Obituary for Gisela Millbrandt

Gisela M. Millbrandt, 92, formerly of Salt Lake City, Utah died peacefully at home in Mason, New Hampshire on January 31, 2017.

She was born in Germany on June 17, 1924. Her family name was Siebold. She married Gerhard Millbrandt in the mid 1940’s and they had one son, Wolfgang W. Millbrandt. The family emigrated to the United States in January, 1956 and settled in Salt Lake City, Utah. They became U. S. citizens in the early 1960’s.

Gisela worked as an electronics inspector at Litton Industries, now Northrup Grumman, for twenty-five years. She was an avid vegetable gardener, feeding her family and the neighbors, canning and freezing, while Gerhard tended the backyard fruit trees. The family built a summer cabin in the Uinta Mountains, next to Bear River, where you could look upstream and see the mountain headwaters at Stillwater Fork, Utah. Her other passion was needlework, knitting sweaters, blankets and pillow covers, crocheting and stitching embroidery.

After retirement, Gisela traveled every year to exotic places, Africa, South America, Southeast Asia, China and India. She enjoyed volunteering in the local soup kitchen and, in summer, brought them her garden produce. She lived in Salt Lake City for 58 years, until moving to Mason to live with her family.

Gisela was predeceased by her husband, Gerhard Millbrandt, in 1984 and her son, Wolfgang W. Millbrandt, in 2016. She is survived by her two grandsons, Eric E. Millbrandt and Robert D. Millbrandt, both of Mason, NH. She will be missed by her daughter-in-law, Dotsie Millbrandt, also of Mason.

A funeral service will be held on Friday, February 10, 2017 at the Michaud Funeral Home, 32 Maple St., Wilton at 2:00 pm. Burial will be in Salt Lake City, Utah in the spring, where she will be laid to rest with her husband at Wasatch Lawn cemetery. There will be a graveside service at that time.

In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to the food pantry of your choice.
