Vera Doreen (Miller) (Thompson) Bulbeck peacefully passed away at the Shaunavon Care Center on Monday, July 27, 2020 at the age of 95. She is lovingly remembered and cherished by her only remaining sibling, her sister, Margaret Anderson, her sisters-in-law, Stella Burton and Agnes Miller, as well as many nieces, nephews, and friends. She was predeceased by her parents, four brothers (Roy, Dale, Lloyd, Bob), six sisters (Bernice Dancy, Hazel Farrow, Eileen Miller, Elsie Gordon, Dorothy Noble, Pearl Parsneau), husband (Tom), ex husband (Bill), and several nieces and nephews. Vera was born at the Vanguard Hospital on January 7, 1925 to Jesse and Matilda Miller. She was the 10th child of 12 and was raised on the family farm south of Pambrun. She attended Whiska Creek School. In 1943 she went to Regina where she was employed until her marriage to Tom Thompson in August, 1944. They lived in Vanguard for six years and then moved to Swift Current. Vera was employed at JM Sinclair Grocery Wholesale for ten years. When it closed down, Tom and Vera operated Riverdene Grocery for a couple of years. After 35 years of marriage, Tom passed away in 1980. Then Vera continued working at the Southwest Pro-Ag International Harvester Dealership until her retirement in 1986. She married Bill Bulbeck in 1987. Vera enjoyed outdoor sports, curling, darts, and bowling. In addition to her love of playing the organ and piano, Vera also liked many crafts such as sewing, knitting, painting, and crocheting. Like all of the Miller sisters, Vera loved to cook, bake, and entertain. She was known for her hospitality as many family get-to-gethers took place in her basement. She thoroughly enjoyed Miller Reunions where she could reconnect with relatives near and far. Vera was a very special aunt and a dear friend. She will be remembered for her fun-loving spirit, sense of humour, positive attitude, and an amazing sense of adventure. Vera leaves behind a legacy of kindness and unconditional love. The family is extremely grateful for the compassionate care Vera received in her final years at the Shaunavon Care Center.
