“Mildred, Millie, or Auntie Millie” as many knew her loved to paint mostly landscapes and still lifes. Her talent was extraordinary. She liked to mushroom pick while on vacation, often trekking through the woods in NW Ontario finding those delicacies. She also had a passion for antique collecting. She definitely will be missed by many who knew her. Her family meant everything to her. What an extraordinary life at the age of 103!

There will be no public services for Millie, however, a private burial will take place.

Donations to an organization of your choice or to the Humane Society, in Millie’s honor, would be appreciated.
