Eileen J. Miller, age 91, of Garnett, Kansas, passed away on Sunday, October 29, 2017, at Parkview Heights in Garnett.
She was born November 17, 1925, in Richmond, Kansas, the daughter of Christopher and Elizabeth (Pickert) Hermreck. She grew up in the Richmond area and attended West Scipio School.
Eileen married Clyde V. Miller on February 3, 1945, in Bastrop, Texas. This union was blessed with two children, Ron and Kathe.
Eileen's life was a dedication of hard work and being there for others. She worked at the sewing factory in Garnett for many years. She was also a member of Holy Angels Church and Altar Society. Most importantly she was a homemaker and farmer's wife, which meant many hours of hard work inside as well as outside. Her greatest joy was her family. Spending time with her kids and grandkids were her favorite times. She always made complete meals with homemade rolls and pies look easy. She was there for anyone, family and friends, to lend a helping hand and to be a comfort. She never thought about herself.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Christopher and Elizabeth Hermreck; her husband, Clyde Miller on September 27, 2008; her son, Ron Miller on April 2, 2011; four brothers, Mike, Don, Conrad, and Earl; two sisters, LaVerne and Willie.
Eileen Miller is survived by her daughter, Kathe Solo and husband Mike of Osawatomie, Kansas; seven grandchildren, Roger Miller, Kortney Reeder, Ryan Miller, Kris Miller, Robert White, Jessica Sossamon and Michaela Solo; eight great grandchildren, Colton Miller, Kylie Miller, Rylan Reeder, Kinlea Reeder, Karson Reeder, Ally Miller, Ty Miller, and Rylea Miller; daughter-in-law, Linda Miller of Garnett, Kansas.
