Book of Condolences

Mike and Rosalind DaviesWe are so saddened to learn of Mildred's passing. We have known Mildred and Art since Pat and Sandra were young girls. She was a devoted wife and a loving mother, a very kind and generous person to whomever she met. We have such fond memories of our family get togethers during holiday times and other occasions that we will cherish as long as we live. Our heartfelt condolences go out to Sandra and Pat and their families. Our love and prayers will be with them and throughout the days and weeks ahead.
Douglas and Gail GrayI've known Mildred since I was just a baby as she lived across the street from my parents. In so many ways, she was a surrogate mother to me, showing me love and direction in my life. When I finally found a passion, it was sewing, and Mildred was the one who spent countless hours teaching me to be a perfectionist in this craft. She also helped me sew my own wedding dress. I will always cherish her friendship - it was truly a gift from God. She loved my son and children and I still have a toy she gave the kids one Christmas. I will miss talking to her but my life going forward is going to be so much better because she was a part of it. When you go into Sandra's home, you know for certain, it is a home of love - and that is what she taught her daughters. Love continues forever - and - I love you Mildred.

Christine BellDear Sandra, Pat and family - Mildred and I first became friends at Wilmar Heights United Church. She had such positive energy, deep faith and a quest for learning. Her genuine warmth, interest and care for others shone through every interaction. Together we attended an Alpha program as well as other workshops and church events and shared great conversations on our respective faith journeys. Following her move to London, we maintained contact via Christmas letters. It was an inspiration to hear from her every year. Her passion for life and love of family, friends and her church shone through every word. I will miss hearing from her but take comfort in the friendship we shared these many years. May God's loving embrace surround you all and bring you peace and strength in the day's ahead. Fondly, Christine BellBEGO
