To Beverly, Gilbert and Mary Beth…
Your Mom’s smile lit every room that she entered. From my earliest memories her to my most recent visit with her only a couple of months ago, she always projected a rare warmth and grace that endeared her to everyone she met. Her passing came as her life was lived – on her own terms and in her own home. Bonnie and I offer condolences to each of you and to your families.
So sorry for your loss <3 She was so nice and cared for so many people.
I will greatly miss Mildred, we had lots of great chats when I was in her home with home support. She was a great lady.
I am thankful to have had both Lowell and Millie in my life, our time was short but sweet. I will miss her. My heart goes out to her family and dear friends.
To The Huskin’s Family
So sorry for your loss.

Aunt Mildred will be sadly missed by everyone. She was always cheerful and had a smile on her face. I had great times at her house when I was younger. More recently, I enjoyed taking her to the breakfasts in Port Mouton and the visits we had at Mom and Dad’s house on the holidays. We will miss you always Aunt Mildred. Rest in peace.
So sorry to learn of Mildred’s passing. My condolences to all of the family. She lived a full and inspiring life. I always enjoyed seeing her when in Port Mouton, or when she visited Moncton. She was always one of Rhonda’s favorite people. Rhonda loved her dearly. I will miss her and will remember her fondly. She now lives forever with a new body with our savior in Heaven.

So sorry to.read of your Mother’s passing. Remember all the good times together and keep her close in your heart. Kae (Wentzell) Webster
Millie was a good friend and I’m sure she will be missed by many. She was the last of the Central Port Mouton ladies that visited often, sewed and kept each other company. Everyone drove by her house, and expected to see her lights on.
I’ll miss our chats, my condolences to the family.
Cheryl and Bill Bouges
Mary Beth, Bev, Gilbert and family,
I was very saddened to hear about Mildred’s passing. She was a major part of my life growing up. My mom would have been heart broken to read this obituary as she was like a mother to her. She was a pillar in the community of Port Mouton and everyone knew her. She was very knowledgeable and knew everything. When I was stuck on something, I called Mildred. When I needed help with a baking recipe, I called Mildred. She always had a smile on her face and loved her family dearly. She will be missed by all who knew her. I can see her and Mom now in heaven drinking tea together and discussing what they are going to do. Rest In Peace Mildred and you will be dearly missed.
Love Cheryl and Bill xox
I am so sorry for your loss and I am sending you my deepest Condolences to Mildred family’s. She was the nice person to know and the kindness heart.
I’m so sorry for you loss.

Mary Beth, I have fond early childhood memories playing at your home. Your Mum always had an apron, warm smile & treats to welcome anyone- special memories.
Condolences to your entire family.

Beverly, Gilbert, Mary Beth and families
Our sincere condolences to all of you. It was our pleasure to have known Mildred. It was a “joy” to be with her and experience her lovely smile and pleasant manner.
Whenever we visited our “home” in Central Port Mouton and attended the Baptist Church, she was always the first person to greet us. She will be greatly missed!

Carol and Fred Turner
We say good-bye to Mildred with heavy hearts, as she is the last of the wonderful people in Port Mouton who played a hugely important role to all the children around them. Mildred’s life lessons, patience, caring and positive attitudes touched us all. “It takes a Village to raise a child” and how fortunate my generation is to have experienced this. It built confidence and self-esteem throughout our lives.
The Smith family left Port Mouton in 1956 but always stayed in touch with those who influenced us as we grew up. We have been fortunate to have enjoyed Mildred’s humour and laughs, right up to a week before she passed away.
Our deepest sympathy to Beverley, Gilbert, Mary Beth and their families. We are sorry for your loss and the loss to all with whom your Mom came in contact.
Carol and Fred Turner.
Eleanor Lloyd-West (Newell)
Deepest sympathy to Mildred’s Family. She was always one of the nicest people.
Remember her well, she was a ‘great’ Sunday School teacher, always great with us as children. R.I.P. Mildred. God Bless you all.
Robin and June Huskins

To the family of Mildred
Mildred was a warm and friendly person who always had a smile on her face and welcomed you into her home. Her brother Aubrey was my husband Jim’s best friend. Jim spoke so highly of Mildred. She will be missed by the entire community. My condolences go to all her family.
Kindest regards, Linda
Henry and Grace Wiens
We have fond memories of times when Mildred would come to the west coast for some months in the winter to stay with Gil
and Marg. So many warm tributes pouring in for the life Mildred led and the influence she had on many, speak of the goodness she radiated. Our sincere condolences to all the family. She was loved by many including Gil’s ‘in-law’ family in the west!
With warm thoughts and prayers
Henry and Grace

To Mildred’s Family,
I first knew Mildred as a child, and “growing up” in our church in Port Mouton she was a regular presence in my life. The last time I saw Mildred was June of this year at church. It was Father’s Day, and I had been to visit my Dad’s grave at the cemetery in Port Mouton.
Mildred looked her usual radiant self, and as I greeted her she had a big smile and a hug for me. She was so happy to see me. Such a nice feeling. I couldn’t believe she was 97. In my eyes she hadn’t changed a bit since her younger years.
My thoughts are with you as you celebrate Mildred’s life. She truly was a very special, very lovely lady. I’m so glad I saw her in June. I will remember her smile and warmth always.
Take care, and embrace all the wonderful memories of your Dear Mildred.
Jennifer (Adams) Walters
Gil & Marg and family
So sorry to hear about Mildred’s passing. I remember having many good visits with her when she came to visit you out west. Mildred was a lovely person and an awesome cook.
She will be missed
Jennifer (Adams) Walters
My thoughts are with you as you celebrate the life of a very special lady. I will always remember Mildred’s radiant smile and cheerful personality. I saw her in church this past June, and she greeted me with a big hug. She will be missed, but what a wonderful life she had. I wish you comfort in the coming days as you embrace memories of Mildred.

Mary Beth, so very sorry to hear of your Mom’s passing.
She was a very special lady. I will always remember the special times spent with you and your family during our teenage years. Sending hugs and thinking of you and your family.
I am so sorry for your loss
Mildred was admired by us for her gentleness and also her strength. We always enjoyed visiting with her when she came to the west Coast to visit her family. Also the time we spent with her in Maui where she had her favorite spot by the beach under a tree. In the early 2000s John and I visited Nova Scotia and made a trip to visit Mildred in Port Mouton. I still remember driving up to her house and there she was standing in her doorway ready to greet us. She will be missed by many and our condolences go out to Gil Margaret and the whole family.
she was one of my first sunday school teachers,my sincere condolences to all her family
Mildred was the last grand dame of Port Mouton. She enjoyed sunrise service on Carter’s Beach with a band playing in the background, She knew the hymns and sang from her heart.
She was always so confident when she spoke and telling stories would have a twinkle in her eye.
Now Shirley, Catherine, Jean and Mildred are once again together again.
When you entered her beautiful home she would show you the latest quilt she was working on for a new baby. Life was all about keeping busy.
Her smile and great hugs will be missed.
Trevor, Todd, Mary,
