Milnor is a wonderful person. I first met her when I rented a suite in the same 1929 home in which she lived, in Victoria's Cook Street Village.
We soon became close friends--me being just across the hall from her. There were many visits and long, engaging conversations about a range of topics, including politics, human rights, simple decency toward one another, and many more.
Those conversations continued even after she and I moved to different locations--Milnor across the street, and me about five miles away. We still got together a few times a month for these conversations over a glass of wine or two. Books, opera, art and people--no end to the topics, all infused with Milnor's strong insight and care about people and life.
I still have some books that Milnor gave to me, and they help me remember her, although I need no help with that.
For any of Milnor's friends or colleagues reading this, know that your love and influence was with her. She spoke often of people she has known, things she's experienced, places she had been, and how they shaped her and her views.
I am so thankful to know Milnor.
I miss you, my friend.

Only today (Dec 24) learned of Milnor's passing. Milnor was a wonderful teacher and a mentor to me when I went back as a mature student in 1973 to the U of R. She will live forever in my memory as a wonderful woman role model and a kind, caring teacher.

Milnor will be remembered fondly by her colleagues from her years teaching Political Science at the University of Regina. She will also be remembered by friends in Saskatchewan for her work in the women's movement, the peace movement and other progressive causes. We always enjoyed our lunches with Milnor whenever we were in Victoria.

Milnor was a resident at the glensheil where my small group of daycare children visited every Thursday. Milnor was very fond of the children and made a particular connection with a sweet natured toddler named Katie. They both took much enjoyment in their time together over milnor's last few months at the glensheil. She is missed.

Milnor was our roommate in Hospice and we enjoyed her gentle, kind spirit. Our thoughts and best wishes are with you Milnor, as you travel this path.

Milnor was a generous donor to dance, music and theatre endeavours around Victoria, and a staunch feminist and pacifist. I enjoyed apples from her trees...and her company. She will be missed.
