It is with overwhelming sadness that the family of Mildred Brace announces her peaceful passing at the Kirkland & District Hospital on Monday, June 1, 2009. Mildred had a passion for life, she loved people and people loved her. She also enjoyed going to the family cottage in Matachewan, quietly sitting by the river and picking berries. Her second passion was cake decorating. Mildred would get many calls at home to make special cakes for different occasions. She also kept very busy with volunteering her time to work a “tea and bazaar”. Mildred was also an active member with the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 87 for many years. She is already dearly missed by her children Victor & Lourdes of Barrie, ON., Harry of Kirkland Lake and Norm & Bonnie also of Kirkland Lake. Mildred also leaves her dear grandchildren Pam & Mark of Shelburne, ON., Matt & Jill of Orangeville, Jesse of Kirkland Lake as well as her precious great granddaughter Alicia. Mildred will be sadly missed by many nieces and nephews. She is predeceased by her husband James in 2000 and siblings Harold, Wesley and Norma. Family will welcome friends at the MONETTE & FRENCH FUNERAL HOME (450 Government Road West, Kirkland Lake, ON., P2N 3L1) on Wednesday, June 3, 2009 from 2:00 to 4:00 & 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. Funeral Service will be held from the “Teck-Hughes” Chapel of the funeral home on Thursday, June 4, 2009 at 10:30 a.m. with Pastor Bob Weight officiating.
