Eventually she moved to Vancouver, BC where in 1955 she met and married her husband Ercell. The couple moved to Victoria where their three children were born. Ercell’s Navy career took the family to Germany where they lived for three years. Mildred enjoyed traveling and exploring Europe during the years spent there. Upon their return to Canada, they settled in Mission, BC. Mildred spent much of her spare time bowling, going for walks, bird watching, and shopping for her grand children and great grandchildren.

She will always be loved and dearly missed by all that knew her.
