Lakie McMillion

Lakie Elaine Anderson McMillion, 87, of Stuarts Draft Retirement Community and Christian Homes, Stuarts Draft, Virginia, formerly of Hillsboro and South Charleston, departed this life Tuesday, June 23, 2020, after a lengthy period of declining health.

Born April 12, 1933, at Marlinton, she was a daughter of the late Lake E. Anderson and Virginia S. Clutter Anderson.
