Millie worked at Tung-Sol as well as the former Two Guys Department Store both in Newark, NJ. She was known for her laugh, and once while getting her haircut at a salon she and the staff were laughing so hard that everyone in the place began laughing. Mildred had the nerve to call out from the third row of a Frank Sinatra concert for him to “Please Sing My Way”. Mr. Sinatra said he didn’t want to sing that son, but he finally gave in and sang the song for Millie.
Mildred was the youngest of six siblings, being predeceased by her sisters Marie (Mary) Christianziani, Esperanza (Essie) Korley, Gloria Cangiano and her brother Jordan Besosa. Millie leaves behind her brother Nelson Besosa, her three children Doreen Savarese, Donna Ramos and Don Cole.
