Mildred Marie Sampson, “Millie,” of Gettysburg, age 82, died on Nov. 15, 2020, in York, Pa.

Millie is survived by her son, Ken Sampson and his wife Sharon Pitt; son Doug Sampson and his wife Stephanie; five grandsons, Matt, Tim, Bryce, Ben and Patrick; her beloved sister Judy Meyers; and sister-in-law Sue Meyers.

Born in Washington, D.C., she graduated from Northwestern High School and then the University of Maryland Baltimore County dental hygiene program. She supported her two growing sons as a dental hygienist. She eventually transitioned to working at various federal agencies until her retirement in 2003.
