With family present, Mildred (Millie) Mance, age 89, entered peacefully into the presence of her Lord on the morning of May 11, 2019. Beloved wife of the late George W. Mance (Bill), Millie was one of 10 children born to the late Frank and Margaret Kozain of Harrison City, PA.
Millie quietly centered her life around loving and caring for her family and serving her Lord as a pianist and Sunday School teacher At an early age, she received God’s gracious gift of salvation; the resulting life transformation that comes from knowing Jesus Christ was evidenced in who she was and in her sweet smile.
Until her health began to fail, she and Bill loved to travel. Her great loves were the ocean and the mountains where they often spent time with family. In April 2008, an accident claimed Bill’s life; her injuries left her unable to live alone. In an instant, she lost her husband, health and home. This began moves to be near family, first to Chambersburg, then Allentown. Recent years were especially difficult as health issues worsened. Even so, her faith remained steadfast. God’s grace and His Word renewed hope until finally her long struggle was over. We rejoice that she will ever be with her Lord.
Survived by children, Cheryl Moroz (Dave) of Allentown, PA; William Mance (Cricket) of Round Rock, TX; 4 grandchildren, Melanie, Charles, Erin, Jon; 7 great grandchildren, and 2 great great grandsons. Also survived by one sister, Sara Greager of Greensburg, PA; a brother, Howard Kozain (Sophia) of Greencastle, PA, and many dearly loved brother and sister-in-laws, nieces, and nephews.
Predeceased by two sisters, Margaret Vasil, Lillian Palmer, five brothers, Ralph, Frank, Robert, Carl, James, granddaughter, Melissa Mance, and dearly loved sister and brother-in-laws.
