BILLINGTON, Mildred "Millie"
The Chronicle Herald, Halifax, January 4, 2007
BILLINGTON, Mildred "Millie"
- 91, Halifax, passed on in the New Halifax Infirmary, QEII, on December 30, 2006. Born in Lynn, Mass., she was a daughter of the late Mary Dalton (Newfoundland) and Harry Moorfoot (England). As a teenager, Millie moved with her family to Mulgrave. She eventually fell in love and married Ernest "Ernie" Moreash, Halifax. Shortly after welcoming a bouncing baby boy to this young family, they moved to Halifax. They eventually settled in Spryield where they both became very active members of the community. Millie spoke recently about the time her family helped clear the land on which to build Emmanuel Church in Spryfield. Millie and Ernie bred and showed boxer dogs for several years. Throughout her adult life, she was involved in the active work of local animal rescue groups. Her interest in and concern for animals continued to the end.

She was very involved in the work of the Eastern Star until she lost her dear husband, Ernie, to cancer in 1962. This was a blow which led her to taking a new direction in life. She became a ward clerk on 8A at the original VG Hospital. Here she enjoyed her work and the staff, making lifelong friendships. In 1974 she married Charles "Charlie" Billington. They shared a love of dancing, traveling and animals.

Millie enjoyed her role as grandmother - threefold, often going to Switzerland to visit them. Her grandchildren thought she was a "cool" grandmother because of her sense of fun and lively personality! Years later, she welcomed a great-grandaughter. Throughout the years, she and Charlie looked forward to many visits by Kelsea and Lauren Black from the neighbourhood. The girls also enjoyed walking the dogs!

Sadly, she lost her husband, Charlie, suddenly, in 200l. This reduced her joy in life but she was determined to stay on in her home, with her pets, which she did. Millie had strong opinions, which were steadfast, and could be uncomfortably frank. However, to be on her "good side" could prompt a showering of homemade goodies and help whenever needed.

She will be missed by many. She is survived by her son, Ken (Rosalie) Moreash; her grandchildren, Nicole (Yves) Moreash Lalonde, Halifax; Bill (Annette) Moreash, Moncton; and Krista Moreash, Halifax; her great-grandaughter, Jasmine Moreash, Halifax. She was predeceased by sister, Ethel, in Halifax; two half-sisters and five half-brothers in the States, all of whom she was close to during their lives. Cremation has taken place under the care of J.A. Snow Funeral Home, 2666 Windsor St., Halifax, where visitation will be on Friday, January 5, from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. A memorial service will be held in Snow's Chapel at 2 p.m. on Saturday, January 6, Rev. Jane Clattenberg, from Millie's Church, St. Peters Anglican Church, Rockingham, will lead us in celebrating Millie's life. No flowers please. Private family burial will follow in Camp Hill Cemetery. Donations may be made to Bide Awhile Animal Shelter, 12 Eaton Ave., Dartmouth, NS B2Y 2X5.

Special thanks to many who gave Millie friendship and support over the years, especially after the loss of her husband. Special thanks to Jill, Mike, Kelsea and Lauren Black, Anna and Gerry LeBlanc and family, Mimi and Todd Murray and family, all neighbours who looked out for Millie; to Steve Neil, her man "Friday" for keeping her garden up and removing her snow, PLUS!, the staff at Pharmasave, Rockingham, her much admired and appreciated pharmacist, now at Shoppers, Young Street, John Burgess, the T.D. Staff on Lacewood, Leslie and Trina of Sher f Hair Design, Bayers Lake, who went "beyond the call of duty" for many recent years; and to the staff at Clayton Vet Clinic, especially Dr. Abrahms. Very special thanks to the staff on 8.4 at QEII Health Science Centre, for dedicated and highly professional care. E-mail condolences to:

Cancer Is So Limited It cannot cripple love. It cannot shatter hope. It cannot corrode faith. It cannot kill friendship. It cannot suppress memories. It cannot silence courage. It cannot invade the soul. It cannot steal eternal life. It cannot conquer the spirit. It could never make us forget those we love. Jerry Cole
