June 20, 1918-Nov. 7, 2013


June L. Miller, 95, of Delphos, died at 8:52 p.m. Thursday at her residence.

She was born June 20, 1918, in Lima to John B. and Grace E. (Ramer) Striff, who preceded her in death.

She was united in marriage to Kenneth S. Miller, who preceded her in death in 2001. On Aug. 29, 2000, June and Kenneth renewed their wedding vows after being married for 65 years.

Survivors include her son, Rick (Lynn) Miller of Delphos; her daughter, Marilyn (Kenneth) Lyle of Delphos; five grandchildren, Deanne (Scott) Clevenger, Angela (Adam) Eickholt, Cory Noftz all of Delphos, Julie (Patrick) Vicars of Houston and Amy Noftz of New York; five great-grandchildren, 1st Lt. Todd Clevenger, currently serving in Kuwait, Melissa Clevenger of Columbus, Savanna Lyle of Tallahassee and Avery and Addison Eickholt both of Delphos; and her special friend, Julie Fuerst.

She was preceded in death by an infant son, Kenneth Miller; three sisters, LaDonna Wilkerson, Juanita Hawk and Janice Doty; and a grandson, Steven Lyle.

Mrs. Miller was a homemaker and a member of Trinity United Methodist Church in Delphos. She was also an Eastern Star member for more than 50 years.

June was full of life. She was a Girl Scout Leader and Cub Scout Den Mother. She loved her flowers to the fullest! She was very versatile in her crafting ability, working with ceramics, crocheting and decorating cakes. She loved collecting dolls and working crossword puzzles. As a young woman, she enjoyed dancing and was very proud of her housekeeping ability, but what she was most proud of was her family, especially the joy she gained from listening to her son broadcast countless sporting events on the radio. She never missed a game.

Funeral services will be at 11 a.m. Monday, the Rev. David Howell, officiating at Trinity United Methodist Church in Delphos. Burial will follow in Walnut Grove Cemetery.

Visitation will take place from 2-8 p.m. Sunday at Harter and Schier Funeral Home, where there will be an Eastern Star service beginning at 7 p.m., and one hour prior to the service at Trinity United Methodist Church.

Memorial contributions may be made to Trinity United Methodist Building Fund, American Cancer Society or Delphos Area Visiting Nurses.
