Territorial Women's Memorial Rose Garden

Millie was born January 14, 1902, in Blackwell, Oklahoma, the daughter of Sarah Elizabeth Nail and William Anderson Slaybach. She married Charles William Ogg, a pharmacist, on August 18, 1919, in Ponca City, Oklahoma. They came to Yuma, Arizona, in 1925. The Oggs had two children: Jack Leroy (September 27, 1920) and Betty Jean Ogg Favour (February 22, 1923).

A life-long booster of Prescott, Millie spent most of her time caring for her family and garden. She belonged to the Garden Club, Mothers' Club, Smoki, Prescottonians, and was a member of the First Congregational Church. She lived in Pine Crest and at 120 Cherry Drive, Cortez Park.

Millie helped the Prescott Garden Club beautify the grounds of the Sharlot Hall Museum with plants and shrubs and was involved in the project to establish and care for the Territorial Women's Memorial Rose Garden. In 1996, the Board of Trustees of the Sharlot Hall Historical Society honored her by inclusion in the memorial in recognition of her dedication to this special project.

Millie died on June 4, 1986, and was buried in Mountain View cemetery.
