After Homeland closed she began working for Carters Food in Vinita, retiring in 2015.
Milene was known to have a large personality. When you walked into her home it was expected to give her a hug and kiss before anything else. She loved visitors and was the first to always lend a helping hand, give advice, or be a listening ear, she knew no strangers as everyone she met was considered a friend. Her life revolved around her family and friends, therefore she didn't believe in saying good bye but alway said “later".
In her spare time Milene enjoyed traveling to New Mexico, raising cactus, gardening, doing pottery and basket weaving.
