(nee Miller) passed away peacefully on Wednesday, August 9, 2023, after a long struggle with lung cancer. Nancy, who was 73 years old, was born in Little Rock, Arkansas, to Carl F. Miller and Celesia F. Miller. Nancy loved her parents deeply. She often talked about her happy childhood and her experiences growing up in Little Rock with her parents, her brother, Felix, and her many cousins and friends living in Arkansas, Nebraska, and Minnesota.
Throughout her life, Nancy lived in Little Rock; Shreveport, Louisiana, Lincoln, Nebraska; Charlottesville, Virginia; and Kirkwood, Missouri. She graduated from Centenary College in Shreveport with a degree in foreign languages. Nancy was an avid gardener, talented artist, a superb cook, and devoted mother to her cats. She loved murder mysteries, snow, ice skating, France, and Christmas. Nancy never met a stranger and worked hard to create a sense of magic and wonder for everyone in her life. She took pride in being the Fairy Godmother to her nephew and niece.
She was the beloved sister and sister-in-law of Felix and Marti Miller of Clayton; and the aunt of Zachary C. Miller (Natasha Wilson) and Claire (nee Miller) Schindler (Russell), her grand-niece and grand-nephew. She was a dear friend of many. She was preceded in death by her parents.
