With heavy hearts we are saddened to announce the passing of Lorraine Miller of Portage la Prairie, on April 22, 2022. 

She leaves to mourn her beloved son Kristopher, daughter-in-law Juanita, grandchildren Angelita, Alexander, Naomi, and Myles, her great-grandchildren Alayna, Zane, Logan, Mila, Ezekiel, and Ellie, along with many nieces, nephews, extended friends and family acquired throughout the years.

Lorraine was predeceased by her husband Joseph Miller, long-time friend Norman Tilley, her parents Edward and Mary Strecker, and siblings Valerie, Florence, and Edward.

Lorraine was born in Winnipeg, MB and grew up in Beausejour, MacDonald, and Portage la Prairie, MB. Throughout her life she worked on her parent’s farm, in the pharmacy business, and real estate. She was passionate about gardening, cooking, baking and loved to share her recipes and tricks.  Lorraine had a big heart and was always willing to help people any way she could, and she was always there to listen if you had a problem.  She loved being outside, travelling, and spending time with her friends and family, especially her grandchildren for whom she did anything for.  She was a huge part in her family’s life, and she will be greatly missed.

We would like to thank all the nurses and health care aides on the Medical Unit and Extended Care Unit, Dr. Nelson, and all staff at the Portage District General Hospital.

A Come & Go Visitation for family and friends will be held on Saturday April 30, 2022, from 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm at Omega Funeral Home, 83 Royal Rd. S., Portage la Prairie.
