It is with heavy hearts that the family of Mildred “Millie” McGinn announce her sudden passing on Oct. 2, 2011 at the age of 83.
Millie will be forever remembered by her husband of 56 years, Terence “Red” McGinn; their 5 children Martin, Lee (Karen), Jim (Paula), Ross (Wendy) and Patricia (Paul); 8 grandchildren Jennifer, Jason, Tyler, Tara, Cole, Ryan, Randy and Hunter; her surviving brothers Don (Joan), Ken (Elaine) and Bill, and her precious pooch Mia. She is predeceased by her daughter-in-law Elan as well as siblings Jim, Bob, Harry, George and Joyce.
A devoted wife and loving mother, for Millie family meant everything. She enjoyed gardening, quilting and especially cooking for family gatherings. Millie and Red met, married, and welcomed the births of their 4 sons in Whitehorse, Yukon and later welcomed their daughter in Banff, Alberta. After living 23 years in Invermere, BC, Millie and Red moved to the Island to spend their retirement closer to family.
Mass in memory of Millie was held on Thursday, October 6, 2011 at St. Mary’s Catholic Church with Father Waldemar celebrant.
