Mildred (Millie) Kaplan, age 96, passed away Sunday, Feb 28, 2021. Millie is survived by her loving husband of almost 75 years, Milton Kaplan and their three children, Steve (Revelee) Kaplan, Vicki Lapato, and Judy (the late, Robert) Hurwitz. Millie had six grandchildren and six great grandchildren. Millie was born in Milwaukee, WI to Fanny and Joe Mantel. She was one of six fabulous sisters known as the "Mantel Girls". She met the love of her life in Milwaukee before moving to Rochester, MN where they spent majority of their life alongside surviving sister-in-law and brother-in-law, Sandy & Ben Kaplan. Millie and Milt then retired in Florida where they were able to enjoy their later years. Millie has a large, loving extended family, nieces and nephews, all of which she treasured her time with. She was a strong and loving woman and will be sorely missed by all. A private burial was done by Ranfranz & Vine Funeral Homes in Rochester, MN. In lieu of flowers please contribute to The Mantel Family Foundation fund through the Harry & Rose Samson Family Jewish Community Center and the Ovation Jewish Home in Milwaukee, WI.
There are no events scheduled.
Milt Steve and family:
I just became aware so here is this late tribute to Millie...such a great lady!
My heartfelt sympathy to all the Kaplans.
Steve, Vicki and Judy....I was your babysitter for many years.....Janie Sibley lived right down the block. While your Mom went out to socialize or play cards, etc, I would come down and be with you. Such memories....She was quite a lady....Prayers to you all. Janie Sibley Hass
