Mildred Goodsell

March 30, 1925 - September 22, 2013


It is with heartfelt sorrow, sadness and great love we say goodbye to Mildred “Millie” Goodsell (nay Hawkins).  Born in Comox March 30, 1925 to Ellen and George Hawkins.  Millie lived most of her life in the Comox  Valley where she met and married her husband Don Goodsell (predeceased 1993) and together they raised their two daughters Linda and Patricia.  Her husband Don lovingly nicknamed her “Cookie” and that name stuck with the entire family.  Millie joined the Forces @ the age of 17 and served the war effort in Canada, carrying on after the war with a career in the civil service until retirement.  Don and Millie loved their leisure time together enjoying driving the back roads of British Columbia hunting, fishing and camping in their travel trailer. She dedicated her time to the women's auxiliary of the Royal Canadian Legion – Comox Branch 160 of which she was a 60 year life member and was instrumental in the development of d'Esterre House Seniors' Centre in downtown Comox. In retirement Millie and Don spent many years snow birding to Mazatlan Mexico in their RV enjoying that time with old and new friends. In later years, her health failing, she moved in with her daughter Patricia's family in Duncan where she could have close family care and spent her last 5 years. Millie has left behind Linda MacLeod and her husband John and Patricia Wallis and her husband Bryan, seven grand children and 12 great grand children.

Thank you to Comox Home Care and People at Home care workers who attended to Millie while she was living in Comox with her brother Bob.

The family wish to express their sincere thank you to the many health care workers who, with considerable kindness, attended to Millie while in Duncan and thank you to the staff of residential care facility of Cairnsmore Place and the Cowichan District Hospital.
