Millie was born September 20, 1932, to the late Samuel and Maggie Johnson in Elmore, Oklahoma. She married OJ Lynn on December 30, 1952, in Ft. Worth, Texas. Millie settled into married life and all the responsibilities of caring for her children and running the family home. The family soon moved to Dumas, Texas, where Millie and OJ raised their children, Charlie “Randy,” Ordana, and Judy. After OJ retired, they moved to Lake Texoma and enjoyed an easy life. OJ preceded Millie in death on January 11, 2011. Millie moved to Garden City, Kansas, in 2016 to be closer to her daughter, Judy.
Millie loved traveling and visiting new locales. She was a devout Christian who read her Bible daily and was involved in all aspects of her church. She enjoyed making bread and delivering her homemade bread to her extended church family. Every springtime, Millie looked forward to visiting the New Mexico Children’s Home, where she would bake fresh bread and cookies for each one of the cottages that hosted the foster children. She made it a point to stay and enjoy a meal with each family. Her life centered around church and family.

She is survived by her children, Charlie Lynn and wife Susan; Ordana Barnett; Judy Stewart and husband Scott; grandchildren, Patrick Lynn; Christopher Lynn and wife Melissa; Paige Barnett-Owenmiller and husband Robert; Joshua Stewart; Caleb Stewart and fiancé Jill Danner; two great-grandchildren, Sophie Lynn, and Wesley Lynn; brother Sam Johnson and his wife Ann; and sister Vivian Baer.
