Obituary for Mildred "Mille" Evelyn Maude Gunn

In loving memory of Mille Gunn, daughter of Reg and Evelun (Gritt) Pitts, died peacefully on May 5, 2018 at the age of 79 in the VG Site, QEII, Palliative Care Unit. Mille had a fulfilling life working at Cossor of Canada, Klines and Sears as well as raising and supporting an energetic family. She was a gifted artist and interior decorator which was admired and enjoyed by family and friends. Mille was a passionate gardener who enjoyed connecting with nature, working in her gardens to create beauty for all to see. her willingness to help others extended to the holidays where there were always family and friends gathered to enjoy copious amounts of food along with plenty of witticisms and laughter around the dinner table. Milles love and compassion for animals was unsurpassed with dogs and cats in the household throughout her lifetime. her generous, caring, and witty personality was loved by all that were close to including her wonderfully dry sense of humour. Mille is survived by her loving husband, Dave of 59 years, and children, Paul and Lynn (Bill), as well as caring and devoted friends, Rene and Nicola. She is also survived by her brother, Wayne Pitts, and sisters, Lorraine Bailey and Cheryl Driscoll. The family would like to express their sincere gratitude to the staff of 3A and 7A mat the VG Site, QEII for their compassion and professionalism. A closed memorial service will be held at a later date for family and close friends. In lieu of flowers, please send a donation to the Canadian Cancer Society, Diabetes Canada or the Epilepsy Foundation of Nova Scotia. Cremation has taken place under the care and direction of Donald K. Walker Funeral Directors Ltd. Dartmouth, NS

When you closed your eyes and soared to the Heavens, I could hear the faint flutter of your wings as you left. --- Author Unknown

Lynn, after knowing you in High School (attending 3 fun filled years !) I worked with your Dad for quite some time at the Police Dept. Like you, he's a character and he contributed to some good memories. I'm sooooo sorry for your loss. I lost my Mom 7 years ago. Stay strong, stick together with family, and no doubt you'll honour your Mom by supporting each other and living well My thoughts and prayers are with you. Judi Carman
