Mildred lived in the Harriston and Minto community all of her life. She enjoyed gardening and spending time in her kitchen preparing anything from play dough to chocolate pies. She also enjoyed participating in the Fall Fair and the Horticultural Society events. Most of all she cherished her time spent with her family and neighbours. No matter how long or short a visit was, she always enjoyed company.

Our family is very grateful to the staff of Caressant Care Nursing Home, Harriston, who cared for her in her final years.
