Mildred “Millie” Jean Straw  of Clinton, passed away peacefully on Sunday, April 26, 2020 In Clinton, IN at the age of 75.
She was born in Gary, Indiana on October 6, 1944, to Marjorie (Snowberry) Russell and James Henry Russell.  She graduated from Tollestone High School in 1962 and moved to Clinton a few years later.  She met and married Donald Straw in November of 1969.
She was preceded in death by her parents, sister Susie Maesch and her brother John Russsell.
Survivors include her husband of 51 years; her sons, Tony (Tina) Becke, Eric (Robin) Straw, and Chris (Crissy) Straw; grandsons, Jacob Straw, Zach Shannon, Ryan and Nick Straw.  She also leaves behind her siblings, Judy Kish, Dorothy Russell, James “Hank” Russell,  Sam Russell, and Joe Russell.  Millie is also survived by several nieces, nephews, and cousins.
Millie was gifted with a wonderful sense of humor that was mixed with sarcasm and the ability to quote Seinfeld seamlessly during any occasion.  These traits and many others were passed down to her children, along with a laugh that was undeniable.  Millie had many good friends and important people in her life , but the best moments on Earth were spent with her family.  She was a blessed and humbled mother and Nana ,who enjoyed spending time with  her little cutie pies.  Millie will be missed as much as she was loved.
Visitation will be held on Thursday, April 30, 2020 from 10 am until 1 pm with funeral services at 1 pm.  Pastor Steve Vitaniemi  will officiate.  Cremation will follow.
