Obituaries » Joyce Poe Mills

Joyce Poe Mills, 80, of Marshall, went to be with our Lord on May 31, 2018, after a very short, unpredictable battle with an unexplainable infection in her blood.

She was born December 24, 1937, in Hume, the youngest of the late Ollie and Eva Poe’s 13 children.

She was married to Carlin William Mills for 59 years and they knew each other their whole lives.

She was a devoted wife and mother at home and a teacher and administrator in Fauquier County schools. To many, Mrs. Mills was known as a master quilter and skilled seamstress. She hosted many family gatherings with a house full of loved ones and large pot of Grandma’s chicken and dumplings; she was an amazing cook. Having moved to Amissville at retirement, she was very active in the local retired teachers’ association, as well as her quilting group. She attended Warrenton Presbyterian Church but earlier in life was faithfully found at Hume and Marshall Baptist Churches.

Mrs. Mills raise her three children, John Wesley Mills, Sheryl Poe Mills and Brett Alan Mills, through whom she also has nine grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren.

The family will receive friends from 4 to 6 p.m. Sunday June 10, at Moser Funeral Home in Warrenton. A memorial service will be held at 11 a.m. Monday June 11, at the funeral home, with inurnment to follow at Leeds Cemetery.

Memorial contributions may be made to Hope for Appalachia, P.O. Box 135, Amissville, Va. 20105.
