Bridget Mills, of Tampa, FL died Saturday, May 13, 2017, at home after a brave battle with pancreatic cancer.
Born in West Chester, PA September 23, 1958, to Robert E. and Patricia S. Mills, Bridget grew up in Wilmington, DE. She graduated from the University of Delaware and had a long career in the pharmaceutical industry. Bridget lived in Wilmington until 1995 when she moved to the Tampa Bay area.
Bridget was an avid follower of world events and enjoyed the banter on MSNBC. She especially enjoyed arguing politics with her father before his passing. Bridget had a lifelong passion for science and was always current on developments in biology and medicine. She loved the beach, gardening, and cherished her two dogs Sully and Nell. Her greatest joy in life was her daughter Kristy, who supported her through her illness and always made her a very proud mother.
Bridget is preceded in death by her parents and is survived by her daughter Kristina Craig Anderson and her husband Marc, her sisters Mary Pat Bloom (David), Martha Rich (Pat Farrell), Margaret Fasick, Anne Hobbs (George), brother Robert E. Mills, Jr. (Juli) and numerous nieces and nephews. She is also survived by her wonderful friend and former spouse Wayne Beardwood and Kristy’s father Richard Craig. A special thanks is offered to Mary Pat for the many weeks of love, compassion and care given to Bridget during her illness. Thanks also to Synergy Home Health services for their extraordinary care.
