    (Lamoureux Miller)
    Born February 11, 1922; passed on August 7, 2019. Mom was predeceased by her lovely sisters in Scotland and by her son Colin in 1981. She was also predeceased by her loving husband Henry Lamoureux and by second husband Murray Keyes. And by the many siblings and their spouses comprising Henry's family. She is survived by her daughters, Evelyn and Rhoda, and her son, Ian plus her daughter-in-law, Sandra and grandchildren, great- grandchildren and nieces and nephews too numerous to mention, both in Canada and Scotland. Mom was born in Dundee, Scotland, where she lived until being whisked away to Canada by Henry along with two very young children (Evelyn and Ian), to begin a new life in a completely unfamiliar country. Happily, she was warmly embraced by Henry's rather large family. Mom was a remarkable woman who lived an unremarkable life. It's likely fair to say that Mom never uttered an unkind word about anyone (even if deserved). We are very sorry to lose this special lady but we take comfort knowing that she was prepared to go and that we had her with us for longer than we ever thought possible. We are grateful for the care provided by St. Albert Retirement Residence, where Mom spent the last few months of her life. We are also immensely grateful to Dr. Sadia Shakil simply stated, the care and support she provided to Mom far exceeded what one could reasonably expect from a care provider. This note of remembrance could not conclude without expressing profound gratitude to Evelyn and Rhoda for the extraordinary devotion shown by both to Mom over the years. Rhoda, in particular, was tireless in helping attend to Mom's needs upon her relocation to St. Albert. Pursuant to Mom's wishes, and in keeping with her humble nature. There will not be a funeral service nor a celebration of life. Following Cremation her remains will be interred in the family plot in Lamoureux, Alberta.
