Mildred Gail Eger

December 15, 1944

July 23, 2023

Micki Eger, a resident of Calgary, AB, passed away on July 23, 2023, after a valiant battle with Pancreatic Cancer. Born in Saskatoon, SK, Micki attended Nutana Collegiate Institute and the University of Saskatchewan. She married the late Garth Eger in Saskatoon in 1966 and the couple eventually settled in Calgary.

Micki found great pride and joy in her family and friends, always offering unwavering support to those she held dear. One of her favorite traditions was hosting bi-weekly dinners with her son and his family, as well as frequent gatherings with friends. These cherished moments were a testament to Micki’s boundless love and care. Known for her wisdom, fairness, and sharp sense of humor, she also had a passion for travel, which she passed on to her children. Micki was a talented cook, seamstress, and crafter. She excelled in bowling and curling and dedicated many years as a volunteer for Canadian Blood Services. Throughout her 33-year tenure at Mount Royal College, Micki earned the trust and friendship of her colleagues, valuing the companionship of friends from all walks of life. Her light will forever shine, reminding us of the importance of family, friendship, perspective, and laughter.

Micki leaves behind her beloved children, Janet and David, as well as her grandchildren Megan and Ben. Also mourning her loss are her brother Glenn Cox, brother-in-law Cameron Eger, and nieces Charlene Eger and Lana (Sami) Shenouda, along with nephew Bryce (Terri) Eger and their extended families. She was predeceased by her parents, Elsie and Mervyn Cox.

The family would like to express their heartfelt gratitude to the compassionate physicians, nurses, and staff of Unit 47 at Rockyview General Hospital for their exceptional care. Memorial donations can be made to Canadian Blood Services in Micki’s memory.

A Celebration of Life will be held on September 16, 2023, from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. at McInnis & Holloway (Park Memorial, 5008 Elbow Drive SW, Calgary, AB). Condolences, memories, and photos can be shared and viewed on the website http://www.MHFH.com. In honor of Mildred Gail Eger, a tree will be planted in the Ann & Sandy Cross Conservation Area.
