1963 ~ DONNA MILLER ~ 2021

After a long and courageous battle with cancer, it is with immense sadness that the family of Donna Caroline Miller has to announce her passing on August 26th, 2021. Donna was 58 years young and cherished her family. She defied doctors’ prognosis to spend every last day with those she loved. You would only have had to be in her presence for a minute to know that her strength to battle came from her strong faith in Jesus.

Donna was born on June 30th, 1963, in Maple Creek, Saskatchewan, to Chris and Thelma Lanz. She grew up as a country girl developing a love for horses. After coming to Alberta, and later in life settling in Medicine Hat, Donna met and married her soul mate, Dale James Miller. Together they blended two families and created many great memories. Most recently, in July, they celebrated their 32nd wedding anniversary.

Donna leaves so many to cherish her memory. She was a loving mother to Kelly (Natalia) Holt, Cory (Falynn) Holt, Chantelle (Ryan) Freed, Matthew Miller and Kenny Miller. She also had a special place in her heart for her stepchildren, Brandi Droeske and Jesse Miller. Along with her children, Donna is survived by her nine grandchildren, Skarlett, Kingston, Phoenix, Brenton, Ryland, Hawksley, Hendrix, Chase and Ali. Donna is also survived by her five siblings: Debbie (Larry) Malpass, Diane (John) Reid, Danelle (Glenn) Christman, and Darrel Lanz, as well as many nieces, nephews and in-laws. Donna fostered many meaningful relationships within the church and the community where she was known for her smile and a helping hand.

Donna had a strong passion for helping others and after working with the elderly at various retirement and nursing homes, she felt called to help those struggling with homelessness and addiction. She transitioned to a role at the Medicine Hat Resource Centre and later took on a management role there, always striving to help those struggling, to find peace. Donna’s passion for helping others was never fulfilled and she later became a Chaplain at the Medicine Hat Remand Center alongside her husband, Dale. With her time at the remand, she empowered many individuals to seek new beginnings and dedicated her time to support them through their transitions. In August of this year the remand dedicated the Chapel to Donna, formally naming it “The Donna Miller Chapel”.

Family! Donna’s most cherished value! Like many, Donna delighted herself in forming a family that she could care for. Donna instinctively was a true caregiver which ultimately led to her passion for helping others. Donna was the rock to her children and the glue to her blended family. Donna prided herself in always stressing the importance of family. She loved each grandbaby dearly and often said there was no greater role in this world then getting to be a grandmother. Her favored pastimes were taking the kids to swirls, chasing them in the park or sharing fruit snacks with them while watching “Paw Patrol”. Donna's love, moxie and memory will live on in each and every one of them.

Those wishing to pay their respects may do so at SAAMIS MEMORIAL FUNERAL CHAPEL, #1 Dunmore Road SE, Medicine Hat, AB on Thursday, September 2nd, 2021 from 6:00 to 9:00 pm and/or on Friday, September 3rd from 10:00 to 10:55 am.

TANIS BARBARA GARDEN

1938 ~ 2021

Our Mom and Grandma went to be with the Lord on Thursday, August 26, 2021. Mom was blessed with 83 beautiful years. She is adored and remembered by her children, Scott Garden (Judy; Savannah and Sierra) of Camas, Washington; Dana Bykowski (John; Elani and Janelle) of Lethbridge, AB; and Krista Bartman (Troy; Truman and Amaly) of Medicine Hat. Mom is also remembered and cherished by her brother, Bill Murray and his wife, Jan (and family) of Redvers, Saskatchewan. She was predeceased by her husband, Alistair; her parents, Edna and Syd Murray, and her brother, Scott.
Mom was born on March 9, 1938 in Redvers, Saskatchewan. She and her family lived above the family store, a building that still remains vital in the family today. Mom loved to draw, paint, play the piano, and she had a deep appreciation for literature and poetry. Mom graduated from the University of Saskatchewan as a Registered Nurse in 1959 and moved to Medicine Hat to begin her career. The friends she met during university and early in her career were held dear throughout her life. Mom and Dad met at a YM-YWCA dance in Calgary and they were married in 1963. She and our dad, Alistair, were married for 57 years before Dad passed away in 2020. While raising a family, Mom also began a life of active volunteering in our community. She was a quiet but important contributor to many organizations. She will be remembered for her time devoted to the Kinette Club, CGIT, WMS, Canadian Cancer Society, VON, Medicine Hat Christian Counselling, Rotary Club and the Rotary Music Festival. Mom always lived a healthy and active lifestyle and, for over 50 years, enjoyed being a member of the downtown YMCA. Along life’s way, Mom nurtured many friendships. She was also a dedicated member of St. John’s Presbyterian Church and served as a Sunday school teacher, Elder, and Choir member. Family and faith were deeply valued by our mom, and raising her children was the center of her life’s work. The pride and love she felt for her family radiated in her thoughts and deeds. We will miss her steady and loving presence so very much.
You are invited to join in the Celebration of Tanis’ life at St. John’s Presbyterian Church, 504 – 2nd Street S.E., Medicine Hat, Alberta on Friday, September 3, 2021, at 4:00 p.m. with Reverend Jeff Lackie officiating.
