Fusako “Pat” Miller
Fusako “Pat” Miller, 81, passed away peacefully on September 28, 2013 after a brief illness. Pat was born in Union Bay, BC on January 18, 1932. In 1942 she was part of the evacuation of the Japanese during the Second World War to Greenwood, BC. Following the end of the war, Pat remained in Greenwood with her family until she finished high school. Pat married and eventually relocated to Red Deer in 1961 and to Ponoka in 1963 where she remained until her passing. Pat was a vibrant and contributing member in the community of Ponoka which she called home for over 50 years. She was a secretary for the Ponoka Elementary School from 1966 until her retirement in 1990. Following retirement, she enjoyed travelling and visited many regions in Canada and a number of cities and countries abroad and overseas. At home, she was fastidious in her attention to her garden and yard, took great pleasure in cooking and sharing meals, and playing cards with her many friends. She lived a full and engaging life, and appreciated every moment to its fullest. She will be greatly missed by her family, and all who knew her and were touched by her acts of generosity and benevolence. Pat is survived by her three sons and their families: Dr. Harry and Carrie Miller (Cylee); Ken and Joan Miller (Cole and Logan, and great grandson, Bentley); and Dale and Tammy Miller (Brandon and Sean). A Service of Remembrance will be held at the Ponoka United Church on Monday October 21, 2013 at 2:30 pm. A reception will be held after the service at the Ponoka Legion. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Ponoka Drop-In Center. To express condolences to Pat’s family, please visit www.womboldfuneralhomes.com.
