February 5, 1923 - October 9, 2015
SAVORY, Mildred (nee Barker) Mildred was born in Edmonton Alberta on February 5, 1923. She met her dearly beloved husband Harry in Ottawa and in 1951, they settled in Hawkesbury, Ontario where he had a long career with the CIP. They enjoyed golfing, curling, bridge and an active social life while raising three children. When Dad was transferred to Montreal, Mom found a career as an AV Technician at John Abbott College. They retired to Ottawa and began traveling. The Bob's Lake cottage provided a happy destination for family gatherings. Although devastated in 1988 when Harry died, Mom made the decision to carry on as best she could without him. She volunteered at the Ottawa Experimental Farm, and at the National Gallery, took up Tai Chi and continued traveling. She loved music and theatre. She was proactive in her own life decisions and when she decided to move to BC to be near her son Jim, she entrusted him to find her a place to live. The condo at the Royal Oaks in Tsawwassen was perfect in every way. For the past decade Mildred was delighted with her friends she met at Newcomers, S.O.S, the Delta Hospice Charity Thrift Store, in her neighborhood and through travelling. Mildred was gregarious, loved life, enjoyed talking to people and made friends for life everywhere. Her friendships sustained her and in return she was an excellent listener and very loyal. She was fiercely independent, and had a great sense of humour. Her travels were curtailed by increasing frailty, and she was saddened by loss of friends, and mostly recently her dear brother Glen. When reflecting on her long life, she said her motto had been to live without regrets. She said every day she knew she was a "lucky girl". Sadly, Friday, October 9th she finally succumbed to illness and passed away at the Delta Hospital. She is survived by daughters Joy (Fiset), Deb (Bancroft) and son Jim, nine grandchildren, and six great grandchildren. The family wish to thank the staff at the Delta Hospital and especially Anna Erickson's Ladybugz for their kind care and support during Mom's last difficult months. Friends are invited to gather and share memories on Sunday, October 18th from 2:00 to 4:00 pm at the Royal Oaks Social room. In condolence, please make a donation to the charity of your choice.
