Milly Martin (Canterbury)
August 18, 1945 - December 12, 2018
Milly Martin (Canterbury), 73, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, December 12.
Born in Alhambra, California, and raised in Hollywood, Milly was a California girl through and through. She graduated from the famous Hollywood High and loved to recall memories of surfing in Malibu and mingling with the likes of Paul Peterson, Elvis Presley, The Monkees and other Hollywood legends she crossed paths with in her youth. During her time in Hollywood she also attended acting school, where she excelled both at acting as well as singing and even had a record produced.
After the birth of her first two daughters, she eventually parted ways with her beloved Golden State to call the Pacific Northwest home since her late 20s. She later co-owned and managed the historic Trout Lake Country Inn in Washington with her second husband and youngest daughter, and was famous for her one-of-a-kind "Milly Malts" and acting performances at the Inn's theater.
Her final move was to Sisters in 2001. Over the years Milly became known as a fervent Oregon Ducks fan, always driving through town on Game Day with her window flags flapping in the wind and yelling a proud "Go Ducks!" at every green and yellow fan she saw. Her most cherished memory was of her and two of her daughters, granddaughter and son-in-law attending the 2015 Rose Bowl to watch her Ducks dismantle the reigning champs, the Florida State Seminoles in Pasadena.
Milly loved giving, and could often be found bringing small gifts to people across Sisters, whether bank tellers, cashiers at the store or post office employees. Her generosity, thoughtfulness and loving heart will be deeply missed by the community.
Milly is survived by three daughters, Shannon Pollard, Cheyenne Mosca, and Tiffany Aguilar; son-in-laws Don Pollard and Kiefer Aguilar; grandchildren Ryan, Brandon, Jordan and Madison Pollard and a grandchild-to-be, Kayden Aguilar; brothers Malcolm Canterbury, Mark and Dion Waterman. She is preceded in death by parents Ruth Peck (Canterbury) and John Canterbury and sister Marceline Canterbury.
A Celebration of Life will be held for Milly on Saturday, December 29, at GFP Enterprises in Sisters (located at 307 W. Sisters Park Dr.) at 1 p.m. Guests are encouraged to wear their Oregon Duck clothing or any other casual attire.
