Verna Jean Milley


We celebrate the life of Mrs. Verna Milley, who passed away peacefully on August 5, 2014 at the age of 76 years. Verna was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, sister and friend. Her bright smile and smiling blue eyes magnetically drew people in to her world and her caring and loving nature kept them there.
Verna was born in Dildo, Newfoundland on February 4th, 1938 to Albert and Minnie George and was the second youngest in a family of 11 children. She then lived in Grand Falls, Newfoundland for many years before moving to Alberta with her husband and children in 1979. It was the oil boom of that time that brought them out west and Alberta gradually became their home.
Verna is survived by her husband Mr. Bert Milley, with whom she was married for 53 years; by her son Roger Milley (and daughter-in-law Karen Rawson); by her daughter Elizabeth Oplanich (and son-in-law John Oplanich); by her six dearly loved grandchildren (all who called her Nannie or Nan), Michael Oplanich, Natalie Oplanich, Ariana Oplanich, Kyle Milley, Jake Milley and Monique Milley.
A memorial service for Verna will be held on Saturday August 16, 2014 at 2:00 pm at Serenity Funeral Service 10129 Princess Elizabeth Ave., Edmonton, AB.
Verna’s immediate family would like to especially thank the staff of Vanguard Shepherd’s Care, the staff of hospice unit 9Y at the Edmonton General Hospital and Dr. Janet Chiu for their wonderful care.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Alzheimer Society Canada in Verna Milley’s name. See or call 1-800-616-8816
