Richard Nixon described his mother as "a Quaker saint." She is acknowledged to have exerted a tremendous effect on her son's outlook throughout his life. In Nixon's final remarks at the White House on August 9, 1974, he stated about her, "Nobody will ever write a book, probably, about my mother. Well, I guess all of you would say this about your mother -- my mother was a saint. And I think of her, two boys dying of tuberculosis, nursing four others in order that she could take care of my older brother for 3 years in Arizona, and seeing each of them die, and when they died, it was like one of her own. Yes, she will have no books written about her. But she was a saint."
She was born near Butlerville, Indiana, the daughter of Almira Park (née Burdg; 1849-1943), who was from Columbiana County, Ohio, and Franklin Milieus (1848-1919), a native of Colerain Township, Belmont County, Ohio.
She was married to Francis A. Nixon and had five sons:
- Harold Samuel Nixon (June 1, 1909 – March 7, 1933)
- Former President Richard Nixon (January 9, 1913 – April 22, 1994), married to Thelma Catherine Patricia Ryan and had two daughters.
- Francis Donald Nixon (November 23, 1914 – June 27, 1987), married to Clara Jane Lemke and had three children, including Donald A. Nixon
- Arthur Burdg Nixon (May 26, 1918 – August 10, 1925)
- Edward Calvert Nixon (born May 3, 1930)
