Millie Ruth (Stanley) “Pill” Ransom was born April 15, 1930 in Topeka, Kansas, to Ernest Ray Stanley and Evans Turrentine Stanley. Millie passed away peacefully on January 12, 2018 in Englewood, Colorado. She was preceded in death by her son, Todd Ransom (Los Angeles, CA) in 2009 and is survived by her daughter, Kerry Ransom (Denver, CO) as well as nieces, nephews and numerous friends.

Millie got her nickname “Pill” at an early age because she was so small and hard to take! Her passion for life was infectious and she touched many people.

Millie attended Washburn University in Topeka, KS, where she was a member of Alpha Phi sorority. She moved to Denver in 1969 and became a ski instructor at Loveland Basin. She was also a floral designer, worked in retail at Chico’s in Cherry Creek, sold art supplies at Drummonds Arts and Crafts, and modeled and performed in numerous commercials. Millie was a member in good standing of the B.P.O.E. Aurora Elks Lodge 1921. Besides skiing, Millie had many interests: travel, gardening, art, politics, painting and karaoke. Very athletic, Millie could still perform her “high kick” well into her 80’s.

A Celebration of Life will be held at Horan and McConaty, 1091 S. Colorado Blvd, Denver, CO on April 21st, at 2pm. In lieu of flowers, please consider sending donations in Millie’s name to The Human Rights Campaign (, or the Denver Dumb Friends League, Like Millie herself, her celebration of life will be unconventional and fun.
