Adams Mildred SQ.jpgIt is with great sadness the family announces the passing of Mildred Lydia Adams (Snarr) of Manitou, formerly of Morris, on September 11, 2009 at 84 years of age at Boundary Trails Health Centre after a lengthy illness.

She was predeceased in 2003 by her husband Andy, her parents Charles and Anne Snarr, brother Leslie and her sister Marion Coleman.
She is survived by and mourning her loss are son Glenn, daughter Jacqui (Robert) Halloran and two grandchildren Matthew and Chelsey Halloran of Boissevain. She will be sadly missed by sister-in-law Joy Snarr, brother-in-law Gerald Coleman (Irene) and her nieces, nephews, cousins, and many friends.
Mildred was born in Morris, MB November 18, 1924 to parents Charles and Anne Snarr. She received her education in Morris attending Carleton School and took her high school by correspondence. She chose teaching as her career, totaling 17 years. Her teaching started with permit teaching which took her to several areas of Manitoba, namely “Post Road School” Emerson, “West Curtis School” near Portage La Prairie. She then attended Normal School, receiving her teacher certificate and taught in Rosebank, Calf Mountain, Midland and Darlingford.

In 1962 she married Andy Adams in a double wedding ceremony in Morris United Church with sister Marion and Gerald.
Mildred began a new career as farm wife homemaker and later a mother. She applied her same expertise and enthusiasm she had given to her teaching. Mildred had strong work ethics, held fast to her beliefs and convictions.

She enjoyed company and her doors were always open, the coffee pot was soon on and she appreciated the fellowship, and who couldn’t enjoy her specialty “lemon pie” made from scratch.

Mildred loved the country, the farm, her flowers, her hens, all birds, but especially owls (her house houses a collection) and she had a tender spot for all animals.
She was a long time member of the Manitou Horticulture Society. 

Mildred was a great corresponder - birthdays, anniversaries of her family or friends seldom escaped her attention. Her gifts were beautifully wrapped and signed with excellent penmanship. She had correspondence with pen-pals and she kept a daily diary.

She loved her home and wanted to remain there as long as she was able. This was made possible because Glenn was there for her.
Funeral Service for Mildred was held September 16, 2009 at 2 o’clock in Manitou United Church with Rev. Laurie Simpson officiating.
Donations in her memory may be sent to Boundary Trails Health Centre or a charity of one’s choice.
