Millicent Flemming

With deep sadness, the passing of Millicent Flemming is announced. Millicent peacefully entered the presence of her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, on Thursday, October 26, 2023, at Shannex Tucker Hall. She was born in Fredericton, New Brunswick, on September 12, 1920, to her parents A. M. and Florence Esson.

Millicent spent her childhood in Campbellton, New Brunswick, maintaining lifelong contact with her beloved “gang” from Campbellton. After completing high school, she attended Normal School (Teachers College) for one year before enrolling in the Ottawa Civic General Hospital Nursing Program. Millicent excelled in her studies and graduated first in her class in 1944. Returning to Fredericton, she accepted a nursing position and served as the head surgical nurse for Dr. Everett Chalmers. Millicent embarked on a new journey when she met and married Hugh John Flemming Jr, leaving her nursing career to raise her family. Ultimately, she settled in Saint John, where she found joy in her unwavering dedication to her faith, family, and friends.

Millicent is survived by her children: Barbara Cormier (Clarence), Hugh (Ted) Flemming (Nancy), and Peter Flemming (Lynn). She is also mourned by her cherished sister, June Esson Weeks, and her nephew, Sandy Weeks. Her passing leaves a void that will be felt by her beloved grandchildren: Cynthia Cormier, Daniel Cormier, Jonathan Flemming (Jamie), Sarah Flemming (Luke), Heather Kelly (Craig), Jennifer Brown (Bradley), Elizabeth Flemming (Nicholas Ouellette), Catharine Simpson (Colin), and James Flemming (Kayla). Additionally, Millicent is survived by her great-grandchildren: Hugh, Adam and Emily Flemming, Clara, William and Emily Brown, Ethan, Madeline and Caleb Simpson, Henry and Millie Flemming, Nathan and Natalie Kelly. She will be missed by all those whose lives she touched throughout her lifetime.

The family would like to extend their heartfelt appreciation to Homecare by Design and the staff of Tucker Hall. Special thanks are also given to Elaine Kingston for providing exceptional care to Millicent.

A visitation will be held on Wednesday, November 1, 2023, at Brenan’s Funeral Home, 111 Paradise Row, Saint John, NB (634-7424) starting at 9:30 AM. A Christian Funeral Service will follow the visitation at 11 AM, taking place at the Brenan’s Funeral Home Chapel, with a reception to follow at Brenans.
