She was Thomas Chancellor and Etta Mae Chancellor’s youngest child of 17. Her family lived in the old West End (as she called it), but it’s officially named Kenyon Barr. She and her family resided at 801 Kenyon. The brownstone (her father owned) set on the corner of Kenyon and Linn. This was the house of love! Her older siblings and their spouses, and other relatives would meet, (as Millie said) “Every day God gave them at momma’s house.” Millie would complain, because as the youngest, she had to clean up behind everyone. She would say, “why don’t ya’ll go home and dirty up your own houses.” Her older sisters often referred to her as “Momma’s perfect child who could do no wrong.” Millie was raised Catholic and went to Catholic schools. She attended St. Anthony School through the eight grade and went to Our Lady of Mercy three years out of the four years of high school. After the loss of her father, she attended Withrow for one year in the 10th grade. She accepted the teachings of the Catholic faith. She shared her faith with others. Her Christian influence runs deep in her immediate and extended family members. She lived her faith! It was shown through her love, service, and encouragement she had for others. She was not a respecter of persons. She greeted kindly (literally) the drunkard who perhaps was lying on the street as she would the principle at college. She would often say, “we are all God’s children.” She met her husband, Robert Springs (Bobby) at the age of 15. They married a few years later and was blessed with each other for 69 years. From their union, they had seven beautiful children: Sabrina, Robert, Lonnie, Demetrius, Sharon, Rochelle, and Latonya. Bobby described the young Millie as built with a very small waist, pretty and sassy. She was never scared to speak her mind. Bobby’s family loved Millie and always treated her with kindness. Millie had many interests. She was a care giver at heart and worked for many years as a nurse assistant. When her children were small, she oversaw the summer programs through the Park Board and arranged for the kids who played at the Burnet Tot Lot to go on trips to Kings Island and other places. She worked at Xavier University as a cook in later years before getting injured on the job. Millie loved music and dancing, and boy could she “cut a rug.” She loved family and was the nucleus to her children, grandchildren, nieces, and nephews. She loved Bingo. She loved to travel and traveled as far as Spain and Portugal. Millie had many good friends. She loved talking and was a social butterfly, and never met a stranger. Millie reaped what she sowed and that was love. During her terminal illness, she had many family members attending to her around the clock. There were first shift family members, second shift family members, third shift family members and in-between shift family members willingly assisting her in her time of need. Loving Millie has always been easy because she showed everyone how easy it is to love. Millie’s parents and all her siblings preceded her in death. Millie departed this life on October 12, 2021, at 8:30 am. She leaves to mourn: her husband, Bobby Springs; seven children: Sabrina, Robert (Venetia), Lonnie (Margo), Demetrius, Sharon, Rochelle (Gregory), and Latonya (Clinton); eight grandchildren: Jawana, Tambi, Jamall, Robbie, Ramone, Brittny, Ryan, and Angel; 11 great-grandchildren: JaVonna, Tyanna, Gregory, Jakai, Jea’Lynn, Neahoman, Robert IV, Ra’Nea, TiMil, Ryland, and Tahri, and a great-great grandson: Rico; stepchildren, nieces and nephews and a host of other relatives.
