1943 - 2003

The family of Sylvia Miller, beloved wife of David Miller, sadly announces her sudden passing Tuesday, April 29, 2003 at the Grace General Hospital.

Sylvia was predeceased by her mother, Helen Schellenberg (nee Breyfogle) in 1991 and by her father, Donald Smith in 1995. Sylvia will be lovingly remembered and dearly missed by her husband, David, her best friend and companion of 40 years; stepfather Bill Schellenberg; stepmother Joyce Smith; sister Dawn-Ellen Smith; brothers, David (Maureen) of Red Deer, Alta., and Rick (Janet) of Marchand, Man.; sisters-in-law, Dolly Saltasuk, Sylvia Miller, and Suzanne Blondeel (Pat); brothers-in-law, Bob and Lenore Miller; George Miller (Mary Ann), James Miller (Mary Lynne), William Miller (Bernadette), and Jerrold Miller; stepsisters, Wanda Schellenberg, Sandy Klassen (Brian), Carol Loewen (Fred), and Shirley Rempel (Don); stepbrothers, Curtis Schellenberg (Adina), Kelly Schellenberg (Sandra), Barry Schellenberg (Dianne), Dale Schellenberg (Julie), John Schellenberg (Laurel), and Don Schellenberg (Faye); many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and friends.

All who knew Sylvia remembered her. With her long career at the Bank of Montreal of 41 years, she is well known in the Winnipeg community. She enjoyed being active in anything she was involved in, usually volunteering her time to any cause she felt needed her. She was a long-time board member for Harstone United Church and church treasurer. Recently, she was the president of the Agape Villa Residents Association for two years. Bowling was her sport and Wednesday and Friday nights you knew that you could find her at Empress Lanes. Unless of course, they were in Hawaii, or Jamaica, or Europe. Travel was her passion and she lived for her month-long stays in Hawaii. She was meant to have been born on a beach.

Sylvia grew up and lived on the family farm in Otterburne, Man. and later lived with her mother at her grandfather Breyfogle's dairy farm at Union Point. She moved to Winnipeg, Man. in 1960, where she met Dave. They married on a beautiful day on Oct. 6, 1962. They were blessed with the companionship of four wonderful cats over the years: Condor, Missy, Puff, and will be missed by Snoops.

Sylvia's hearty laugh was always heard at every gathering she attended. She loved to be with family and friends, days at the cottage or just a time spent having tea with her friends. Her generous heart and caring spirit is her legacy to us all.

Special thanks to Dr. Oscar Domke and the staff at the Emergency and Observation Units of the Grace General Hospital.

A memorial service celebrating Sylvia's life was held at 3 p.m., Monday, May 5, 2003 at the Windsor Park United Church, 1062 Autumnwood Dr., Winnipeg. A family interment was held at Chapel Lawn, 4000 Portage Ave.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Manitoba Heart and Stroke Foundation, Suite 200 6 Donald Street, Winnipeg, MB R3L 0K6.

Don't think of her as gone away - her journey's just begun;

Life holds so many facets - this earth is only one.

Just think of her as resting from the sorrows and the tears;

In a place of warmth and comfort where there are no days and years.

Think how she must be wishing that we could know, today.

How nothing but our sadness can really pass away.

And think of her as living in the hearts of those she touched...

For nothing loved is ever lost - and she was loved so much.

Arrangements entrusted to Chapel Lawn Funeral Home Cemetery And Crematorium.
