MYETTE, Mildred Josephine
(Age 102)

Passed away October 8, 2011. Mildred was born in Hamilton, Montana on January 19, 1909 to William Joseph Myette and Abigail Rosella Corrigan Myette. She joined her older sister Margaret in the family. Her early years were spent in the mining town of Blewett, Washington where her father was involved in logging. Mildred lost her father to an automobile accident when she was just 16 years old. The family moved to Omak, Washington and then to Spokane when Abbie married John Gibbs Lovell, M.D. Mildred graduated from Lewis and Clark High School and eventually went to Kinman Business College. After finishing her course at Kinman, she was hired by Safeway to work in the accounting department of their main office. She retired from Safeway in 1974. After retirement she was able to travel all over the world. She thoroughly enjoyed seeing many new and exciting places. She loved to garden and enjoyed a good game of golf. Leisure time never found her far from a crossword puzzle. Mildred was an ardent fan of Gonzaga basketball and the Seattle Mariners, and rarely missed watching a game on television. Her devout faith led her to attend daily mass and she volunteered at the Immaculate Heart Retreat House as a Martha for many years. She was a member of Sacred Heart Parish until moving to St. Mary's 10 years ago. Even though Mildred never married and had no children of her own she was considered a mother and grandmother figure to her many nephews and nieces. She was always there to listen and support those who reached out to her for advice. Mildred was preceded in death by her father William, mother Abigail, step father John Lovell, sister Margaret Rademacher and nephew John Rademacher. She is survived by her nieces Joan Guell and Susan Greany, cousins Kathleen Schneider, Gail Moos and Jon Danielson and many other family members. Rosary will be held Friday, October 14th at 7:00 p.m. and Mass of Christian Burial on Saturday, October 15th at 10:00 a.m., both at St. Mary's Catholic Church, 304 S. Adams Rd., Spokane Valley. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to Hospice House of Spokane or the Immaculate Heart Retreat House.
