1931 ~ 2013

On April 28, 2013 Clifford Kenneth Miller of Belair, Manitoba, husband of Pauline, passed away.

In addition to his wife of 57 years, he is survived by his daughter Rhonda and son-in-law Dan Smith of Thunder Bay, ON; son Darren and Anya Hofmann of Winnipeg; and daughter Heather Dram of Belair.  He also leaves his beloved grandchildren: Joshua and Rebecca Smith, Chelsea and Zachary Dram, Jamie Miller, and Patrick and Evan Hofmann.  In addition, he leaves his sister-in-law Dini Miller of Rockglen, SK, sister-in-law and brother-in-law Margaret and Allan Nelson of Regina, SK, as well as numerous nieces and nephews.

Cliff was predeceased by his parents William and Anna Miller, brothers: Wilmer, Raymond, and Wallace; sister Pearl; brother-in-law John Garvin; and sisters-in-law: Donna Miller and Cicely Miller.

Cliff was born December 31, 1931 at Rockglen, Saskatchewan and grew up on the family farm at Lisieux, Saskatchewan.  He attended high school at the Lutheran Collegiate Bible Institute in Outlook, Saskatchewan.

He joined the Bank of Toronto in Assiniboia, Saskatchewan in 1950, and was employed in various capacities for over 36 years, residing in Regina, Winnipeg, Selkirk, and Thunder Bay.  He retired to his cottage in 1986.  It was while in Regina that he met the love of his life, Pauline (nee Crosson) in 1955.

The Lutheran Church played an important part in Cliff’s life.  He was an active member and leader in the church in all of the communities in which he resided.  He enjoyed singing and was a choir member and soloist for over 65 years.  He served as Treasurer of the Manitoba/Northwestern Ontario Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada, as well as Treasurer of Luther Village.  He also belonged to a number of service clubs, and was recently President of the Senior Scene, Victoria Beach.  Volunteerism was a way of life for Cliff.

A celebration of Cliff’s life was held at Trinity Lutheran Church, Thalberg at 1:30 p.m. on Friday, May 3, 2013 with interment in the church cemetery.  Pastor Mark Koenker officiated.

Donations in Cliff’s memory may be made to the Memorial Fund of Trinity Lutheran Church, Thalberg.

Thanks go to the many health care professionals involved in Cliff’s fight with cancer, our neighbours who were always available to help out, the HELP Centre at the Senior Scene who arranged for drivers for the various appointments and treatments, and the drivers and helpers.  We could not have done everything without all of you.

Condolences for the family of “Clifford Kenneth Miller”

Condolence from Scott Nicholson on May 1st, 2013 10:31 am

Pauline and family,

My sincerest condolences at this time of loss. I never got to work with Cliff when I first met him in Thunder Bay but he was there as a mentor when I needed someone for support. I have always admired him as a person and as banker. He left an positive immpression on everyone he encountered and I tried to model myself after him in my manager roles.

Even in today’s banking world there isn’t a person that hasn’t benefited by their opportunity to have got to know or have worked with him. My thoughts and prayers are with you and family and know he will live on through all that were blessed to have known him.


Scott Nicholson

Condolence from Lorne & Mildred Parker on May 3rd, 2013 7:25 pm

Dear Pauline & Family,
Many years ago Lorne enjoyed curling with Cliff which was a fun experience with many laughs. Whenever we met you folks in Selkirk Cliff always had a story to tell & gave us a smile. Our thoughts are with you at this time & we know your many fond memories will give you strength now & in the time ahead. We will surely miss him.
Perhaps they are not the stars, but rather openings in Heaven where the love of our lost ones pours through and shines down upon us to let us know they are happy. Unknown

And what is it to cease breathing, but to free the breath from its restless tides, that it may rise and expand and seek God unencumbered.
Only when you drink from the river of silence shall you indeed sing.
And when you have reached the mountain top, then shall you begin to climb
And when the earth shall claim you limbs, then shall you truly dance.
Kahlil Gibran

Lorne and Mildred Parker
