June 29, 2013 – Calgary, AB
Beatrice (Bea) Miller passed away June 29, 2013. She was born May 13, 1920 and grew up in southern Saskatchewan during the depression and drought. This triggered her great desire and dream to travel elsewhere someday, mainly to Edmonton and Calgary, Alberta along with Winnipeg, Manitoba. This accomplished, she met and then married Kenneth (Ken) Miller, in Calgary, where they had forty-two happy years together. They enjoyed many winter trips to Arizona and California, USA. Beatrice was predeceased by her husband, December 1, 1993. Beatrice discovered her dream job working at Henry Birks and Sons where she worked for fifteen years until retirement in 1984. Beatrice is survived by her daughter, Leslie and son-in-law William (Bill) Garries. She was blessed with two grandchildren, Barbara (Jordie) and Scott (Colleen). Barbara and Jordie Howes have two adorable children, Erika and William (Will). She is also survived by her brother Archie (Patricia) Nichol and brother Jerry Nichol and several nieces and nephews. Bea will be sorely missed and always treasured by her family and friends. Special thanks to the staff at Prince of Peace Manor.
