Mildred was nicknamed Toots at a young age and was Aunt to many Nieces and Nephews that will miss their Auntie Toots dearly. She had a great sense of humor and when she went into the nursing home everyone said how much they loved her and her infectious smile.
Mildred grew up on the Family farm in Pasqua, Saskatchewan but during the war she travelled by ship with all the war brides to England to be with their husbands that were fighting in the war. The women worked in the factories making ammunition until the war ended, then she returned to Saskatchewan and started a family.
In the early 50’s she moved to Kitchener, Ontario with her 2 children and worked at Woolworths, Dare Cookies, and then Electrohome, where she became the plant nurse for many years. She also worked for the RCMP, part time, until retirement at 65. She was presented with a beautiful plaque from the Officers in which she proudly hung in her room.
Mildred Loved to travel and she did a lot of trips by car to the West and East Coast of Canada.
Also an avid gardener and her gardens were always admired by neighbours.
Mom I Loved you with all my heart and I was honoured to have you as my Mother.
You are now reunited with so many loved ones that have been waiting for you.
Loved Forever Forgotten Never
