She is survived by her husband Randall Chin of Campobello, S.C.; son, Miles Phillips of Charlotte, N.C., and brother, Steve King of Wilmington. She is also preceded in death by her brother, Jay King. She was the proud grandmother of grandson, Mason Phillips.
Milly was raised and lived in the Winter Park area of Wilmington, N.C. and spent most of her life in the area. She was a member of Wesley Memorial Methodist Church in Wilmington. Her love for the mountains and her son called her to Campobello, S.C., where she has resided for the last four years.
She had a passion for horses and Harleys. She knew no strangers and was compassionate and loving to many. Her love to help others was indescribable. She had a true love for her husband, her dogs and Bill W. Her contagious smile and laugh will be missed by all.
