Mildred "Millie" E. Tamburrino

Mildred "Millie" E. Tamburrino, 88, of Mansfield, Ohio, passed away on Saturday, July 4, 2020. She was born on June 18, 1932 to William and Christine (Roberts) McNeely.

Millie loved spending time with family and cherished every moment. As the entire family remained close, she enjoyed having them over every Sunday to share a big meal together as well as going to family reunions. Millie's grandchildren, however, held a special place in her heart as they were her pride and joy. She always made sure to be involved and attend every event for them. In her spare time, Millie liked to do crossword puzzles, read, knit and sew. She also liked to watch sports and soap operas.

Millie is survived by her children, Randy (Rai Lynn) Tamburrino, Rick (Penny) Tamburrino, Ron (Lee Ann) Tamburrino and Robin Lyons; grandchildren, Carrie (John) Fanello, Kelly (Aaron) Royster, Heather (Abel Rodriguez) Tamburrino, Hollie (Matt) Brenner, Kevin (Erin) Tamburrino, Kara (Devin) Ohl, Serena, John Michael, Nicholas, Robert, Mary Rose, and Angelo Tamburrino, Brittany (Justin) Curry and Courtney Lyons; step-grandchildren, Ryan (Dan) Albers, Ross (Ashley) Lierseman and Rachael Lierseman; great-grandchildren, Emma Guest, Brady Guest, Andrew Fanello, Anthony Fanello, Gabe Brenner, Kenley Brenner, Aubrey Ohl, Haden Ohl, Grady Tamburrino and Jordan Lyons; step-grandchildren, Rylan and Cole Royster, Abby, Maddie, Noah and Joel Albers, Brynley, Britton, Briggs and Miles Lierseman, Sophie Curry and Laykin Curry; sisters-in-law, Niki McNeely and Carol McNeely; brother-in-law, Ray Thoman; and numerous cousins, nieces and nephews.
