In the 1970's, she joined Gospel Baptist Church, where she was a faithful and loved member.
She was preceded in death by her five siblings, her husband, Harlie Miller, Sr. (1981) and a son, Donald Miller (1987).
She is survived by several members of her immediate family, who all live in the Greensboro area, including her daughter, Susan Koutsky, son-in-law, Dale Koutsky; son Harlie Miller, Jr., and daughter-in-law, Kellie Miller; three grand-children, Allen Long and his wife Lynn Long, Houston Miller, and Makayla Miller; one great grand-son, Jamie Long; and several nieces and nephews.

As a reflection of her love for family, memorial donations in place of flowers are sincerely requested, and should be made to the Gospel Baptist Church Christmas offering, 5945 N. Church Street, Greensboro to help families during the holiday season.
