It is with great sadness that we announce that Melinda (Millie) Bell, born February 14, 1934, passed away peacefully with family by her side on July 15, 2023 at the Carman Memorial Hospital at the age of 89.

Left to mourn Millie are her children, Darlene (Mike) Fardy, Blake (Tamera) Bell, Rob (Janet) Bell; grandchildren, Jamie, Regan (Devon), Matthew (Kristine), Courtney, Tyler; great-grandchildren, Cole, Roczen, Landon and Parker. Also remembered by her brother and sister-in-law, Jack and Mary Hill; sisters-in-law, Doreen Hill, Ruth Wold and numerous nieces and nephews.

Millie was predeceased by her beloved husband Hugh of 52 years; her parents, Tom and Rose Hill; Hugh’s parents, Peter and Lillian Bell; sisters, Betty (Adelard) Barthelette, Barbara McCulloch; brothers, Bob Hill, Bill (Edna) Hill; sisters-in-law, Alice (Allie) McTavish, Mabel (Sterling) Amos, Edith Bell; brothers-in-law, Bob (Helen) Bell and Hermann Wold.

Millie was born in Winnipeg, MB. After she completed her schooling, she moved to Calgary for a short time and then in 1958 moved to Winnipeg where she worked as a Switch Board Operator at MTS. In 1959 Millie met her life partner Hugh and were married on April 2, 1960. After their wedding, Millie moved to Roland where her and Dad farmed and raised their family until retirement, then moved to Carman.

Millie was very involved with both Myrtle and Roland communities and was a long time 4-H leader with the Myrtle 4-H club. Mom enjoyed knitting, sewing and many other crafts. She especially loved making special quilts for each of her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. In her spare time she loved going to Bingo and especially enjoyed calling bingo at Monday afternoon bingo at Meadowood Estates. She also enjoyed watching sporting events of her children and grandchildren.

Mom, you will always be deeply loved, sadly missed and always remembered as a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and friend. We will wrap ourselves tighter in our quilts and forever cherish the memories.

The family would like to thank the staff at Carman Memorial Hospital for their wonderful and compassionate care that mom received.

Cremation has taken place. In respecting Mom’s wishes, there will be no formal funeral. A private family graveside service will be held at Fairview Cemetery, Roland, MB.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Carman Memorial Hospital Palliative Care, Box 610, Carman, MB R0G 0J0.
