Estella Marie McMillan



CELEBRATION OF LOVE A person’s greatest legacy is the loving memories left in the hearts of family and friends; Estella leaves infinite loving memories. Her journey began 89 years ago when Annie and Holly Dow welcomed her into the world. Stel’s life was shared with eight siblings. Touched by her loving spirit, for 66 years, was husband Robert (deceased). Treasuring memories are her “B” children: Bradley (Joan), Barbara ((Joel) and Brent (Marilyn); oldest son Brian (deceased) was always held close. Intensely, Stel stood by her family and was truly content surrounded by them. No holiday or occasion occurred without her valiant attempt to get everyone together. Smiling, family remembers her joy of entertaining and preparing a bounty of food; leftovers lasted a week. Her grandchildren grin thinking about gramma’s endless supply of shortbread and “dog poop” cookies. Stel was quick to help and always in motion. She was a doer - vibrant, competent and independent. Without a doubt, she was born with a natural gift to nurse and was extremely proud of her 32 rewarding years in Edmonton’s hospitals. Enriching her life, was Sandra and many nursing friendships. Stel’s caring, generous nature is the precious gift she passes down to her great grandchildren. It is a privilege to call this strong, beautiful woman our mother, grandmother/great, sister and friend ... we are blessed. The Clan are eternally grateful for the compassionate care given to Estella and Bob (and family) by all staff at Hardisty Care Center.

In Loving Memory of
Estella Marie McMillan
(Maiden: Dow)
