The Mary Miller Memorial Fund was created in loving memory of Mary Miller.
Mary’s positive attitude, witty sense of humour, faith, and courage were present throughout her battle with cancer from her diagnosis in June 2018 until she passed away peacefully at home on October 15th, 2019.
Born in Bellshill, Scotland, Mary’s nurturing nature and her desire to care for others led her to pursue training as a nurse at the Victoria Infirmary in Glasgow, Scotland where she became a Registered General and Orthopedic Nurse.
In 1974, she emigrated to Canada with her husband Jim. She was proud of her Canadian Citizenship and settled in Ottawa where she raised her daughters Karen and Kirsten.
She is lovingly remembered and missed by her family and friends. The Mary Miller Memorial Fund honours Mary’s memory and her care for others by supporting clinical trials and new treatments in gynecological cancer, particularly vulvar cancer.
