Nancy Sharon Miller

Glenwood Springs, CO Colorado

She’s gone, The “Queen Bee” passed on April 15, 2010 after a short hard fight against cancer. She was fortunate to have so many people that knew and loved her.

She was extremely grateful to have lived in the valley for over 25 years.

Momma had many friends this is what gave her life. Especially the kids, you could hear her when they came around threatening to “Suck Their Youth”. She so loved the youth and their energy. Anyone who knew her always had a place to sleep, food to eat, and the ability to bring joy and laughter back into their lives to help them through their day. When it came to new faces there was not a moment that anyone would feel left out or felt like an outsider in her home.

Mom’s greatest asset was her ability to make you feel the abundance of love she felt for everyone. Regardless of who you were or where you came from you were always welcomed at her home. For those who knew her she gave her best to insure you felt her unconditional love for all.

During her final times there was an overwhelming amount of love returned to her from her many friends that came to her aid, returning the Love she readily gave to others.

So many people came to help and make her final days more comfortable. Momma was so touched and impressed by all her friends. How great is it to receive so much love from so many. Words could never express the gratitude she had for all the time and love she received from all. She really wanted to thank everyone for their support and unconditional love. The love she showed came back to her ten fold when she needed the ones she loved to help her in the hardest of times for her friends and family. THANK YOU! In such a difficult time, her life was made so much more tolerable because of all of You. We couldn’t have gotten through this without you.

Heather, Shirleen, Sean, Annie, Lindsey, June and of course her son in law “Biggie”.

She always held a special place in her heart for her son in-law. She cherished all of you. All the help and support that was given did not go unnoticed by Nancy or her daughter. You made her extremely happy and comfortable. She could not have finished her journey in a more loving, caring, and compassionate way without your help.

A memorial celebrating Nancy’s life will be held at the Silt Community Center Thursday April 29th at 11:00 there will be a celebration at her Daughter’s house following the service.

One of Mom’s pleasures was planting and harvest time at the house in Silt. One of her last wishes was to plant a fruit tree on her daughter’s land. She felt that every year when the tree bloomed and the fruit came she would be remembered by those that benefited from such beauty from the spring flowers and the fruit it would bare in the fall. She said that this could be her way of being remembered and reminded of her giving ways. For those that would like to donate, please donate to Hospice of the Valley in her name.

Her laugh, smile and encouragement will be missed by so many. There will be a void in our lives that may never be filled. We can only be grateful that she was here for the time she was. All of our lives were greatly enhanced by her presence.

See ya later Momma I’ll miss you .
