(1925-2013) In her thirties In her seventies
Marjorie Mills (who was the classical painist Marjorie Muter) died this week on Wednesday, January 16 at 4 p.m., of a massive blood clot in her left lung, some time following a severe accident. Marjorie was the wife of Canadian basso and composer David Mills, and she toured internationally with him as his accompanist.
Born in Quebec City on June 12, 1926, she was the daughter of Major Fred Mutter and Hazel Campbell. Major Mutter served with the Canadian Armed Forces in two World Wars. As a recording artist Marjorie recorded for Quality Records of Canada, Master Recordings and Gemstone Records. She also made two concert tours of Canada, and together with her husband they presented a program of compositions that consisted entirely of works by Canadian Composers. It was often remarked on that she never seemed to grow older year by year and her many pictures reveal that point.
She is survived by her husband (David Mills) a brother (Kenneth Mutter) a brother-in-law and two sisters-in-law (Marion Mills and Dorothy Mutter). A Funeral Service will be held at the MORLEY BEDOFRD FUNERAL HOME, 159 Eglinton Ave. W (2 stoplights west of Yonge ST.), on Tuesday, January 22, 2013 at 1 p.m. Reception to follow. Private interment Mount Pleasant Cemetery.
