Obituary

Amelia "Millie" Sicard

Amelia "Millie" Sicard, who was well known as a cashier at the Sharon Heights Safeway for many years, died May 23 in Kent, Washington. Ms. Sicard moved to Kent in 2008 to live with her sister, Dorothy Schubert, after residing in Menlo Park for many years. She was 88.

Ms. Sicard was born in Napoleon, North Dakota, one of 12 children. She married Melvin Sicard and lived in Menlo Park for most of her life. During World War II, she was a "Rosie the Riveter," according to her granddaughter, Patty Tims.

After retiring from Safeway, she was a tireless volunteer at nursing homes, often providing flowers and cakes (from Safeway) for residents on their birthdays, says Ms. Tims.

She is survived by her sister, Dorothy Schubert; five grandchildren; eight great-grandchildren; and five great-great-grandchildren. The family is planning a private memorial service.
