John Robert Miller


1917 – 2011


On August 18, 2011 at the

age of 94, Robert passed

quietly into the arms of his

Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.  He will be sadly

missed by his wife Gertrude, step-daughters Margaret

(Don) McLellan and Susan Clark, step-grandchildren Sharalynn Clark, David (Emily) Clark, Trevor (Erin) McLellan, and Gina (Lucas) Morel, seven great-grandchildren, niece Lydia (Bill) Redden in Nova Scotia and many other nieces, nephews and cousins

across the country.  Robert was predeceased by his

parents, Burpee and Hattie Miller and his brothers Charlie and George.  Robert was born on the family farm in Upper

Stewiacke, NS.  He lived in that area for 44 years, doing farm work, logging, mill work and trucking.  In 1961 he moved with his widowed mother to the Okanagan to be

with family here.  Robert worked at Gorman’s mill and

then at Stewart Brothers’ Nursery until he retired in 1981. 

He devotedly cared for his mother until she passed away

at age 98.  As a 67 year old bachelor, he married the love

of his life, Trudy Black. They had 27 happy years together; they loved and cared for each other. The family thanks the staff at Joseph Benjamin Residence for the excellent care he has received over the past years.  Sincere thanks also

to the doctors and nurses of KGH – 4 East.  In lieu of

flowers, donations in Robert’s memory may be made to a missionary of your choice through MSC, 101 Amber Street, Unit 16, Markham, ON, L3R 3B2. 

A Memorial Service will be held on Tuesday, August 23, 2011 at 2:00 pm at the Highway Gospel Hall,

2549 Hebert Road, West Kelowna, BC.
