MILLICENT BARBARA MARTIN Millicent Barbara Martin died peacefully on Tuesday, February 15, 2000, at the Deer Lodge Centre. Millicent was the daughter of Herbert and Mary Martin and was predeceased by her parents, her brother Ronald and her sisters Elizabeth and Kathleen (in infancy). She is survived by her loving family, her sister Freda Taylor, nephews Bill Taylor (Marilyn), Ken Taylor (Kris), her niece Laurel Garvie (Keith), all of Winnipeg, her nephew Ron Jones of Tokyo and niece Beverly Belgau (Frank) of Port Angeles and by her great-nephews and nieces and their children. Millicent was born June 4, 1909 in Eastbourne, England and came to Canada in June 1914. Following graduation from Kelvin High School, she obtained her teaching certificate and taught at Rupertsland College from 1931-36 while completing her Bachelor of Art at the University of Manitoba. In 1937 she joined the Winnipeg School Division where she taught in the elementary grades for 25 years. In 1961 she embarked on an around-the- world trip by tramp steamer. Enroute she made a number of friends with whom she kept in touch for the rest of her life. Upon her return, and until 1969, she taught at Balmoral Hall School and served as Mistress of the Lower School for part of that time. Following her retirement from Balmoral Hall, she spent some years teaching in Northern Manitoba. After her retirement, she lived at Richmond Gardens, 2900 Pembina Highway where she took an active interest in the Residents Association. Until the past few years, her summers were spent at her beloved cottage at Victoria Beach. She had many interests throughout her life and was a long-time member of the PEO (Chapter O), Augustine United Church and the Christian Womens Club. Millicent lived her life with great joy, enthusiasm and commitment. She tried to live each day to the fullest, and even when her health and sight were failing, she took great satisfaction in adapting to changing circumstances and in meeting each new challenge. Her family and her friends will remember her for her sense of humour, her keen mind and her indomitable spirit. A service of remembrance will be held on Monday, February 21, 2000 at 3:00 p.m. in the Leatherdale Gardiner Funeral Chapel, 1501 Waverley Street. LEATHERDALE GARDINER 1501 Waverley Street 949-4860
