Obituary for Eleanor May Mills

Eleanor May McKenzie was one of several children born on August 2, 1942 in Panama City, Panama to Clarence & Gladys McKenzie (both deceased). Her siblings were Alfredo (Deceased), Samuel, Ferdinand (Deceased), George, Marva and Vilma. She grew up in Paraiso, former Canal Zone.

Eleanor attended IPA (Instituto Panamericano) for one semester – long enough to meet Hector Mills whom became her sweetheart. She transferred to and graduated from Paraiso High School on the former Canal Zone. After graduating High School she traveled to the United States to attend Roosevelt University in Chicago, IL all the while her relationship with Hector continued to blossom. In 1964 she returned to Panama to wed Hector Mills at St. Paul’s Church. They were sweethearts for 61 years and married for 54. The couple relocated to Brooklyn, New York and were blessed with a daughter Bernadette Marie Mills.

Eleanor pursued and completed her BSN (Bachelor of Nursing Degree) at St. Joseph’s College in Brooklyn, NY. The family then relocated to Far Rockaway, Queens where she had a successful career as an RN (Registered Nurse) at Peninsula General Hospital. Her career in nursing led her and Hector to Ocala, FL where she became a Home Healthcare Professional eventually completing her Master’s Degree in Nutrition at Clayton College. Because of her nurturing spirit, she served as counselor, mother, sister, friend and confidant to family and friends. She was a kind loving angel sent to us by God. Her favorite saying was “I am good and am taking it one day at a time.”

Eleanor will be sadly missed by her husband, Hector Mills, daughter, Bernadette Mills, brothers, Samuel McKenzie and George Lancelot McKenzie (Alicia), sisters, Marva Sobers (Eustace) and Vilma Wilson; brothers-in-law, Stanley Mills (Carmen) and Alberto Mills (Sonia), sisters-in-law, Yvonne Lovell and Janette Mills Belgrave and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and many, many friends.
