We Remember

BROOKE, Mildred (nee Brown, McBride)

August 25, 1920 — January 26, 2013

Mildred passed away peacefully in the Kelowna General Hospital on January 26, 2013 after a brief illness. She is survived by her children: Jim (Diane), Allan (Julie), Jerry (Linda) and Donna McBride McKay and numerous grandchildren: Denise, Russell, Scott, Daylene, Debbie, Robert, Andrew, Jenny, Melissa, Jeffrey and Kayla and step grandchildren as well as numerous great grandchildren. She was predeceased by her parents, her 1st husband, Lloyd and her second husband Charlie Brooke, her daughter Rita Randall, and her son Raymond McBride, her grandchildren, Ryan and Michael. She was also predeceased by her brothers: Howard, Bob, Stan, Morris, and Bud. She is survived by her sisters Marj and Vivian and her brother Eldon. Mildred was born in Raymond, Alta and grew up on her father’s farm.  She left there when she went east to work in a munitions factory during World War II. After the war she moved to Calgary and married her 1st husband Lloyd McBride. Lloyd was in construction and moved around quite regularly. Mildred moved with him and raised the family until they finally settled in Kamloops.  She lived for her children, giving them all of her energy. After Lloyd died in 1976, she raised Donna the youngest and the only one still left at home. After Donna moved out, Mildred took up bowling as a recreation. It was there that she met her second husband, Charlie Brooke and moved to Chase, B.C. They had 20 great years together. Several years ago Mildred and Charlie moved to Missionwood in Kelowna, where she resided until her passing.   Mildred loved reading, bowling, gardening and cooking, but most of all, she loved her children. A service to celebrate Mildred’s life will be held at Springfield Funeral Home at 2020 Springfield Road in Kelowna on February 9th at 1:00 pm.  In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Salvation Army.

    I can still remembering visiting Aunt Mil, and Charlie, out in Chase, home of the best corn on the cob in the World! Charlie took me and Dad out for a round of golf, thinking that he beat us… Then we went and seen the salmon spawning, great memories. Was quite a few years ago.
