Mildred Leone Howey went home to be with the Lord on November 13, 2020. Mildred was born on December 7, 1923 in Vancouver, British Columbia. She is survived by her loving family: children Jim (Noreen), Laurel (Andrew) Ellwood, Heather Howey, and Clay (Jill); her grandchildren Brandie, Jesse (Terri), Alyssa, Tyson, Christopher (Julie) Benoit, Cameron (Medina) Ellwood, Beth (Joe) Cunningham, Stephen (Samantha) Pasmore, Scott, and Sabine; her great-grandchildren Trystan, Maryn, Savanna, Aria, Keegan, Adeline, Penelope, Wynn, and Walter; and her brother John (Alma) McKay. Sadly, she was predeceased by her husband Charles in 2010, as well as her sons David and Donald, and daughter Beth.
Mildred was a life-long learner and teacher. She received a Junior Certificate from the Alberta Department of Education in September 1946. Mildred and Charles were married on July 4, 1951 and resided in Fort Vermilion, AB where Charles pastored, and Mildred taught school. Together they pastored and taught in various communities in Alberta and the NWT all the while raising seven children. Mildred continued to further her education through night classes and summer school. She was rewarded with earning her Bachelor of Education through the University of Alberta in November 1973.
The family moved to Westbank, BC in 1972 to be near Mildred’s mother. Mildred taught at Immaculate High School until her retirement in 1988. Mildred will be deeply missed and lovingly remembered by her family and friends.
