Mildred M. Cimpl died Wednesday, November 8, 2017 at the Columbus Community Hospital.

Mildred "Millie" Cimpl was born June 18, 1932 in Utica, South Dakota to John P. and Christina (Becvar) Kortan. She grew up on a farm near Utica and graduated from Mount Marty High School in Yankton, South Dakota. On August 9, 1949 Millie was united in marriage to Emanuel Manny Cimpl at St. Wenceslaus Catholic Church in Tabor, South Dakota. She was very proud of her Czechoslovakian culture. Millie supported Czech Days, participated in the Beseda Dance and was a lifetime member of the American Legion Auxiliary in Tabor before moving to Nebraska in 1970.
Millie was very active in her church, both St. Bonaventure in Columbus and Christ the King in Las Vegas. She volunteered as a Eucharistic minister, delivered communion to the hospital, and hosted bible studies. She was a member of the Catholic Daughters of America in Columbus.
She loved to travel, visiting historic sites like Israel, China, Japan, Europe, Northern Africa, South America, and many places throughout North America. Millie loved to socialize and was an active member of dance clubs, bridge clubs, and her beloved Perky Debs Extension Club.
She was an active golfer with leadership roles in local and statewide women and junior associations. Millie was a long time member of the Elks Country Club in Columbus and the Spanish Trail Country Club in Las Vegas. Finally, she lovingly "tolerated" the Cimpl Invitational Golf Tournament founded by her husband in 1972.
Millie was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister and aunt. Spending time with her family was her greatest joy.
