Mildred Florence Reid (nee Ziegler), on December 31 in her 95th year. She was a rare spark, with a feisty spirit, sharp wit and lot of advice for anyone she thought needed it! Mildred, "Aunt Mern" to her family, grew up near Harriston, Ontario and spent time in Toronto, Ottawa and Vancouver before settling in Lorne Park. It was there that she and Harold raised their children, Scott and Christy (Towers). In retirement she and Harold moved to Cambridge where they spent more than 25 years before Harold passed. Mildred moved to Grimsby to be close to her daughter for the last six months of her life. She is survived by her children, five grandchildren and three great grandchildren, as well as her sister Hazel (McGuire), brother Cliff and many beloved nephews and nieces, all of whom were very special to her.
Mildred spent most of her working years with Peel Board of Education, where, although she was secretary by title, she spent many years advising Directors and Principals what to do and how to do it! Mildred loved getting together with family and friends, whether for Sunday dinner, bridge night, family parties or just a visit. She loved it all and made wonderful friends everywhere she went and in everything she did. We will miss her lively spirit.
Cremation has taken place and a Celebration of Life will happen when Covid allows us to gather, as she would have wished.
