Lera Ernestine “Tine” Mills, age 75, passed away on Thursday, July 21, 2022. The native of Okeechobee FL lived most of her life in Florida before moving to Georgia in 2008. She was a homemaker and was devoted to her family. Of all the joy in her life, spending time with her grandkids was the greatest blessing. In her free time, she loved to travel.

She is preceded in death by her parents, George Mills and Betty Inez Altman Mills and a sister, Cheryl Woodson.
