Millie was born Oct. 27, 1930, at Conway Springs, Kan. She was one of five children born to Henry Howard and Alice Gray (Marks) Bicket. During her childhood, her family lived in Kansas, Bonner’s Ferry, Idaho, McMinnville, La Grande and Beavercreek. Millie graduated from La Grande High School in 1948. 

She married George Leon Bryant of Beavercreek on May 29, 1953.

Millie and George had four children. They owned and operated the only Grade A goat dairy in Oregon for 12 years, while Millie worked full-time as a bookkeeper at Small Parts Manufacturing in Portland. In 1975, Millie and George bought their ranch on Clark Creek. Millie worked alongside George on the ranch while managing the Elgin Medical Center for 10 years. She did much of the baling, all of the record-keeping and cared for her grandchildren. She was active in her church and Union County Cattlewomen for many years.

Millie was chosen Agriculture Woman of the Year in 2003 and was Cattlewoman of the Year. She was a co-recipient, with George, of the Outstanding Cooperator of the Year from the Union Soil and Water Conservation District in 2001. 

Millie is survived by her husband of 59 years, George Bryant of Elgin; her children and their spouses, Michael and Vicki Bryant of Beavercreek, Joni and Mark Simmons of Salem, Melanie and Todd McClure of Elgin and Lori and Brian Herron of Elgin; 10 grandchildren; 10 great-grandchildren; sister and brother-in-law, Margaret and Bob Hoffman of Beavercreek; brother and sister-in-law, Howard and Shirley Bicket of Beavercreek; and other relatives. She was preceded in death by her parents; and sisters, Evelyn Woolery and Hazel Rush.

Memorial contributions may be made to the Alzheimer’s Association or GRH Hospice.
