of Dartmouth. It is with broken hearts and profound sadness that the family announces the passing of our beloved mother, mother-in-law, grandmother, sister and aunt on Sunday May 10, 2020 at Oakwood Terrace Nursing Home.
Born April 6, 1933 in Pine Grove, she was a daughter of the late Florence and William Sarty. Mildred worked a successful and fulfilling career with the NS Provincial Government in several departments, eventually retiring form the Sheriffs Department. Mom loved spending time with her family, relatives and friends, eager for visits and always game for a road trip (especially if someone else would drive). She enjoyed shopping, camping with the trailer, working on a good puzzle and her vacation trips to Newfoundland.
She is survived by her children, Shirley Innes, Halifax; Jim (Kim), Dartmouth; Cathy Oickle (Mitchell), Hatchet Lake; Rick (Irene), Spryfield; her sister, Beulah Davis, East Uniacke; grandchildren, Rodney, Sylvia, Scott, Jessica, Courtney, Kyle, Britney, Zachary; five great grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews. Beside her parents, Millie was predeceased by her husband, Eric and son-in-law Barry Innes.
The family wishes to thank Oakwood Terrace staff and volunteers, especially Unit “A”, for their kindness, care and support! A special thanks to Mom’s roommate Lillian for being her friend and watching over her.
A private family service will be streamed from J. Albert Walker Funeral Home (2005) Ltd. at 12:50 p.m. on Friday May 15. Interment to follow service at Pine Grove Cemetery. A Celebration of Life will take place at a later date. Donations in memory may be made to one of Mom’s supported charities, the Alzheimer’s Society of Nova Scotia.
