Mildred was born in Calgary, Alberta on March 7, 1928 to George & Isabella Smith. Mildred was raised on a farm north east of Carstairs and rode her horse to the Davenport School & then finished High School in Carstairs. Mildred was a real farm girl, she loved all the animals and always had a variety of different ducks, peacocks & turkeys. She also spent a lot of hours in her large garden. In the spring you could find her out on the coulee hill looking for the first crocus buds.
