On Wednesday, October 28, 2020, at the age of 93, Mildred Dolly Smids (Podaima) passed away from the corona virus. Mildred was born in Broad Valley, Manitoba. She had six brothers and six sisters.

Mildred worked at Rae and Jerry's and the Beefeater Restaurants. Post retirement she took care of her granddaughter Chelsea.
