    Hey Guys, just received the very sad news that Milli Y passed away last night.

    She had been an integral part of the 101 Association from the beginning, putting together the first newsletters by xerox in the days before printing was easily available , went to all the meets with George, and became a surrogate mum to any and all 101 enthusiasts who wandered into Fort Yarocki. Her great sense of humour at unexpected moments and her love of Yorkies left an indelible mark on all who met her, and she will be sadly missed by all of us. 

    She leaves behind  Mark and Tracy, her son and daughter, Chea and Austin, her grand children, and Chea's boys, Keegan and Peyton, who she doted on, and of course Angel, her fifth yorkie.

     No news as yet of any funeral arrangements, but we will post them as soon as we hear. 

    I personally had the pleasure of spending a lot of time with Milli, she "adopted" me within weeks of arriving in Torrington, and our explorations and shopping trips were always huge fun, and helped me discover the rich tapestry of culture in NW Connecticut, visiting antique shops, cafes , wholefood shops , farm stores etc. and of course introducing me to the lovely Jess. We will all miss her immensely. 

    Best wishes to all her family.

    Tim

    With the passing of Milli Yarocki my sincere condolence goes out to her family.  I never had the opportunity to have meet Milli.  From the very beginning of the 101 Association, Inc. Milli contributed so much of her time and effort with George in making the 101 Association successful.  If I am not mistaken, even after George’s passing Milli was involved with the development of the 101 Association recognition emblem (see picture).  Every time I open the R&O Shop Manual and see that picture of George and Milli’s Indian 101 Scout, 45 with the Sweatheart side-car I always smile, picturing them both out in it attending some antique bike event or just out having a pleasant drive.  Thanks for the image!  RIP Milli.
