It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Mildred Kathleen Michelin (nee Jane) and known to many as Mom, on May 2nd, 2014. Born February 6, 1925 in Vancouver B.C. She moved to the Comox Valley at the young age of 11 with her parents the Janes. That is when they opened up Comox Grocery, where she pedaled around delivering groceries on her bicycle. She then attended nursing school with the nuns in Toronto and returned to Vancouver where she finished her training at St. Paul’s. She then returned to the Comox Valley and worked as a RN both at Cumberland Hospital and St. Joseph’s Hospital. She married and was predeceased by Louis Bryant Michelin. She is survived by her daughter Barbara and son Geoffrey and 3 granddaughters Shawna, Teresa and Kristen, 1 grandson Anthony, 2 great grandchildren Sarah and Brynley and many friends. We will all miss her.

Private family arrangements.

The family would like to thank the many care aids and nurses as well as the amazing friends that have been there for us this past year. We would like you all to have a drink remember and celebrate the wonderful woman she was. Bottoms up beautiful, we will miss you!
