Farewell Miss Joy Miller aka The Nice Lady

Thursday 5 June 2008

Joy MillerWe heard with deep sadness a few weeks ago that our most generous donor ever, Ms Joy Miller (pictured), had died. We never met Ms Miller. But for seven years she supported us with a donation of $12 000 each year. That gift far exceeded our annual revenue from subscriptions and gave us a sense of financial stability which was itself a great blessing to us.

We have now found out something about a wonderful person whom we used to call The Nice Lady. It’s kindly provided by the Rev. Darryl Bishop, chaplain to Baptist Homes for the Aged.

Thank you, Joy Miller, benefactor to our Society and to many other causes.

Joy Miller

Miss Joy Clarrice Miller was born in Quorn, South Australia on 3rd June 1923. Joy had two brothers. She attended school in Quorn.

At the age of 16, Joy moved to Adelaide where she attended night school to learn shorthand and typing. Joy worked in her family business, Fricker Limited (Builders) as a Bookkeeper up until her retirement. Joy never married.

Her past interests and hobbies included tennis and swimming. Joy had a deep faith out of which her spirit of generosity flowed. She attended the Gateway Baptist Church at Queenstown where she taught Sunday School as well as being involved in a range of different ministries and programs. In later life Joy enjoyed listening to soft, easy listening music, watching TV and socializing with family, friends and other residents. She was also an avid Port Power supporter.

Owing to failing health, Joy moved into Illoura Village at Norwood and then in September 2005, Joy transferred to Playford Village, a Nursing Home at Davoren Park.

Joy passed away on 19th April 2008 at the age of 84 years. Her funeral service was held at Gateway Baptist Church on 23rd April 2008.
