Ethel Helen Miller – 92, Truro, formerly of Saint John, New Brunswick, passed away peacefully at home on Sunday, January 16, 2022.

She was a giving woman who would help those in need any way she could.

Ethel Helen Miller Career

Music was one of her passions, as well as dancing, which is where she met her husband, Gerry; together they belonged to a square dancing club. She attended many musical performances from amateur to professional, including traveling to see the Oberammergau Passion Play in Germany. She belonged to The Happy Harmonies senior singing group as well as The Sanford Singers at Wallace Living where she last resided. She took up a painting class in her later years and revisited that enjoyment again. Despite her petite stature she was a strong woman.

Her early years as a mother were frequently solo raising four boys, as Gerry traveled with work. As the boys grew she took a part-time job as a seamstress, which was her vocation. Later, Ethel worked at the Truro hospital in the laundry department utilizing those skills again. She was also a rock in the wake of her husband’s passing.
Ethel was predeceased by her beloved husband, Gerald “Gerry” Miller; sister, Florence Bond; mother, “Nellie” Allaway (Russell).
