Condolonences from the Mills family
A bit of background and history relating to Edith.
Edith, at the age of 34, was part of a select group of employees who worked for Chadwick Carrol Brass & Fixtures in Hamilton that upon closing went to work for John H. Mills who, in the fall of 1959, established Metal Industries. Machinery, equipment & inventory was moved from the Chadwick factory on Adams Street a few short blocks west to the old Canada Bread building on Ashley Street. Edith had gained a variety of experience and skills at Chadwick that enabled her to make a major contribution to Metal Industries who manufactured custom lighting fixtures.
Eventually Metal Industries expanded it's foot print at the 99 Ashley Street location specializing in residental & commerical lighting & electrical supplies under the operating name of MILLS LIGHT HOUSE. Edith eventually retired in 1970. Edith is the last of that select group of people who made that move back in 1959.
