Mary Hiroko Mills

Mary Hiroko Mills

Mary Hiroko Mills was born January 23, 1936 in Othello WA. She graduated from Othello High School and attended Edison Technical Institute.

Mary always had a beautiful radiant smile.  She loved life and was extremely dedicated to her children and husband.

Mary met the love of her life Michael Mills while working at People’s Bank in Othello, WA.  Michael was stationed there in the Air Force.  The family moved to Japan and California with the military but later settled in Seattle.

Mary was a stay at home mom while the children were young.  She was always supportive of her children never missing a sporting event or activity.

In the 1970’s the couple purchased their first music store and grew a successful music business lasting over 40 years. Mary was the corporate office manager for Mills Music Corporation and was known for her sincere interest in her employees and their lives outside of work.

Mary began a 30 year tradition in Bothell’s 4th of July Parade, starting the Mills Music Marching Band for music students which gave kids the opportunity to learn and experience the art of marching in parades at a young age.

She died April 26, 2014 at Kirkland Hospice Center surrounded by loving family.  

In addition to her husband Michael, she is survived by three sons Michael Jr., Mark and Monty and family including grandchildren.

Services will be held on Sunday, May 4, 2014 at 4pm, Bothell Emmanuel Presbyterian Church 19540 104th Ave NE, Bothell.  In lieu of flowers, please send donations to Evergreen Health Hospice in Kirkland.
