Milly is the wife of my father's Uncle Tom. She is one of 14 children born to Rev. Conrad Engelder from Germany and his wife Catharine Groff. Milly was the seventh child in their family of nine sons and five daughters. Their home was in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Milly and her husband Tom had no children. She joined the Baha'i religion in 1919 and spent the rest of her life furthering the teachings of her faith with large donations of time and money.

"In 1947, she was proclaimed to be one of the Hands of the Cause of God [which is the highest honor in the Baha'i religion, similar to sainthood in the Catholic Church].

In 1951, Milly was appointed Vice-President of the International Bahá'í Council by Shoghi Effendi. In that position, she met with important people such as the president of Israel and his wife. The main gate to the shrine of Bahá'u'lláh was named in her honor. It is located outside of Bahji, (Akka, Israel) the holiest shrine for Baha'is."
