Mrs. Iona McMillan ended her earthly journey and began her heavenly walk on Wednesday, February 08, 2017 after her earthly vessel succumbed to her glorious new body prepared by Christ.

Iona (affectionately known as "Babe" to all who knew and loved her) was born in Olar SC.  She was the fifth of nine children born to the late Mary Hazel Orr Carter and Burns Carter. Three of her sibling were there to greet her in glory: Helen Ford, Shirley Carter, and Nathaniel Carter.

Iona was a very devoted and loving mother and wife. Her husband, Thomas Laurie McMillan along with Marilyn, the third of their eight loving children.

God blessed that union with, were also a part of her welcoming committee on last Wednesday evening in heaven. What a glorious reunion that must have been!!

Iona was a faithful and devoted Christian. Her commitment to God was strong and her faith in Him was evident by the way she always stood on the promises of God, never wavering, never afraid to say what she felt the Lord wanted her to say; to her children, grandchildren, other family members and all those she met in life. She was a dedicated member of the William Chapel Church Family where she, for many years served as the head of the Kitchen Ministry, sang in the Senior Choir, and a member of the Missionary Society and the Cemetery Committee.

We are so sorry about the death of your loved one. This is truly a difficult time, but our Heavenly Father gives us comfort. He promises at Revelation 21:4 to put an end to tears, pain, and death. We hope that your family is comforted by this promise as much as our family has in the past. Take care.
