Mills, Dora Rose "Dodie"

Aug. 10, 1948

Dora R. (Dodie) Mills, 66, of Port Charlotte, Florida went home to be with her Lord on July 19, 2015. Originally from Underhill, Vermont, she graduated from Essex High School in 1966 and then received her nursing degree from Fanny Allen School of Nursing. She worked at the Mary Fletcher and DeGosbrian hospitals and was most fulfilled by her work with children in pediatrics care. She also worked for many years at IBM in Essex Junction, before moving to Florida about 30 years ago.

Dodie loved the beaches in Florida and the endless opportunities to play golf with friends. She lived with her mother Grace for many years and worked for Fox Electronics in Ft. Myers as well as for several physicians in Port Charlotte. Once she retired, she devoted her time to her family, her dogs and enjoying the Florida lifestyle, but she never lost touch with her Vermont roots and her many friends there. One of her greatest joys was to follow her brother Dywer's musical career; she loved to dance and was the life of the party!

Dodie is pre-deceased by her father and mother, Merton D. and Grace A. Mills of Underhill, long time owners of the Riverside Store and campground. She is survived by her brother Dwyer M. Mills, his wife Frances, cousin Peter Trono and Aunt Frances Trono.

Services will be handled by LaVigne Funeral Home and Cremation Services in Winooski, Vermont. The dates and times are forthcoming. In lieu of flowers the family requests that donations be made in her remembrance, to the Humane Society, SPCA or the American Heart Association. Online condolences can be left for the family at
