Dear sister-in-law of Keitha and Christina White. Mildred was the most beautiful woman inside and out. She was the most compassionate, caring woman and her greatest treasures in life were her love for her family, children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. They brought her the most joy and happiness in life. Everyone knew the love she had for gardening, church and helping others. Mildred’s door was always open for anyone. She gave without a second thought and never asked for anything in return. One of her favourite verses was Psalm 23.
“The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadth me beside still waters.
He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.”
A private family visitation and service will take place on Thursday, January 7, 2021 at the Island Funeral Home with cremation to follow. A Celebration of Life and interment of ashes will take place at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations can be in memory of Mildred to the Manitoulin Centennial Manor Auxillary, 70 Robinson Street, Little Current, Ontario P0P 1K0 or the Daffodil Terrace Lodge, 41 Ramsey Lake Road, Sudbury, Ontario P3E 5J1.
