Berry, Jr. both of Everett, William L. Berry & his late wife Maryalice of Uxbridge, & the late Stephen J. Berry, who died in June of 1974.  She also leaves her dear twin sister, Lee Woodworth, of Willimantic, CT.  She is also lovingly survived by her grandson, Andrew Forget of Uxbridge, & her faithful friends, Nancy Hocter of Middleton, Lucy Hunter, & Nino Nittolo both of Revere, & many nieces & nephews.  Millie enjoyed the role of “mentor” to many nursing students, often resulting in continued life-long relationships.  She was also the wife of the late George R. Berry, Sr., who died in December of 2003.  Interment will be in the family lot at Woodlawn Cemetery, Everett.  In lieu of flowers, remembrances may be made to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, P.O.
