Walter Lord Lynbrook Mills
(Walter to All)
In Loving Memory
Professor Emeritus
May 29, 1924 – November 1, 2014
A well known Theatre Pioneer passed away on November 1, 2014 at the age of 90 years. Truly a life that was well lived. Walter was fortunate to live his passion teaching drama, directing, acting and his many film roles. A clever lyricist, he was writing up to the time of his death. Students were always welcome and visited him often, even though he had retired from teaching at the University in 1991. Walter lived for his family and what a wonderful, happy, and adventurous life he gave them. Walter was born and raised in Moose Jaw, SK. Father Walter Mills, K.C. and Mother Maud Storing had three boys; Walter, David and Daniel. Walter was predeceased by his youngest brother Daniel. Walter and his wife Marion were loving partners for 62 years and their constant love never wavered. He will be lovingly remembered by his son Walter (Genia); daughters Laurie Lee and Susan Alexandrea. Also survived by grandchildren Scott, Tess, Alycia and Vanessa. Walter enjoyed visiting with his nephews, nieces and cousins on both sides of family in Canada and the United States. Walter was always active in the communities in which he lived and truly loved being a member of the Saskatoon Nutana Rotary Club. Donations in Walter's memory may be made to the Walter Mills Drama Scholarship (c/o College of Arts and Science, University of Saskatchewan) or to the Actors Fund of Canada (Suite 301, 1000 Yonge Street, Toronto, ON M4W 2K2). A Celebration of Walter's Life will be held at the Saskatoon Funeral Home, 338 4th Avenue N., Saskatoon, SK on Sunday, November 16, 2014 at 2:00 p.m. Interment at Hillcrest Memorial Gardens.
