In Great Falls, MT, she was united in marriage to Theodore Mills, who preceded her in death.
Kaye loved her family. She loved spending hours in the sunshine with her flowers. She had a passion for animals. She was creative and enjoyed making cards. She loved riding her motorcycle,  going to church, traveling the world and especially enjoyed just generally being extraordinary. Kaye had a smile that brightened the room. She was a fighter, never complained and was grateful for everyday.
Survivors include two daughters: WyAnn Lipps and Yvonne Clark. Son George Lipps, a stepson, Toby Mills; two stepdaughters, Brenda Parrish and Glenda Penry. Kaye also had fourteen grand children,  seven great grandchildren and one great great grandchild. She is also survived by Christie Todd adopted daughter and soul sister Linda Fredrick. 
It was Kayes wish to be cremated, and services will be held at a later date.
In addition to her parents and husband, she was preceded in death by a brother, Wayne Hanson; and a sister, Linda Olsen.
Memorial contributions may be made to WyAnn Lipps to be used for continued support of the missionary work in Kenya, started by Kaye and Ted.
Arrangements are under the direction of Rea Funeral Chapel.

Kaye was an extraordinary woman that loved life. She made friends easily. My husband and I were befriended by her several years ago during a karaoke session at the VFW. Loved her laugh and her smile. She will be missed. Prayers for comfort and peace to her family.
