1924 ~ 2022
It is with much sadness that our family announces the passing of our mother, “Millie”, Mildred Geraldine Dufort, peacefully, at the Beausejour Hospital, on the evening of the 17th of June, 2022.
Millie was born in Ontario. She was preceded by her husband, Rudolphe Jean Dufort, by her parents, Jack and Flora McDonald, as well as her sisters, Kay Scalzo and Lillian Powell. She will be missed by her sisters, Nancy Stafford, Noela Wright, Lara Noga, her immediate family; her sons Donald, Gerald, Richard and Bernard, her daughters Michelle (Dewey) and Yvonne (Corbett), as well as by her grandchildren.
Mildred enjoyed a life beyond the average person’s dreams, as outlined in her
Autobiography, “The Lure of the North.” She was a full-spirited world explorer, born in Kenyon, Ontario, schooled, and married in Manitoba, raised her family in Hay River, NWT and Uranium City SK, collected antiques in Miramichi, NB and finally settled into the Anola and Beausejour, Manitoba area.
Please take a moment to remember and celebrate Millie’s extraordinary life. Life Celebration Event will be held on Monday, July 11th, 12:30 p.m. to 3:30p.m. at Anola Community Centre.Print This Obituary & Condolences
