Mildred Fortune, 94
PORTLAND - Mildred Fortune, 94, was born July 6, 1922, in Boston, Mass., to Richard Fortune Sr. and Janet Gill Fortune, and passed away on Feb. 3, 2017, in Portland.
For many years, Millie and co-workers Lynda Jean MacDonald and Colleen Pollard worked at Goodwill Industries, where they forged lifelong friendships.
Millie was the longest-residing resident at Franklin Towers in Portland, where she was feted at a party on Sept. 1, 2015. She was a fiercely independent woman who will be missed by the family of residents at Franklin Towers.
Her death was three days after Lynda MacDonald's, enabling us to say that Elvis, Lynda, and Millie have now, finally, left the building.
