It is with deep sadness that the family of Madeline Milner announce her peaceful passing on Sunday, December 12, 2021, at the Drew Nursing Home following a period of declining health.

Maddie, as she was affectionately known, was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother who loved her family deeply. She was an amazingly strong woman, an excellent baker and homemaker who was able to stay in her beloved home until the age of 91.

Maddie will be dearly missed by her two sons, Kenneth "Buddy" (Linda) Trenholm, Sackville and Kevin (Kristey Hicks) Milner, Dieppe; a daughter, Janet (Mark) Saulnier, Moncton; five grandchildren, Tracy Trenholm, John Johnson, Kaitlyn & Kelsey Milner, and Leah Saulnier; three great grandchildren, Kayden, Noah, and Kalia;  two sisters, Betty Wheaton, Midgic, and Ruth Crossman, Sackville; her son-in-law, Eric Wheeler, Sackville; her sister-in-law, Lorraine (Donnie) Hicks, Sackville, as well as several nieces and nephews. 

Besides her parents, Maddie was predeceased by her first husband, Vaughan Trenholm; her second husband Frank Milner; her daughter, Dorothy Johnson, and her sisters Doris Estabrooks, Phyllis Jackson, and Thelma Tracy. 

The family wishes to thank the Chignecto Unit Staff of the Drew Nursing Home for their compassionate care of Maddie since March of 2020, as well as the Brunswick Unit Staff of the Sackville Memorial Hospital for their wonderful care from 2019 until 2020.

Arrangements are under the care and guidance of Jones Funeral Home, 70 Bridge Street, Sackville, NB (506-364-1300) from where visitation will be held on Wednesday, December 15, 2021 from 12 pm until the time of the funeral service at 1 pm.  Interment will follow in the Sackville Cemetery.
