May 8, 1935 - July 24, 2023
It is with great sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Mildred Myrtle Tolton on July 24th, 2023. Mildred, daughter of Stephen and Lena Wlasichuk, was born in Verigin, SK and raised in Winnipeg, MB.
She was predeceased by her loving husband of 51 years, Gary in 2017. She is survived by her children Twyla (Fraser Markham), Jordan (Helen), and Lisa (David Kopp), her grandchildren Trevor Markham, Shane Markham, Michael Kopp, brother Len (Janine), as well as beloved nieces, nephew and many dear friends. Mildred leaves behind her loving companion, Truman, who could be found sitting on her lap or riding on her rollator.
The Toltons moved from Winnipeg to Saskatoon in 1973. Mildred worked at Pinder's Drugs and Shoppers Drug Mart for 23 years before retiring in 1996. Mildred and Gary enjoyed spending time in Ft. Lauderdale and then Oceanside wintering from the harsh Saskatoon weather. The Toltons then moved to Sechelt in 2013. Her favourite past times included playing golf, crib, needle point and knitting. Mildred's passion was gardening and cooking. She also loved travelling. One of Mildred's greatest thrills was riding a camel while on African safari in 2018 at the age of 83. Mildred was involved with many different community activities and groups such as cribbage, carpet bowling and lately chair yoga, quilting and knitting.
The family would like to thank the compassionate healthcare providers with Home Care and the Palliative Nurse team. In lieu of flowers contributions can be made to the Canadian Cancer Society in Mildred's name.
