My grandparents would be proud,” Mills said. “My family comes from Ireland, the O’Shea and O’Regan family. If you knew my relatives, you would know what I was talking about.”Mills’ children, George Mills and Diane Carlucci, were both present at the ceremony.“She’s a wonderful mother to me,” George Mills said. “We are so proud of her.”Patricia Mills, who has lived in Winsted since 1985, said she specifically requested that the ceremony be held at the senior center.“The senior center is the heart of town,” Mills said. “As for what I would like to do as mayor, I would like for the town to do good.
