Mildred "Millie" L. Masters

December 9, 1929 ~ January 6, 2022 (age 92)


Mildred “Millie” Overholt Masters, 92, passed into eternal life with the Lord on Thursday, January 6, 2022 at home.  Millie was born December 9, 1929 in Bemidgi, Minnesota, the 5th of 9 children born to Charles Franklin Morford (1890-1943) and Dorothy Louise (Harris) Morford (1905-1992).

She married Ray Overholt on May 26, 1956. Ray and Millie were converted to Christ not long after that and began a traveling music and preaching evangelistic ministry that lasted 48 years. Ray preached the Gospel and they sang songs they wrote as a trio with son Ron. Many people were converted to Christ during this time. Ray passed on September 14, 2008.

On September 26, 2009, Millie married Ted Masters, and they enjoyed 12 years together, singing gospel music and traveling together. Ted cared for Millie in their home during her last days. He survives.

Millie’s life was certainly one of service to others. She loved to be with her family, and provided child care for her grandchildren, great grandchildren and her great, great grandchildren. She had many friends and loved to entertain them in her home.

Millie would tell you the greatest decision she ever made was giving her life to the Lord. Her song, “Nothing Touches me Quite Like Calvary” was her testimony. Her later years were spent attending her beloved Family Altar Chapel with Ted.

Millie is survived by her husband Ted Masters of Battle Creek, son Ron (Margaret) Overholt of Grand Rapids, Sue (Dave) Vander Heide of Holland, Bev Reidel of Battle Creek, and Keith (Ellen) Masters of Battle Creek. Grandchildren Rebecca (Travis) Davis, Tony Overholt, and Ronald (Melissa) Gorman.

Great Grandchildren Lindsey Davis Marks and Troy Davis, Brittney Henning, Madison Overholt, and Kenzi and Lainey Gorman. Millie also leaves behind 21 great grandchildren and great, great, grandchildren.
