She will always be remembered by her sister Esther Butson and sisters-in-law Renata Rose, Dorothy Rose and Norma Rose and brother-in-law James Spivey. Mildred and John loved their seven godchildren and their many nieces and nephews.
They were blessed with their son Robert and they cherished his family, with his wife Debbie and grandsons James and wife Tanya, Jared and wife Heidi and John and partner Kayla.
Mildred may be remembered by some as the Avon lady in the east end during the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s. She also hosted many festival guests during that time. She enjoyed playing euchre and will be missed by her card partners for getting many lone hands and winning many games with them over the last 20 years. Living in her home on Burritt Street for over 60 years she will now rest at First Lutheran Cemetery with her husband, parents and some of her siblings.
