Dear Classes of 1987, 1991 and 2013:
This is a Deacon Alert to inform you of the passing of Mildred "Millie" Bach on Saturday, April 9th.
Millie was the mother of Laura (Bach) Alderman* ('87) and Michael Bach ('91) and the grandmother of Dylan Alderman ('13) and Emily Alderman ('16).
Millie was born on March 18, 1942 to Richard and Mamie Billings. She was born and grew up in Lakota, North Dakota.
After graduating high school, she moved to Fargo where she worked at St. Luke’s Hospital. During this time, she met Donald Bach. On September 4, 1965, they were married at St. Anthony’s of Padua in Fargo. They had two children: Laura and Michael. When the kids were young she stayed at home and eventually returned to work. After working various job, she found her passion in real estate. Millie joined Park Company Realtors in 1993 and over the next 23 years thoroughly enjoyed meeting and knowing her clients and helping them find their homes.
Even greater than her love of real estate, was the love she had for her family. She was proud of her son, Michael, and daughter, Laura along with her grandchildren Dylan, Emily, and Theya. She rarely missed the opportunity to attend her grandchildren’s activities.
Millie was exceptionally devoted to her faith. Through the years she participated in numerous bible studies, adoration, and attended daily mass. Her strong faith life allowed her to survive cancer for over seven years and brought her peace during difficult times.
Millie was preceded in death by her parents, husband Don, her brother George Billings, and sister Marge Ralston. She is survived by her children, Laura (Shane Alderman), Michael (Heather Stromquist) and grandchildren Dylan, Emily, and Theya. She is also survived by her sisters Carol Braniff and Barbra Deal along with brother-in-law David (Margot) Bach.
