BUSHFIELD – Mildred (nee Hobbins)

January 18, 1933 – March 21, 2011

Mildred Bushfield, beloved wife of Archie Bushfield of Calgary, passed away peacefully at home on Monday, March 21, 2011 at the age of 78 years.

Although she was raised a ‘city girl’, she met and married Archie in 1950 and loved being a farm wife. She was a talented homemaker and excellent cook, making wonderful hot cross buns and Danish pastries. Also a seamstress, Millie made many of Archie’s shirts and taught Lorraine how to sew. She was an enthusiastic gardener, growing vegetables for her family and canning. She took great pleasure in her grandchildren. Millie loved animals, especially cats- a passion which she passed on to her children. Later on, Julie the poodle joined the family.

Mildred was a Brown Owl for the Cub Scouts, and was also active with Girl Guides after the boys grew up. She achieved her Red Cross Swim Instructors certification, and taught lessons at Foothills Pool for the City of Calgary. Millie was also an entrepreneur, and owned ‘Millie’s Miniatures’, selling doll houses. She enjoyed volunteering at seniors residences delivering books.

Millie is lovingly remembered by her husband Archie; children Lorraine, Andy, John, Rod (Carmen); grandchildren Heather, Brad, Ron, Trevor, Tyler, and Claire; and her sisters Lucille, Helen, and Margaret. She was predeceased by her parents, and brothers John and Doug.

A private family service will be held. Please forward condolences through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.

In living memory of Mildred Bushfield, a tree will be planted at Big Hill Springs Park, Cochrane by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Chapel of the Bells, 2720 CENTRE STREET NORTH Telephone: (403) 276-2296.

    I am so sorry for your loss. Funny I was just going through some old photos when we were around 10, and reminiscing about those times together. Life was so much simpler then. Had Millie been ill, if so I hope she didn’t suffer. Always have fond memories of those days.
    My condolances to all the family.

  10. My deepest sympathy goes out to Archie and the family. She was truly a wonderful kind hearted woman and will truly be missed by all who she touched in her life.

    I knew Mrs Bushfield as my Girl Guide leader in I think it was 1972-1974. She lead my unit at the Huntington Hills School. We did our adventure camp on the farm and I enjoyed her leadership qualities.

    I will always remember the farm on the hill. I still live in the area and had thought of her often and wondered where she was. It sounded like she lived life to the fullest and enjoyed time with family and friends.

    God has now called her home and hopefully she is at peace.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
