Queen was joined in holy matrimony to James Milledge in 1951. She was a very loving and devoted wife, mother and grandmother who dedicated her life to her family. She was a member of the Elite social club where she enjoyed gathering with her friends for good food and conversation while playing pokeno on friday nights. She was an excellent cook and loved having Sunday dinner at her home with her family. She welcomed everyone whether you were family or not. She loved her friends and church members and took the time to visit, send cards and/or cook a meal for them whenever she could. If you were down, worried or dismayed about anything, her famous words would be to "just pray about it." Queen loved her family and her friends but most of all she loved God.
