Some sad news in the world of Minnesota Vikings fans today, as the family of Millie Wall has announced that she has passed away at the age of 102.
You may remember Millie Wall as the kind grandmother that the Vikings gave tickets to for their 2017 NFC Divisional Round game against the New Orleans Saints. It was Millie’s first opportunity to see the team play in the postseason in person, and she got to see a pretty darn good one.
Millie’s passing was announced on social media by her granddaughter, Ashley, who attended the Minneapolis Miracle game with her grandmother.
It is with great sadness that I announce my Grandma Millie passed away earlier today at the age of 102. She was a remarkable woman who lived a beautiful life filled with faith, family, kindness, laughter, & love. She will be so missed by so many & she will never be forgotten❤️ pic.twitter.com/0t9fYv9BwN— Ashley Wall (@ashleyjwall) June 10, 2021
The Vikings had named Millie one of their 60 greatest fans this past season, and received a call from NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell on the occasion of her 100th birthday a couple of years ago. She was also named the Vikings’ 2020 Fan of the Year.
We here at The Daily Norseman want to send our condolences to the family and friends of Millie Wall on her passing. Rest in peace.
