Obituary of Carol Bonita Miller
Words cannot express our profound sadness at the sudden passing of our beloved mother on Wednesday March 23, 2022 at the age of 90. Born in Halifax, Nova Scotia on December 31, 1931. Daughter of the late William and Rita (Carmichael) Morton. Dearly loved wife and best friend of 62 years to the late Carmen “Jack” Miller (2016).
Loving and treasured mother of Heather Miller, Kim (David) Boismier, Michael (Sharon), Dawn (Sammy) Myers & Jackie (Alan) Labadie all of Chatham. Cherished grandmother of Carmen (Linda) Boismier, Brandy (Tim) Dezan, Stephanie Miller (Richard), Mitchell, Amanda, and Stefan Miller and Taylor and Sydney Labadie. Beloved great-grandmother of seven. Dear sister of Marion Morton of Windsor, Nova Scotia.
She will be sadly missed by sisters-in-law Diane Miller of Chatham and Janet Murdock of California, as well as her loving fur baby Jiggs.
Predeceased by her brother Ken Morton, brother-in-law Robert “Bob” Miller and sister-in-law Carol (Al) Horvath.
Carol grew up in Halifax, Nova Scotia and left home at the age of 17 to work at the historic Nova Scotian Hotel in Halifax. Carol loved to dance and spent most evenings at the dance hall where she met the love of her life, Carmen (Jack) Miller, a Seaman in the Royal Canadian Navy. They wed after a short 3 month courtship and soon started a family, deciding to return to Ontario where Jack’s family was to raise their children. Carol was a devoted wife, mother, and grandmother whose family were her pride & joy, her favourite times were times spent with family. Her and Jack loved the horse races and spent many vacations at the race track. She loved to decorate her home for every season and holiday, loved to garden, was an avid reader (biographies her favourite), and loved crosswords and scrabble.
In keeping with Carol’s wishes, cremation has taken place and a private family service will follow.
Friends planning an expression of remembrance are asked to consider the Chatham-Kent Hospice Foundation or the Pet and Wildlife Rescue (PAWR).
