Millicent Agatha Draper

Millicent Agatha Draper, 92, Parkville, passed away peacefully January 10, 2018 at home. Millicent was born in Moncton, New Brunswick on February 24, 1925 to Harry Wran MacLeod and Mary Phyllis Lister MacLeod. She was married to John Andrew Roy Draper on May 19, 1949 in Simcoe, Ontario. They were very proud to become United States citizens on December 20, 1974. Her husband Roy preceded her in death in 2004. She had been active in the Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd, Kansas City North serving on the Altar Guild and was Altar Guild Directress for many years. She embroidered altar linens for the Church. She and Roy donated the Our Lady of Walsingham window in the Church’s Chapel.

She is survived by her loving daughter Mary Catherine Draper, of the home. She is also survived by niece Caren MacLeod of Ottawa, Ontario, and loving cats Puff and Magic. She was preceded in death by her husband Roy, her parents, her brother Leland B. MacLeod and her nephew Cameron MacLeod. She was also preceded by her beloved pets: pugs, Yin Yang and Mugsy, her cocker spaniel Buffy and her cat, Curio.

She was a loving wife and mother and always supportive of her daughter’s pursuits and activities, many of which they enjoyed together. She enjoyed being a seamstress, sewing, needlework and counted cross stitch. Reading the newspaper was a daily priority and she enjoyed jigsaw puzzles, gardening, flowers and sitting outside on the porch. She also enjoyed going to Teddy Bear shows with her daughter and looked forward to visiting with the bear artists. She became known as the “Jubilee Mother” to all at this annual event. She loved Chinese food, almost any fish, and all things chocolate.
