Mildred Marian Alberts
January 2nd, 1974 - October 30th, 2021
Surrounded by her family, a final kiss and “I love you”, our Mother, Mildred Marian Alberts passed away on October 30, 2021 at 97 years of age.
Mildred was born in Bridgeville, PA, USA on January 2, 1924, to Ambrose and Reatha Davies.
Mildred married the love of her life, Eddie Alberts, on December 19, 1949. They lived and farmed in the Colinton area for 47 years, raising their family and contributing to the community. Eddie passed away in 1996; Mildred continued to live on the family farm until 2004 when she moved to a condo in Athabasca. She loved her time in the condo and cherished the memories made there.
Due to health issues, Mildred moved to Pleasant Valley Lodge where she renewed old friendships and made new friends. Mildred often spoke of the staff at the Lodge, saying how they treated her like family.
When Covid hit, daughter Judy welcomed Mildred into her home, where she cared for her until her passing.
Eddie and Mildred were founding members of Athabasca Blue Heron Vocational training centre. Mildred served as secretary for Colinton Feeders Association for many years and was an active member of St. Andrews Church in Colinton.
When Mildred moved to Athabasca, she became involved with Ladies Auxiliary for Athabasca Healthcare Centre and assisted with the Reading program at WHPS school.
The most important thing in Mildred’s life was her family. She cherished the times spent with them, often reminiscing about travels with Eddie and later, with her sister Olive. She enjoyed talking about the fun times spent with her children and her grandchildren, camping, playing cards and having family gatherings.
Mildred is survived by her children: Janet (Bill), Judy, Ken (Susann), Linda (Tony), Bev and David, daughter-in-law Cecile and thirteen grandchildren, eighteen great-grandchildren and four great-great-grandchildren, sister-in-law Ann as well as numerous nieces, nephews and friends.
She was cremated and her ashes will be placed with Eddie’s during a Celebration of Life. Mildred’s family is comforted, knowing that she is reunited with Eddie and family that went before her.
