OBITUARY Mildred Jane Nattress

Mildred Jane McCutcheon (nee Nattress) in her 96th year.

A  graduate of Victoria College (3T4), she worked at the North American Life Insurance Co. until her marriage in 1944 to Frank Alexander McCutcheon when she went to live at Willow Bank Farm, Nobleton, Ontario. Frank passed away in 1960. She turned her lifelong passion for reading into a vocation and served as the librarian for the Kleinburg Branch of the City of Vaughan Public Libraries, overseeing the doubling of the library space and the growth of the collection to 20,000 titles. She retired in 1982 at the age of 68. She was relentless in her efforts to establish the habit of reading in the young people who patronized her library branch, tailoring school class reading programs for the two area elementary schools so that virtually every young person in the area held–and used–a library card during her long tenure as librarian. At her retirement, two generations of library pages gently acknowledged her as their OM (Other Mother). She passed away quietly at the Manitoulin Lodge Nursing Home in Gore Bay, Manitoulin Island on July 20, 2009 holding her granddaughter’s hand. She gave a lifetime of sound, common sense advice to her son Roderick (Rick) Lawrie McCutcheon (wife Julia) of Little Current, Manitoulin Island, and much loved grandchildren Duff Alexander McCutcheon (wife Aroni Ibrahim) of Toronto and Alicia Jane McCutcheon of Sheguiandah, Manitoulin Island together with great-grandsons Seamus McCutcheon and Amani McCutcheon of Toronto. At her specific request, funeral arrangements were limited to a family graveside committal service at Laurel Hill Cemetery, Bolton, Ontario. Arrangements by Egan Funeral Home, Bolton (905-857-2213). Condolences for the family may be offered at http://www.eganfuneralhome.com
