The choir in heaven just added a new angelic voice to its chorus. On March 13, 2021 Nadine Royle Miller went home to be with her sweetheart and family on the other side who have been patiently awaiting her arrival.
Nadine was born July 10, 1935 in Pleasant Grove, Utah to Homer Freeman Royle and Emily Peay Royle. She was the oldest of four sisters who were her best friends and one of her biggest blessings in life. She was raised in American Fork and attended American Fork High where she met the love of her life, Larry Miller. They were inseparable from the moment they met and were the perfect pair, like popcorn and Lawry’s salt. They built a big and beautiful life together as they raised their four children Renae, Maureen, Don and Michelle who were the center of their universe.
If you didn’t know Nadine, chances are you knew someone who did, and she could make that connection in five seconds flat. She was hard to forget and easy to love. She was proud to be a member of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir for 20+ years where she traveled the world and made lifelong friends. Her gift of making everyone she ever met feel special made her everyone’s favorite dental assistant for over 40 years. She was a faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and served a mission with her eternal companion in the Philippines from 2000-2001 where she instantly fell in love with the people and the culture. As a couple they also served as ordinance workers in the Salt Lake and Jordan River temples where they cherished the joy and peace they found in service.
Together, Nadine and Larry had 20 grandkids, 62 great grandkids, and 6 great great grandkids who they adored and spoiled every chance they got. It was impossible to leave their house without a bite of frogeye salad, at least one Creamsicle, and a pocket full of caramels. Their home was always full of music, laughter, and unconditional love. It was also the best place on earth to watch BYU and Jazz games which were constantly on.
Nadine was truly one of a kind. Nails, hair, jewelry, and perfume ALWAYS on point, dressed to the nines with a Diet Dr Pepper in hand, she whistled and made friends everywhere she went. She was a little lady with a huge heart. She never missed a chance to tell you how much she loved you and make you feel like the most important person in the world. She was beautiful. She was graceful. She left everyone better than she found them. She was kind. She was Christlike. She will be missed beyond measure.
Nadine was welcomed with open arms into paradise by her husband Larry Miller, son Don Miller, grandson Jaren Martindale, sister Janette Monson and parents Homer and Emily Royle.
She is survived by her daughters and their spouses: ReNae (Gary) Orton, Maureen (Douglas) Martindale, and Michelle (Rick) Campagna.
