Personal Notes:
Mother Clara McMillan spent a lot of her time baking around the holidays for her children and grandchildren. She would cover her kitchen table with all sorts of packaged cookies for everyone so whenever they stopped in they could choose a package to take home. This took a lot of Clara's time and energy as she walked to the stores in the Soo area. Later in years as it became more difficult for her to make these trips she often had her son Ron do the shopping list so she could keep on baking. Clara was 90 years old when she left us. Baking was one of her great enjoyments and a lovely memory for us all.
In Memory Of Clara McMillan
