MILLER, Nancy Miller - On October 12th, at age 90, Nancy passed away peacefully in her sleep after a long life, well-lived.
She was the cherished daughter of John and Lorraine (nee Tod) Burns….the beloved wife of Bob Miller for 67 years….the devoted mom for Ann, Jim and John Miller and mother-in-law to Kim Miller (Jim’s wife) and Tiffany Punnett (John’s wife)….the loving grandmother to Thomas, Cameron and Evan Miller….and the adored sister of Diana Devoll (nee Burns).
Born in Oshawa, May 20, 1932, Nancy grew up in a loving household on 62 Connaught St.
After attending University of Toronto, she began a career in Physiotherapy, and shortly thereafter, married Bob and settled into a vibrant and ever-changing life.
In the course of raising her three children, she always found time to give to others, her community while still engaging in her own passions.
From gardening at the Solina farmhouse, attending opera in Toronto, continuing her studies at U of T, spending family time at the Mountain Lake cottage or just relaxing with her cherished newspaper on Saturday mornings, she was always active.
Involved in many aspects of the community, her service included extensive volunteer work at St George’s Church, McLaughlin Art Gallery, LACAC and decades of Durham Meals on Wheels deliveries.
But it was with all whom she encountered, where maybe she made her biggest and longest lasting impact.
Always positive and engaged, friends and strangers alike were touched by her deep and genuine interest in them.
While Nancy will be dearly missed by her family and many friends, her legacy of kindness and respect will live within all for years to come.
A Memorial Service will take place at St. George’s Anglican Church on Friday, October 21, 2022 at 11 a.m. with visitation from 10 a.m.
If desired, donations can be made to St George's Anglican Church or the Nature Conservancy of Canada.
