She died Jan. 14. Funeral services were Jan. 18 at the Ocean Springs Chapel of Bradford O’Keefe Funeral Home.
Milam, a native of Greenville, lived in Ocean Springs for 20 years. Survivors include a son; a sister; a brother; four grandchildren and a great-grandchild.
Her husband, J.W. Milam, died in 1980.
Till, a black 14-year-old from Chicago, was killed after whistling at a white woman in 1955 outside a grocery in Money, Miss.
Authorities alleged Roy Bryant and J.W. Milam killed Till several nights later.
An all-white jury acquitted them. They later confessed in a Look Magazine report. No other charges were ever brought.
