Mildred (Millie) Loebsack Thomas, age 81, of Virginia Beach, VA passed away on Jan.2, 2017, surrounded by loved ones.
Born on July 20, 1935 to Mildred East and Harold Loebsack, Millie was raised in Norfolk, VA. For a brief period of time, during early adulthood, she lived in Cleveland, OH where she worked at the telephone co., a job she loved and often spoke of.
Mille was a devoted and loving mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. Mille loved to cook and many Thanksgivings were spent at her house with family and friends. She was also an avid gardener and mowed her own lawn into her eighties. Her hobbies included travel, watching old movies, and reading. One of her proudest accomplishments was writing a novel, that surely will be published one day.
Millie was the beloved wife of the late Lawrence (Larry) Thomas, devoted mother of Rona Block & Husband Ronnie, Medina Kirkwood, and Colleen Austin & her late husband Chester, loving Grandmommy to Barton, Korey, Bridget, Brent, Zach & Travis, Great-Grandmother (GG) to Walker, Kye, Natalie & Luella. She also leaves behind her dear cousins Mitzi & DeeDee.
Mille acquired several very close and loving friends later in life and they were part of the reason she was always busy and having a great time. She was known for her feisty, yet good sense of humor and will be greatly missed by all who spent time with her.
Family and friends will gather at Altmeyer Funeral Home, 5792 Greenwich Rd., Virginia Beach, VA on Sunday, Jan. 13, 2017 at 5:00 pm for a memorial service celebrating her life.
