Mildred (Millie) Alice Currie, December 6, 1932 - January 22, 2022 at the age of 89 passed away peacefully at the Kamsack Nursing Home.
With great sadness and celebration we say good bye to our mother, grandmother and great grandmother. Born in Preeceville, Saskatchewan, to Charles and Emily Cornish, Millie was the youngest of four children. Her love of music and sharing her gift began very early with entertaining family and friends with singing and playing piano. Millie shared a special bond with her siblings, particularly Owen. On May 19th, 1956, she married the love of her life James (Jim) Currie, Jim’s career with the bank, took them to many towns throughout Western Canada. During their moves, they had two sons Craig and Kevin.
Christmas at the cottage, complete with scrawny Christmas trees, adorned with popcorn garland, friends, games, temperamental dachshunds, long walks in the crisp air, snowman making, warm and cold beverages and lots of laughs were a few of Millie's favourite things. After Jim retired, they moved back to Kamsack as this community held a dear spot in their hearts. Millie was very devoted to her family and to her faith, playing the piano, singing in the church and community choirs, contributing to many auxiliary organizations in Kamsack. Millie was well known as the “mitten lady" as she knitted many hundreds of pairs mittens for the schools through the years.
Left to mourn her passing and honour her life are her sons: Craig (Debbie) of Kamsack, granddaughters Amanda and Heather Currie, great grandsons Kaidyn and Tucker. Youngest son Kevin (Eleanor), of Winnipeg, grandson Jonathan, and granddaughter Samantha.
As you celebrate Millie's legacy, listen to some music, dance, sing, or play along in her memory and we guarantee she will be smiling and be joining right along from above.
Millie is predeceased by her parents, siblings, and beloved husband Jim.
A private family service will be held at a later date.
