Mildred passed away peacefully with her family at her side. She will be terribly missed by her daughters Karen Hoiness and Linnet White and her daughter in law Kathy Hoiness; grandchildren Kelly and Ward (Mariane); Kim ( J.D.) and Darcy (Terry); Jeff (Shannon), Darren (Shannon) and Heather. Her great grandchildren David, Annie; Dirk; Campbell, Spencer, Mullen; McLaren, Keva, Thiessen; Dalyn, Cassidy; Eric and Bryn. Her great great grandchildren Damien and Madison. She will also be missed by her very close friends. Mildred was predeceased by her parents Lillian Smith/Yeager and Fred Smith, her husband Carl, son Don and her brothers Rnold, Don and Harold. Mildred was the best mom, grandma, GG a family could have. She supported each and every one of us through all our pains, successes and cockamamie ideas. Thankfully she had a wonderful sense of humour which she generously passed down. She was an excellent farmer who loved the land. Mom continued to farm after dad passed till "the boys" could take over. She loved curling and bonspieling, curling well into her eighties. She played bridge and enjoyed her bridge clubs for many years. She participated avidly in games of all sorts. She travelled extensively all over the world on many farm tours. Her hostessing skills and good food will be remembered by family, friends and community. The door was always open. Fried chicken, cinnamon buns, fresh asparagus from her huge garden, lunches in the field at harvest. She could get those field meals prepared and still haul grain. She had the grandchildren in the summers and they all remember being in the grain truck with mom and playing yahtzee while waiting for the next load. We would like to thank the staff at Sunny Side for their care, especially in the last few weeks. In respect for Mildred's generosity to her community, in lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Crocus Co-op. A Celebration of Mildred's life will be held at Hillcrest Memorial Gardens on Monday, November 26 at 2:00 pm. Email condolences may be sent to email@example.com. Funeral arrangements are entrusted to Saskatoon Funeral Home. Ph 244-5577
