She was predeceased by her husband, Edgar in 1998; sisters: Isabelle and Hetty; and brothers: Wilfred and Pat. Mildred trained as a teacher in Saskatoon and taught at various communities in Saskatchewan until her marriage to Edgar in 1951. As one of her brothers remarked, “She was the best teacher he ever saw”. She and Edgar raised their family of 11 in Calgary, Hussar and Lethbridge. Mildred was a wonderful mother and grandmother, who made numerous sacrifices for her children, for which they are eternally grateful.
