Mildred Funk Obituary

Millie was born in Denmark, Nova Scotia on January 21, 1939, and passed away on December 28, 2023, at the Cypress Regional Hospital in Swift Current, Saskatchewan.

Millie was born to Lawrence & Ethel Joudrey. She grew up with two sisters Edith & Elsie and adored her little brother Hughie. Millie met the love of her life Dan, in October of 1958, and they married on June 27, 1959. They began their journey together in Nova Scotia and after their first child Bryan was born, they headed to France, where they had two more children, Leslie & Tracy. They moved back to Canada where they settled in Ramore, Ontario. Millie began working at Joseph H. Kennedy Public School in 1976, where she was affectionately known as “Mrs. Funk”. She absolutely loved going to work everyday for 28 years and had a story to share at the end of every day. Everyone she met held a special place in her heart.

She is predeceased by her parents Lawrence & Ethel Joudrey, sisters Edith Carruthers & Elsie Joudrey and her daughter Leslie Funk. She is survived by her loving husband of 64 years Dan; her son Bryan Funk (Janice); daughter Tracy Bertrand (Norm); and her brother Hughie Joudrey (Gayle).

Cherished Nan to her grandchildren Kyle (Sabrina), Casey (Jeff), Melissa, Gina (Steve), Jamie (Josh), Brad (Emily), Tyson (Jamesie), Kelsey (Paul), AJ (Sana), Trevor and 15 great grandchildren.
