    Millie Hehir was an iconic teacher and guidance counselor at CHS. She always had the best interest of kids in all she did. It was impossible to say no to her. Even though you had 34 kids in a class, if Millie felt you were the best suited teacher for that kid, she found a way for you to say yes. A true Hall of Fame faculty member. Rest in pease, Millie.


    Sheila Tucke

    Millie was a dear friend of my father, Gerry Tucke who passed June 1, 2019 at the age of 91y.o. Also, of my mother Kay Tucke who passed March 7, 2020.
    I hope they are all happily together.
