MILDRED FRANCES HUBAND (MORDEN) On Monday, June 11, 2007, one day short of her 103rd birthday, at Belmont House, Toronto. Predeceased by her husband Dr. Allen R. Huband. Mildred Huband was born and educated in Hamilton, ON, where she taught school before joining her husband as companion and helpmate during 50 years of dedicated work in the United Church of Canada. They served churches in Brantford, Chesley and Woodstock, ON, before moving to Calgary in 1940, Winnipeg in 1948, and finally to Kingsway Lambton United Church in Toronto in 1955. After retirement in 1967, she continued to serve the Church with her husband in various capacities while at the same time enjoying cottage life at Lake of the Woods and winters in Florida. In 1992 the Huband's moved to Belmont House, Toronto. Mildred Huband was a woman of considerable tact, charm and kindness. She was a skilled artist and talented craftswoman and above all, she was known for her sense of fun and her incredible enthusiasm for life. After more than a century of living, she has left a warm and enduring legacy and will be sadly missed by her four children: Rolph (and Eleanor) of Oakville, ON; Charles (and Marilyn) of Winnipeg, MB; Mary (and Kenneth Hardy) of Ottawa, ON; and Donald (and Ann) of Guelph, ON; also by 12 grandchildren, 12 great-grandchildren and four nieces. She will be fondly remembered by the congregations she and Allen Huband served, as well as by a host of friends. There will be a private cremation. The family extends special thanks and appreciation to the staff at Belmont House, especially the nursing team, and in particular to Rose Cadiogan for her kindness. A Service of Remembrance will be held at Kingsway Lambton United Church, 85 The Kingsway, Toronto, on Wednesday, July 4, at 2:00 p.m. The Family will receive friends at a reception following the service in the Ladies Parlour of the Kingsway Lambton Church.
