Millie Putnam Chambers, beloved wife of the former Urban "Bay" Chambers, died Monday, Feb.14, 2000, in Wheat Ridge.
Mrs. Chambers was born to Harry and Alice Bishard Putnam in Fort Scott, Kan., on Oct. 9, 1905, and moved to Pagosa in 1906. After Millie married "Bay" Chambers in Pagosa Springs on Oct. 10, 1925, she made her life-time occupation for 73 years as a wife, mother and homemaker in Archuleta County. A faithful member of Community United Methodist Church and of the Rebekah Lodge No. 134, Millie loved the mountain country she lived in. She was an avid hunter, loved fishing, gardened, embroidered, made ceramics, quilted and cooked with a flair. She belonged to a snowmobile club, rifle club and the Senior Citizens Center. She was truly a child of this land.

Mrs. Chambers was preceded in death by her husband, Mr. Urban "Bay" Chambers. She is survived by her sisters, Mrs. Blanche Murray of Bayfield and Mrs. Myrtle Crowley of Leoti, Kan.; daughter and son-in-law Arlene and Bob Miller of Denver; granddaughter Georgia Schuessler of Denver; grandsons Bill Miller of Denver and Lyle Miller of Arvada; six great-grandchildren, and six great-great-grandchildren.
