So saddened to hear of Sue’s passing. Mac & I travel back home to St.John’s infrequently but whenever we’re home & we’ve run into Sue it’s always been such a pleasant conversation! Such a bright ray of sunshine that we’ll miss on our visits home!

I was so saddened to hear of Sue’s passing. Thinking of you all in this time of grief. Think of the good times, over the years there were so many! Love to all

I am incredibly saddened over Sue’s passing. Sue and I have been good friends for more than 40 years. So, so many good times shared with our circle of friends; so many memories to cherish. Sue was the kindest person I know. She would brighten everyone’s day just by being there. Though living away now, I was visiting St. John’s just a few months ago and Sue and I got together for coffee and to catch up. It’s the first time I’d seen her in a year but, as always, it was like no time had passed. I am going to miss her terribly.
To the boys, to Dean and all of the Miller family, please accept my deepest condolences for your loss. You will be in my thoughts.

Andy and Sherri Miller and Family. Sorry to hear about your loss. We are thinking of you all at this time. With sympathy, Tom, Jennifer and Lynn Kean

To Dave, Sue’s sons and family, I was so sad to hear of Sue’s passing. Sue and I played basketball together for the ‘Banshees’ back in the 80’s. She was sweet then, and still as sweet when we reconnected in Florida years later. Brian and I were so lucky to have taken a couple of mini vacations with Sue and Dave and a few friends, where we shared many laughs and made wonderful memories. Sue lived life to the fullest and made everyone around her feel good. She just had that personality. Rest In Peace, Sue. You will be missed.

Deb, I’m so very sorry for your loss. Thinking of you and your family at this time. With sympathy, Susan

Very saddened to hear about the loss of Sue. I was a classmate of Sue’s at MUN School of Business. Sue always had such a wonderful smile that she shared with everyone! I’m so glad I had the opportunity to visit with Sue at the last Class of ‘81 reunion. Sending thoughts of comfort and condolences to the family. With heartfelt sympathy.

Dear Sue’s boys and Dave, I’m so sorry for your loss. I first met Sue when we played basketball many years ago for Stanley’s Steamer. Many laughs, road trips, and friendships. Although I haven’t seen Sue in a number of years her sweet nature seems to have stayed with her according to these comments. Bless you. “Disco duckies all the way”

To Sue’s boys and Dave
I had the great pleasure of knowing Sue first as a classmate at PWC and later as a neighbour. She was all the things that people say – funny, warm, smart and a wonderful mother to her four amazing sons. I know you will have many happy stories that will help you all through these difficult times. Please accept our deepest sympathies on your loss.

My deepest condolences to Sue’s family and friends. She radiated kindness and beauty. A truly wonderful person.

To Coady,Scott,Brett ,and Drew. So sorry to hear about your moms passing. I got to know your mom through you while at jack and Jill. She was a beautiful person and you were all great boys. Take comfort in each other and keep your moms memory alive by talking, laughing and crying. Talk about the good times and the not so good. Remember loved ones die but love lives on.
Your in my thoughts and prayers.. Elsie Parsons (your preschool teacher)

To the Millers and the MacDonalds,
I am so saddened to learn of your loss. Sue, Dean and I were at MUN Business School together. Sue was a kind, friendly, warm person, who always had a smile on her face – and what a beautiful smile it was. I last saw her about 10 years ago at a class reunion and she was exactly the same as she was 35 years ago – warm, welcoming, and with a joie de vivre.. She spoke with such pride and love of her four sons. May time heal your sorrow, friends ease your pain, and memories give you comfort at this difficult time. With heartfelt sympathies. Siobhan

It is with a heavy heart that I offer my condolences to Sue’s family. I met Sue at MUN School of Business and she was one of the best. Such a sweet lady. From reading all these messages, it truly does the heart good to see how many lives that Sue touched and left such an impression on this world. Gone long before we were ready to say Good Bye but never will be forgotten. Rest easy, sweet Sue. See you on the other side!….

To The Miller Family, we are so sorry for your loss. With our deepest sympathy. Pam and Don Forbes

Our heartfelt condolences to the Miller family, Sue’s sons and families and Dave on Sue’s passing. Sue will always be remembered for the kind, gentle and fun-loving person she was, and will be deeply missed by many. Please know that you are all in our thoughts and prayers. May the happy memories of Sue help you through this sad and difficult time. Sincerely, Bert, Bessie, Bonnie and Barbi Noseworthy

The first time I met Sue it was as Jimmys sister back in the old rugby days and for years that’s how I thought of her. Things changed one summer in P.E.I. when we had the privilege to spend two weeks with Deao and Sue , Jim and Lucy, Len and Mitch , Tim and Juliette, and all of our very young children. I saw Sue as a Mom , wife , friend and not Jimmys sis.. She all ways had a smile on her face a positive attitude and a kind spirit inside. In this most difficult time, one that is hard comprehend, try to remember Sue as the lovely person she is and the way she carried herself. Strength to Cody, Scott , Brett,and Drew. My deepest condolence to Andy, Jimmy and Sherri and Peace to Sue.

I am so sorry to hear of Sue’s passing. I haven’t seen her since our days as Vanier volunteers but she was a special person. Sue always had a smile on her face, helped out with everything and you knew how much she loved her boys. My sincere condolences to her family and friends.

Our heartfelt condolences to Deb, Scott, Jess, Matt, and all of Sue’s family and friends. Thinking of all of you.

Our deepest sympathy to Dave and Sue’s family on her passing. She was my dear friend for many years, originally a co-worker and later one of “the girls”. Over the years, we shared many lunches, getaway weekends and other adventures, and became an amazing support group to each other. She was creative, funny, warm and kind, an inspiration to all of us in many ways. She will be missed!

Dear Family,

After reading the sad news I wish to send my very deepest condolences to all.

I went to Prince of Wales Collegiate with Susan and remember her well from that time. She was a lovely and outgoing person. I have fond memories of knowing her.
May your faith embrace your broken hearts with much needed comfort.

Sending tons of love, warm hugs and prayers. Please take care.

It is difficult to comprehend that Sue’s life here on earth has come to an end. She was the sweetest and gentlest person I have known. I will forever cherish all the laughter and good times we had together. She is just one of those people that everyone wanted to be friends with and I feel privileged that I was one.
My heartfelt sympathies to her immediate and extended family. May you find joy and comfort in each and every memory.
Kim and Bill Fanning

Although we can’t be with you this weekend, our thoughts and prayers are with you, all of Sue’s family and friends.
Sue always had a smile and was always interested in others, such a big heart. Penny (book club buddy) will miss her love of life and her heartwarming chuckle.
With love and sympathy.

My deepest sympathies to Sue’s boys, to her family, and her many, many friends.

Sue personified all that was good in this world and she did so with grace and dignity and no thought of self. Our sympathy goes to her boys and all those who loved her and will miss her. Justin Conway and Flo Evans

The Romanella family would like to extend its deepest sympathies to your family on the passing of Susan. You will all be in our thoughts and prayers. Rocky and Debbie Romanella

I am so very sorry to hear of your mom’s passing. I knew your mom through my selling of Mary Kay. Your mom was always so pleasant. Each and every time I would drop off an order to her she would always end the conversation with ” Toodle-Loo”. Please accept my sincere condolences.

My deepest sympathies to all of Sue’s family and friends on her passing. She was such a wonderful gentle soul, with a smile that brightened every room. Sue was such an important part of the Class of ’81…she was loved by all and will be remembered as one of the nicest people you would/could ever know. We will never forget you…or your beautiful smile. Rest easy.

To Melvie and family I am so immensely sorry for your loss. Not sure if you’ll remember me but a long time ago you were so good to me and my deceased husband. I have thought of you often you were such s special person and it seems your kind and caring traits carried on to your children My heart breaks for you in the loss of your daughter. You are in my thoughts and prayers

To all of Sue’s family
My deepest condolences to all of you. I know your hearts must be broken.
It is so hard to believe that the bright light that Sue was is gone. I haven’t seen her since our Class of ’81 25th reunion but I can see from the picture that she never changed. Always smiling, positive, warm and kind and never a harsh word about anyone. We are planning a girls of ’81 get together in Toronto in Sue’s honor. Thank you Sue for getting old friends together!

Deb, Scott and Family
We are deeply saddened by the loss of your sister Sue. Although we never met her , we have heard wonderfull comments about her.
The next few days will be difficult, but the memories will last forever.
Claudia & Ches Drodge

Our condolence to the family. The first time I meet Sue was at high board diving with her sons. So sorry for your loss. Sue certainly could lighten up a room. It was a great a pleasure to have known her.

Just went to see the sunrise. Haven’t done that in a long time. Way too long. Thank you Sue!

A kind, smart, fun loving university friend gone too soon. Way too soon.

Please raise a glass on Monday night and know that I, and I’m sure, many of our university friends who aren’t able to be there to celebrate Sue’s life are thinking of her and her family and friends.

We were so sorry to hear of Sue’s passing. She so obviously had a deep impact on everyone around her.
Our sincere condolences to Dave, Cody, Scott, Brett Drew , Mr. & Mrs. Miller & all of her close family & friends.

Our condolence to the family and friends!
We will think of her whenever in Berlin will be a MARATHON.The whole family had a great time then!

Deb, so sorry to hear about the loss of your sister. Our prayers and thoughts are with you and your family at this time. God bless

Looking at the lovely photo of Sue brings us fond memories of a trip to Spain with Sue and the girls in 2008, as well as more recent visits in Newfoundland. We can still hear Sue laughing.

Thinking of Sue’s family and cherished friends in this time of loss and grief.

You are in our thoughts and our hearts are heavy for you. As the beautiful family you are, we know your support and love for each other will see you through. God bless and support you. Love, Max and Phyllis

When I heard that Sue Miller passed away, the first words I said were “she was so full of life”. I have many fond memories of Sue, all so vivid despite the fact that they were many years ago. She was such a fun gal to be around and our families have had such good times together over the years. I can still hear her laugh and feel her kind spirit. Sending all of my love from the west coast. . . xo Becca Angel

My heart breaks for your loss. I am so very sorry to hear of Sues passing. I’m glad we got to speak during Christmas Drew❤️ Andrea Prowse

Sheilagh and I were deeply saddened to hear of Sue’s passing. We have many fond memories of the wonderful times we enjoyed together. Whether camping in the middle of nowhere, travelling far and wide or simply playing cards (until Tex arrived) we all had a great deal of fun. Sue was a wonderful and genuinely great person and mother who will be sorely missed. Treasure all your wonderful memories.
To the boys, Deano and the whole family please accept our heartfelt condolences. Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time

We will never forget the time we shared with Sue on the Miller-family-Euro-extravaganza in 2015. Sue’s warm, welcoming presence throughout that trip and her once-in-a-lifetime triumphant finish at the Berlin marathon gave us a precious glimpse into the amazing, fun-loving, and beautiful woman she’ll be remembered as. To her treasured friends and family, our hearts are with you, and we know that Sue’s vibrant and generous spirit will wrap around all of you with love as you honour her life and continue her legacy. We feel lucky to have known her.

If I thought Sue could hear me I would say : Because we were neighbours , because of our kids sharing time playing hide and seek ( most often in your backyard) , growing up at the same schools…(Me running my first Tely with you Sue )…your impact on us is far more than you knew …the connection runs deep even in spite of a limited time spent together . Our hearts are drenched with a sadness. Sue had so much more to live and give. She was a beautiful person on the outside and in. The world is just more empty without her but I am sure she has influenced her boys and her family in a way that they will carry her legacy on … her fun loving self , never sweat the small stuff mantra… we know this is a very deep hurt for all of the family and friends so important in her life.
We wish you all comfort in knowing that you are surrounded with so many who support you in this dreadfully sad time.
With our love and condolences
Beverly Peter Stuart Nadine and Erin

So saddened to hear about the loss to the Miller Family , her four beautiful boys and her large circle of friends. Deb and Scott, stay strong, celebrate Sue’s life, cherish her memories and make more memories of your own in the days and months to come by remembering, talking about and having her part of your daily routines. She will be all around you, find some comfort in that.

Andy, Sherri and Dave,
So sorry to hear of Sue’s passing. We will keep all the family in our thoughts and prayers.
Sincerely
Donna and Derrick Hutchens

Sincere condolences to Sue’s family for your loss. She was a great friend during my time in Newfoundland and even visited with us during her trip to Australia a few years ago. She will be sadly missed.

It is with such sad hearts that we must now say goodbye to you, Susan. Life is so precious. Sending deepest condolences and sympathies to her family and friends. A beautiful soul …

How much better the world would be if everyone was like Sue. She was truly the kindest person I ever met and so thoughtful. I know her loss for family and friends is crushing but, as the grief passes, you will find that love again settled in your hearts. It will take time but you will find it. I hope all friends will do something Sue. I will.

Our sincerest heartfelt condolences to the MacDonald and Miller families. A loss such as this is hard to comprehend and the grief immense however it is true that time will help us to learn ways to cope with our loss and to find joy in the memories we have and the new ones we will make. Sue, may your gentle soul and goodwill shine in those you have left behind.

Cheryl Martin & Steve O’Dea

To the whole Miller family

May ALL the happy memories you shared over the years last with you forever. xo

Thinking of you all … What an inspirational family (and friends) Sue had.

“Kia kaha “
Janet and Paul Baccardax

I always said that Sue was the most giving person ever. She always thought of others and their needs instead of her own. That was what Sue was all about. And everyone loved her for it. She brought joy to whomeever she was around. Sue was one in a million. To me she was the best friend ever, for over 35 years, and I will miss her beyond words.

Sue was a very good friend with whom I shared many girls trips, weekends and always many laughs, wine , food, shopping and just generally always a fun time. Sue loved her boys so very much and no matter where we were she always talked about you all. If I had to sum up my thoughts and feelings for Sue it would be that she was the epitome of life, love, adventure, optimism, sweetness, kindness and family and friends. Sue you will be missed by so many people and will certainly live on in the hearts and minds of all of the people she touched with her kindness and friendship.
Dianne and Tom Wheeler

A beautiful woman taken too soon. Sue enjoyed life, so many will cherish memories of a wonderful mom, daughter, sister and friend. My heart goes out to family and friends in this difficult time of loss.

Barb Furey (Williams)

To the Miller Family our deepest sympathies to you Mrs. Miller and Family. She was a wonderful person who spent a fair bit of time with my younger sister Kim (Fanning) at our house. A great mom, daughter, sister and a very strong woman . Our hearts go out to you All in your loss.
Janet, Gary and Family

Our Sue was an integral part of our girls group and will be greatly missed. She was creative, kind, giving, funny and loving to all who knew her. Dave, her boys and her mom and dad, I will be thinking of you often as you move on in life without this very important cog in your family wheel.

To all the family and friends. Sue was a bright light always. We had fun from Snows Pond , through high school to seeing her at the Duke some Friday’s . Always smiling and kind to others.
