Mildred was born and raised in Williams Lake, B.C. After her marriage to Gordon, Mildred and

She canned, pickled and made lots of jams and jellies. If you ever came to the house, you were
always welcomed by a cup of tea or coffee and fresh baked cookies, squares or fresh buns.
After raising their children Mom and Dad enjoyed fishing and their many trips to B.C. to visit
family and friends.

Louise & Brian (deceased), Allen & Wanda, Paul & Linda, Brian & Lorie; 17 grandchildren, 19
great grandchildren; sisters, Jackie & Buzzi Frizzi, Donna Rae & Tommy Illnicki; brother-in-law

many of her siblings and their spouses and by her in-laws and brothers and sisters- in-law from
