JERSEYVILLE – Betty Karleen Miller, 69, passed away at 1:15 p.m., Sunday, July 12, 2020 at her residence.
She was born on May 23, 1951 at the family home in Nutwood, Richwoods Township, Illinois and was one of nine children born to the late Earsie L. and Hazel M. (Seeman) Miller.
Betty lived a life of simplicity and enjoyed spending time outdoors, making it a natural fit for her to take on lawn mowing and maintenance of the Rosedale Cemetery and Meadowbranch Cemetery for many years. She also enjoyed shooting guns and playing the guitar with her good friends, Eddie Miles and Sandy Camden.
Surviving are her siblings and their spouses, Dennis Miller of Kane; Earsie “Danny” and Ava Miller of Jerseyville; Debra and James Wyhs of Fieldon; Jeff and Mary Miller of Fieldon; Herb Miller of Columbia, Missouri; Melissa and Tony Hill of Brilliant, Alabama; along with numerous nieces and nephews.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by two brothers and a sister in-law, Forrest William Miller and Douglas and Darlene Miller; as well as a niece, Shara Miller.
Visitation will be from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m., Thursday, July 16, 2020 at the Crawford Funeral Home. A procession will depart the funeral home at 1 p.m. to take Betty to her final resting place at the Fieldon Cemetery.
