautiful glass vases from smashed old car windshields. She also loved playing pinochle. 

Millie was a good friend to many and always had a smile and a great sense of humor. 

Millie was preceded in death by husband, Eugene (2010), her brother (2020) and her nephew.

Her family and friends would like to thank the wonderful and caring staff at Sheldon Park/Merril Gardens nursing home for taking such good care of our beloved Millie.
