Fort Worth—Mildred “Millie” Louise Duesman Wesley, 82, a retired employee of AT&T Southwestern Bell and longtime Fort Worth resident, died peacefully at home Saturday, April 20, 2019.
Millie was born to Herman and Rachel Duesman on February 14, 1937 in Pilot Point, Texas and graduated from Pilot Point High School. She married her love, Noel Alton Wesley, on June 13, 1959; they were married for 39 years.
After graduation, she worked for Montgomery Wards, but once she was hired by Southwestern Bell, a 40-year relationship developed. Millie was known to be a dependable and hardworking employee. She was loved by all that knew her and well-known for her delicious cooking, especially her pies. Everyone always looked for them at family gatherings. She was creative and could fix anything; a true fixer-upper, she flipped houses before flipping houses was cool. Millie was kind, loyal and a true servant at heart; her family and friends knew she would do anything for them. She was adored by her grandchildren who called her Grammie.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Noel Alton Wesley, and her parents, Herman and Rachel Duesman. She is survived by her children, Renée Long (husband, Sam), Steven Wesley (wife, Hannah), and Denise Bruner (husband, Byron); grandchildren, Katie and Will Morgan, Cade, Ellie and Trent Wesley, Gracie and James Bruner; step-grandchildren, Lyndsay Snider, Rhett Long, Ryan Long; and 4 step-great grandchildren.
