Obituary for Edith McMillan

Edith  McMillan
Edith Aileen McMillan passed away peacefully on Thursday, March 29, 2017 at Windcrest Rehabilitation and Nursing Center in Abilene, Texas.

Edith was born August 23, 1926 in Hamlin, Texas; the daughter of Loreta Lawrence and Jerry Graves McClaran. The family moved to Winters, Texas where Edith attended Winters High School. In high school she was a cheerleader and a member of the “Gold Diggers Club”. In Winters, on a blind date, she met Wilburn “Bo” McMillan. It was love at first sight, and they were married 6 months later on May 30, 1946. In 1950, the couple moved to Abilene, Texas where Bo worked as a photographer. After her children were in school, Edith entered the business world working for Senter Real Estate and Insurance of Abilene. In 1965, Bo bought Rodden’s Studio and in 1971 Edith left the insurance world to work with Bo to create a successful photography business. They worked together at Rodden’s Studio until they retired in 1980. They then moved to Cisco, Texas where they bought a farm and raised bountiful crops of vegetables which they joyfully shared with friends and family. Edith and Bo were married for 57 blissful years.

Edith was preceded in death by her parents, her loving husband Bo McMillan in 2003, a son James Wilburn McMillan, her granddaughter Jennifer Joi Cole, a sister Jerrye Stoute, and brother John McClaran.
