Mildred Mary Oliver

October 16, 1930 — December 16, 2023

Boulder

Mildred Mary Oliver (Mangione), 93, of Boulder, CO passed away peacefully on Saturday, December 16, 2023, with her daughter at her bedside. A private family memorial mass is scheduled in January 2024 at Sacred Heart of Mary Church, 6739 S. Boulder Road, Boulder, CO. Millie was born on October 16, 1930, as Carmela Mangione in Trenton, NJ. As a high school student, she took it upon herself to legally change her name to Mildred Mary Mangione. Thus, she forever became known as “Millie” by all her family and friends. She was the youngest of 5 children born to Madalena (Buttice) and Vincenzo Mangione of Sicily, Italy. Her parents and 3 siblings, Philip, Anna (Ballone), and Connie (Rue) immigrated through Ellis Island to Trenton, N.J. Her oldest sister Rosella (Spoto) remained in Sicily and Millie was the only child to be born in the U.S. On April 26, 1953, Millie married William Howard Oliver in Trenton, N.J. They had 2 children, Barbara Ann Tschoepe (Richard) of Boulder and William H. Oliver, Jr. (Karen) of Longmont. Millie and her husband, Bill, raised their family in Somers Point, N.J. She supported her family’s love for the Jersey shore beaches (although ironically never learned to swim), and enjoyed bowling, golfing, cooking Italian style, knitting, and the many large family gatherings on Sundays, birthdays, and holidays back in Trenton N.J. Millie had an unconditional love of family and offered to help others whenever possible. She moved to Boulder, CO in 2014 to live with her daughter and to be closer to her 8 grandchildren: Alison (Justin), Megan (Drew), Jennifer (Freeborn), Billy (Tess), Kirk (Ashley), Emily, Sam & Lydia along with great-grandchildren: Quinn, Theo, Eden, Zion, and a future Baby Girl expected in April 2024. Millie was an active member of the Lafayette Senior Center where she loved playing cards with her friends. Still having Atlantic City in her blood, she also enjoyed spending an afternoon at the Black Hawk casinos. Millie was active up to the very end. She walked one-half mile each day, never said no to a luncheon outing, or stayed up late to play cards with her grandchildren. She will be deeply missed by her many friends, family, and daytime buddy, Jake, their dog. Millie was preceded in death by her parents, siblings, husband, and son. Instead of flowers, the family asks that donations be sent in Millie’s name to the Sister Carmen Community Center in Lafayette, Colorado at sistercarmen.org.
