Mildred Evelyn “Millie” Hampton went to be with her Savior Thursday, September 15, 2022, at her residence in Oregon, after being on this earth for 98 years.
Millie was born October 12, 1923 in Merkel to Nathan Columbus and Annie Mae Dunn Joyner. She lived in Dudley much of her young life.

She spent her long life caring for others in many ways, taking care of her children, the elderly, and members of her church congregation and the community. Her bright, sweet spirit was showered on everyone she came in contact with. Even when times were tough, she always found a reason to smile.
