Millie was born on June 11, 1927, the daughter of Leo and Hildagard (Ohlinger) Apfelbeck in Colby. She attended grade school in the town of Hull. Millie helped on the family farm as a young child. Times were tough when she was young so she traveled to Chicago with her sister as a teenager and they got jobs as housekeepers until World War II started, then she worked in a plant assembling radios. They would come home to help on the farm often. When she was 18, she met her husband at a local dance, at home in Wisconsin.

Millie was joined in marriage to Raymond Juedes on June 8, 1948 at St. Mary's Catholic Church in Colby, at the age of 21. Raymond and Mildred owned and operated a farm in the town of Little Black. Millie had a beautiful flower and vegetable garden on the farm which she enjoyed taking care of, along with raising chickens and cows. Upon retiring, Millie and Ray moved to Colby and Millie worked at Mr. B's restaurant in Abbotsford bussing tables.

Millie enjoyed gardening, cooking, painting ceramics, sewing, cross stitch, crocheting, embroidery, playing bingo, doing word searches and watching the Green Bay Packers on television.

Millie was a member of the Bruckerville Homemakers Club and Sacred Heart Catholic Order of Foresters in Stetsonville.

Millie is survived by her children, Ronald (Roberta) Juedes of Medford, Sally (Jim) Weinfurter of Pittsville, Roger (Rita) Juedes of Stetsonville, Robert Juedes of Eau Claire, Susan Juedes of New Hope, Minn., Russell (Sharon) Juedes of Stetsonville, Marlene (William) Juedes of Basel, Switzerland, Patsy (Brian) Juedes-Fulk of Scottsbluff, Neb., Richard (Karen) Juedes of Wausau and Margaret (Greg) Lauderdale of Bloomington, Minn.; 19 grandchildren; 11 great-grandchildren; sisters, Monica Biter of New Auburn and Genny (Alvin) Abegglen of Stetsonville; and a brother, John (Wanda) Apfelbeck of Peck, Idaho. She is further survived by her sisters-in-law, Elaine Tessmer of Dorchester and Audrey Juedes of Abbotsford.

Millie was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Raymond on June 14, 2011; siblings, Francis Apfelbeck, Mary Butencheon, Stella Dobner, Joseph Apfelbeck (in infancy), Adeline Dahlke, Pearl Nosbisch, Theresa Rindt and Leo Apfelbeck Jr.
