Millie was born in Winnipeg, MB.  After she completed her schooling she moved to Calgary for a short time and then in 1958 moved to Winnipeg where she worked as a Switch Board Operator at MTS. In 1959 Millie met her life partner Hugh and were married on April 2, 1960. After their wedding Millie moved to Roland where her and Dad farmed and raised their family until retirement then moved to Carman. 

Millie was very involved with both Myrtle and Roland communities and was a long time 4-H leader with the Myrtle 4-H club. Mom enjoyed knitting, sewing and many other crafts. She especially loved making special quilts for each of her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. In her spare time she loved going to Bingo and especially enjoyed calling bingo at Monday afternoon bingo at Meadowood Estates. She also enjoyed watching sporting events of her children and grandchildren. 
Mom, you will always be deeply loved, sadly missed and always remembered as a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother and friend. We will wrap ourselves tighter in our quilts and forever cherish the memories. 

The family would like to thank the staff at Carman Memorial Hospital for their wonderful and compassionate care that mom received.

In respecting Mom’s wishes there will be no formal funeral. A private immediate family gathering will be held at a later time. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Carman Memorial Hospital Palliative Care, Box 610, Carman MB. R0G 0J0.
