He entered this world on March 4, 1993, which was his due date. It is also the last time he agreed to follow directions set by someone else. He was a beautiful, vivacious energy with an infectious light that has touched so many lives.  Krys was the kind of person who people fell in love with. From the moment he was born, he was able to capture the hearts of others just by giving them a look and a smile. He cared about people, loved animals and wanted to be the best he could be.

Lorraine was born on October 3, 1927, in Wisconsin – the daughter of Hector and Irene Fraser. After completing high school, Lorraine attended The Art Institute in Milwaukee.  On February 17, 1951, Lorraine married Walter James Millis; they had five children and were together until Walter passed away in December of 2011.  Her most cherished times were spent with her husband whom she adored, their cats and Pattie their dog.  Lorraine was in her element when she could be outdoors working in her flower gardens, but nothing could compare with her and Walter’s love of camping. She would be packed and ready to go at even the suggestion of a camping trip.  She also loved to have her kids, grandkids, and great-grandchildren come to visit.
