    Our Love, thoughts and sincere condolences are with Mildred’s family as they grieve the loss
    Of their precious Mother or Sister. Mildred lived her long life sharing her Love and Joy with everyone fortunate to meet her. She lit up the room with her big smiles and her sense of humour was awesome!
    I was a small child when I met her and she ALWAYS made me feel special.
    She will never be forgotten.

    was such a delightful and upbeat person to be around.
    Neighbours for years in Northwest Brook has cemented many fond memories of our families.
    Play your “Spoons” in heaven’s band Mildred.
    Some day soon we will join you.

    Take comfort in the many beautiful memories of your Mom, they will surely outweigh your grief.

    My heartfelt condolences to you and your family in the loss of your dear mom. Aunt Mildred was a special aunt to us but to many she was a dear special friend. She taught us the joys of baking, preforming, singing, laughter and life. At 96 years of age she still had the voice of an angel and when she sang “God on the Mountain” she would sing that song with Mom in the background when I visited both of the them at Hillcrest.

    We will all have special memories of your mom, either baking fruit cakes for someone’s wedding, playing cards or winning at bingo or that contagious hearty laughter of hers. These memories will be precious just like Aunt Mildred. God bless.
