1920 – 2019
Millie Bayliss passed away peacefully on Sunday April 14, 2019 at Tabor Home in Morden, MB.
Millie was born on January 10, 1920 in Winnipeg, and her family farmed at Caliento until 1929 when they moved to Emerson for better farmland. She attended the West Lynne school. Millie married Robert Sanders, had one son Michael Allen and Robert passed away in 1951. Millie later moved back home to the family farm in Emerson to care for her widowed mother. She worked hard to provide food and an income for them, raised animals and grew a large garden. She and her mother spent their long winter nights sewing, knitting and quilting. In 1970, Millie married Lawrence Bayliss and in 1983 they moved to Morden. Millie and Lawrence enjoyed life in Morden, playing cards and socializing with the neighbours. She continued quilting, baking and tending her large vegetable and flower gardens. Lawrence passed away in 1993. Millie became an active member of St. John the Evangelist Roman Catholic Church and had many good friends in the congregation. She helped make perogies as a fundraiser to build the new church “one perogy at a time.” She also volunteered at Tabor Home for 15 years. Millie moved into Tabor Home in 2010, but never lost her sense of humor or her independent spirit.
Millie was predeceased by her parents, Metro and Anastasia (Gadomski) Krul, a brother and sister in infancy, sisters, Helen (Carl) Bondi, Ann (Bill) Pretty, Pauline (Glen) Gordon, brother, Bill Turner, Margaret (Dave) Kelner, Isabel Campbell, Cathy (Delbert) Outhouse, niece, Diane Robertson and son, Michael.  She is survived by sisters, Rose (Frank deceased) Rogers and Doris Ross, brother-in-law, Don Campbell and sister-in-law Nancy Turner. She is also survived by daughter-in-law, Norma Sanders, granddaughters, Heather Sanders and Joanne Sanders (Jason Howden), grandson, Michael Sanders (Janene Shearer), and great granddaughters, Madisyn Pauls, Natalie Sanders and many nieces and nephews. The family would like to express their gratitude to all the wonderful friends, neighbours and especially the staff at Tabor Home who were so caring towards Millie.
