Joan passed away in the Linacre Hospital Hampton Victoria. Joan was cremated at Springvale Crematorium
Since Joan’s parents passed away many years ago Joan has lived with her sister Hazel and her late husband Vern in Hampton Vic.
Joan has had a few falls over the last few years, broken hip, and recently found she had a fractured leg and was ulcerated and put in the Linacre Hospital Hampton where she remained and passed away there.
Joan belonged to the Banjo Club Melbourne for many years. My dear friend and work colleague Joan I met the first day I started at OTC (A) in Queen Street Melbourne in February 1957 and it was a pleasure to have worked with Joan very closely for 28 years or more. On 22nd August I decided to ring Joan to see how she was going, shocked to find that Joan passed away 7 weeks ago and no notice in papers.
Joan was featured in the August 1988 TRANSIT Longest-serving member: Joan Miller Retires with the distinction of being the longest- serving staff member to retire from OTC, following 47 years in the business – beginning with AWA in 1941. George Maltby presented Joan with a Gold watch.
RIP Joan. (by Robert Hall)
