MILLER; Olive Gwendolyn (Johnson)
Ollie left us peacefully on April 20, 2016 at age 83, to be reunited with many loved ones predeceasing her: husband Rev. Al Miller (2001), parents Rev. Thomas & Louise Johnson, brothers Carman and Albert, sisters Margaret Jewell and Mae Barichello and her nieces Faye Barichello, Marianne Jewell. Ollie’s family delighted her to the end: children Debra (Mark), David, Heather (Ron), Holly (Terry), and grandchildren: Ryan, Lindsay, Sarah, Courtney and Caitlin, as well as step- grandchildren Charlotte, Julia and Jaimie. She leaves one great grandchild, Felicia, as well as her much beloved companion Larry Church.
Ollie’s friends and extended family span the globe and were a constant source of joy for her. She was an avid communicator and, no matter how distant, her friends were always close in spirit. Ollie’s spirituality encompassed multi beliefs and, along with her love of music and books, were the gathering-point of her community.
The family would like to thank Dr. W.G. Spangehl, the nurses at Peace Arch Hospital, and staff of Sunnyside Manor. Thanks also to dear friend Ursula for her devoted care. A Celebration of Ollie’s Life will be held Saturday, May 14, 2016 at 11am at Mount Olive
Lutheran Church, 2350 148th St. Surrey, BC. We ask that anyone attending wear something purple in honour of her favorite colour. In lieu of flowers (due to allergies), donations may be made to: Mount Olive Lutheran Church, or Habitat for Humanity. Condolences can be made to: www.victoryfuneralcentre.ca
