MILLER, Doreen Elizabeth
May 13, 1940 — April 29, 2018
Doreen Elizabeth Miller went to join her father and mother and all those who went before her on April 29, 2018 at the age of 77. She is survived by her loving husband James; daughter Michele (Daniel); grand dogs: Baxter, Zoe, Pepper; sisters Nancy, Esther (Norman); brother Ken (Pat). Predeceased by her father John; mother Dora; brother Arnold (Evelyn).
Born in Edmonton in 1940, moving to Kelowna in 2002, she lived a full and happy life with her husband Jim of 58 years, daughter Michele; many sisters, brothers, nieces, nephews and more friends who were like family.
She always put everyone else first; cooking, baking and serving everyone her special treats. She wanted to be remembered as ‘The Cabin Girl’ for those who knew her love of Wabamun and Mercoal.
Everyone whose lives she touched, knows her kind and caring ways and sweet sense of humour. She worried more about those she was leaving behind than her own suffering. This extended to her family, friends and medical staff who cared for her. Thank you, Julia, the doctors and staff at the renal clinic, and Dr. Thomasse for her years of care.
We thank those who cared for her in her last days at KGH, especially the staff of the 2 west who showed professionalism, honour and compassion in making her last days comfortable and meaningful.
A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to The Kidney Foundation of Canada www.kidney.ca or the Charity of Choice.
