Tri-County Vanguard - - OBITUARIES -

ROBERT­SON, Mil­lie Grace – our baby shark, mama’s bug and a brave heart war­rior, passed away peace­fully in the arms of her par­ents on May 2nd, 2018 at Emily’s House in Toronto, On­tario. She was sur­rounded by love, sun­shine, mu­sic, flow­ers and her lov­ing fam­ily. Mil­lie was born on De­cem­ber 23rd, 2016, in Toronto, On­tario to her par­ents Derek and Caro­line Robert­son. Dur­ing her short 16 months of life, she touched the hearts of many peo­ple and was loved deeply by fam­ily and friends. We were so blessed for the time spent with this mir­a­cle child. Known to her par­ents as the youngest Billy Joel fan, she en­joyed lis­ten­ing and danc­ing to all types of mu­sic. When she danced she would make the room sparkle. She al­ways would be calm and smile when her Daddy sang ‘ Piano Man’. De­spite so many health chal­lenges in her life, Mil­lie was com­pas­sion­ate, al­ways com­fort­ing mommy. She was such a brave lit­tle girl, go­ing through so many com­pli­cated med­i­cal pro­ce­dures, start­ing from in­side mommy’s womb to her fi­nal days, but al­ways had time to show her beau­ti­ful smile and love of life. Miss In­de­pen­dent, Mil­lie was de­ter­mined to do ev­ery­thing on her own, such as feed­ing her­self, tak­ing her med­i­ca­tions, get­ting dressed, and us­ing her Ipad. Mil­lie thrived and was so beau­ti­ful in­side and out with her bounc­ing curls, blue eyes and long thick eye lashes. Daddy will al­ways trea­sure the time he spent eat­ing and dunk­ing cook­ies with Mil­lie.

scope and re­spon­si­bil­ity and even­tu­ally Joe trans­ferred to a Di­rec­tor’s po­si­tion in Ot­tawa. This turned out to be his fi­nal post­ing and he re­tired in Ot­tawa in 2010 af­ter 35 years of loyal ded­i­cated ser­vice to the Fed­eral Gov­ern­ment of Canada. Trav­el­ling the world, al­ways learn­ing was a joy to him. Joe had a fab­u­lous mem­ory. He was an avid reader who al­ways had at least one novel on the go. His work ethic was be­yond re­proach and as a re­sult made a strong con­tri­bu­tion to the Cana­dian Fish In­spec­tion Pro­gram. He was a ded­i­cated Pub­lic Ser­vant who rep­re­sented the in­ter­ests of all Cana­di­ans both do­mes­ti­cally and in­ter­na­tion­ally. Dur­ing his ten­ure in Ot­tawa at the CFIA Joe was in­volved work­ing In­ter­na­tion­ally, where he par­tic­i­pated on projects with trade part­ner coun­tries and meet­ings with for­eign gov­ern­ment rep­re­sen­ta­tives and the food pro­cess­ing in­dus­try both in Canada and abroad.
