Mildred (Hunt) Tait passed away peacefully at Belvedere Heights on Friday, July 14th, 2023. Age 93 years.
Mildred is joining her loving husband Bob, who passed away in 2003. Dear sister of George, of Georgetown. Pre-deceased by her parents Mike and Annie Hunt, her sister Gloria Peel, and her brothers Roy and Lloyd Hunt. Mildred will be sorely missed by her children: Brian and his wife Susan of Parry Sound; Beth and her husband Norm, of Lindsay; and Rob and his partner Anthony, of Hurdville. Devoted and much-loved Grandma of 5, and ‘GG’ of 7, with another on the way. Mildred will be dearly missed by her special friend Marilyn Hurd.
Mildred was very active in the community for many years, volunteering and supporting many organizations including Belvedere Heights, where she worked, then volunteered after retirement, and then went to live out her final years.
Mildred’s family is forever grateful to the staff at Belvedere Heights for their exemplary care of their mother.
As was Mildred’s wish, cremation has taken place with a private family burial at a later date.
As expressions of sympathy, donations to Belvedere Heights (Resident’s Fund) would be appreciated.
Deepest, deepest Sympathies!-W. Ed Ewing
To Brian, Rob and the entire Tait family.
It's been almost 40 years now since Bob Tait and Cliff Cribbie built our cottage at Craigmore. We got to know Mildred and Bob so well - not only during the construction but over so many years of the store in Hurdville and even going back to the old Hurdville sawmill.
Bob would plow us out every winter with his big tractor and Mildred was always involved in every possible event, sale, and parade - we loved the Halloween Pumpkin Costume Rally Scavenger Hunts!
She was always so positive and happy.
It is the end of an era and Mildred will be missed. She leaves an amazing legacy and you should all be so proud.
Thank you for so many years of help, adventures, and great memories!

Peter and I are so sorry for your loss. We really enjoyed our times with Mildred and learned so much history from her. My favourite photo of her is as a Seguin Sarah that I took at the Church a few years back. Heartfelt condolences to the entire family and her many friends.-Joyce Hopkins
We are truly saddened at the news of the death of Mildred Tait. She was a dynamic lady who was a ball of fire and always willing to share her history of Hurdville and the iconic dam. We will truly miss her.
Our condolences to all of the family.

My sincere condolences to the family and the community. I have been coming up to Tait’s landing since I was a child, and Mrs. Tait was always there to offer a warm welcome and point me to the chip truck! She was a true institution and a kind and generous soul. May she rest in peace.-Julie MacArthur
Mrs Tait..never Mildred…has been part of my cottage life since the chip truck days. We bought her colourful pontoon boat and enjoyed it for years.
When I visited we would sit in the kitchen, drink white wine and laugh.
She had a long life, but not long enough for me.
Susan & Family...reads like she was a very special person..I offer you all my sincere condolences
I am so sorry to hear of Mildred’s passing. She was a great co-worker st Belvedere when I started as a teenager. She made each shift to be so much fun! Never any dull moments when Mildred was working. Marilyn, you cared for Mildred so well. She will be missed very much, but has left such a rich legacy for her family and community. I extend my sincere condolences. Donna-Donna Sohm
