Mildred Grace Potter passed away peacefully on Monday, May 13, 2019 at Sagewood in Strathmore at the age of 85 years.
She will be forever loved and missed by her husband Gordon of 67 years and her four children: Neil (Marlene) Potter, Terry (Wayne) Hillestad, Lois (Les) Dugdale and Russell (Pam) Potter. Mildred will be lovingly remembered as Grandma by 11 grandchildren: Melissa (Todd) Christensen, Andrea (Murray) Slough, Nicole Potter, Wes (Natasha) Hillestad, Jared Hillestad, Darcy (Rhonda) Dugdale, Ryan (Jessica) Dugdale, Erin (Shane) Sawley, Devon (Tristan) Potter, and Jocelyn Potter. She was a proud great-grandma to 19 great-grandchildren.
Mildred was born on February 8, 1934 and was the eldest daughter of Bud and Frances Thompson. After she married Gordon they raised their family on the farm at Dalemead. She volunteered in several community groups bringing companionship to everyone in her kind and gentle way. Mildred and Gordon were avid bowlers and shuffleboard players although she spoke more of the people she met than the game she played. They were supporters of the hockey and ringette games of their grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Mildred loved nature, wiener roasts at the river, jigsaw puzzles, handicrafts but mostly time spent with family and friends.
The family would like to acknowledge the exceptional care Mom received at the George Boyack Nursing Home in Calgary and AgeCare Sagewood in Strathmore.
A Memorial Service will be held at Mountain View Funeral Home (Prairie View Chapel, 1605 100 Street SE, Calgary) on Friday, May 17, 2019 at 2:00 p.m.
