Obituary for Milly Lou (Squires) Armstrong

Milly Lou (Squires) Armstrong passed away on April 30, 2018. Born in Hollywood, California, she was the 2nd of five children of Vernon and Nina Squires. Her formative years were spent in California and it wasn't until the onset of World War II that her family migrated north to Oregon.
After high school in McMinnville, Milly worked as a recording clerk at the Yamhill County Courthouse. She met and married the love of her life Colin Armstrong in 1947 and accompanied him to Navy bases from Norfolk, Virginia to Yokohama, Japan. During an unusually long tour of duty in California she owned and operated a children's wear store. Returning to McMinnville in 1971, Milly immediately became active in the community and social circles. She was a member of PEO, TOPS, the YC Historical Society, Friends of the Library and other philanthropic causes. Always an avid bridge player, she truly enjoyed entertaining everyone for any occasion and any reason.
She is survived by her three children; Laura Gay Welliver, Daniel Squires Armstrong and Vernon Douglas Armstrong; four grandchildren, four great-grandsons and all of her siblings. Her beloved husband of nearly 70 years passed away just five months before her.
Funeral services will be held at 1:00pm on Wednesday, May 9th at Macy & Son, with reception following the service and a private interment beside her husband at Evergreen Memorial Park.
