Karin “Monica” (Nordenstam) Miller 65 years old. Born October 25, 1953 in Lovell Wyoming to Bror (Bill) and Joann Nordenstam.  Monica grew up in Cowley Wyoming where she would spend her entire life.  As a child she enjoyed growing up close to family with fond memories of experiences shared with brothers, aunts, uncles, and cousins. The extended family was tight knit as they were very proud of their Swedish heritage and many were the first generation born in the United States.  Monica attended School in her small home town where she proudly graduated as a Cowley Jaguar.  She was married to Dean Miller in 1973 and raised a loving family of three biological children, and one foster son.  Monica felt blessed to have seven grandchildren and was a tremendous part of their lives sewing holiday costumes, or pajamas and spending many days traveling to the next music and dance recital or sporting event.      

Monica worked many jobs including years of employment with The Office Shop in Cowley and working for the School District as the Secretary at the Cowley Elementary and Librarian at the Byron High School. Monica had many lifelong friends and will be remembered as a willing servant to her community.  She spent decades volunteering through various committees spearheading many community improvement programs, social functions and youth activities.  Monica will be remembered for her love for the Cowley community, tremendous ambition and innumerous talents.  

Monica passed with family by her side on October 26th, 2018. A celebration of her life will be held at the Cowley Log Gym Friday November 2rd at 2pm.

She is preceded in death by her Father and Mother, Bill & Joann Nordenstam.  

She is survived by her brothers Tom and Brent Nordenstam, and her children Matthew (Heather) Miller, Kristina (Brian) Stinson, and Kimberly (Cleve) Wilson, and foster son Roger Redding.

My family and I would like to express our deepest sympathy over the loss of Monica.
May you find comfort in your loving memories and the warmth of family and friends. A scripture that has uplifted many who have experienced such a loss, is found at Revelation 21:4. There it describes a time when death and pain will be gone forever. We will even see our loved ones again who we have lost in death (John 5:28 & 29). It is our hope that these words bring you a measure of comfort during this difficult time as well. Once again, please accept our condolences as you deal with your loss.

To the Family ,
I would like to express how sorry to hear of your loss.
It seems so unfair that death should have the power to take away someone you love. And when it happens, the thought of never again being able to talk to, laugh with, or hold your loved one can be most difficult to bear. That pain is not necessarily erased by being told that your loved one is up in heaven.
Jesus Christ promised that millions now dead will live again on this earth and have the prospect of remaining on it forever under peaceful, paradisaic conditions. (Luke 23:43; John 3:16; 17:3; compare Psalm 37:29 and Matthew 5:5.) Since Jesus made the promise, it is safe to assume that he is willing to fulfill it.
These promises have consoled me when my father died. Hopefully, they can provide some hope and comfort to your family.
