Jane Lee Miller passed away peacefully at home in Monument, Colorado. She was 92 years old, born January 14, 1931, in Des Moines, Iowa to Ivan and Mable Miller. She had four siblings who preceded her in death:  Dr. Lyle Miller, Lois (Miller) Jones, Vera (Miller) Conkey and Nancy (Miller) Quillen.

She married Eldon H. Miller on September 12, 1948, and they had four children.  Eldon and Jane shared a beautiful love for one another for 63 years. She is preceded in death by her husband, Eldon; and their oldest son, Steven H. Miller. She is survived by her daughter, Sheryl Ellis (Dave) of Monument, Colorado; sons: Craig A. Miller (Bonita) of Kansas City, Missouri, and Randy L. Miller (Terri) of Burlington, Kentucky; daughter-in-law, Vickie Miller (wife of Steven Miller).

Jane deeply loved her family and was equally loved by all who knew her. She was so proud of her 10 grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren.

Jane loved to travel, and she and Eldon’s favorite vacation spots were San Diego and Hawaii.

Jane uplifted others by sharing her story of triumph. She was tragically burned when she was five years old and spent a significant amount of time in the hospital, missing much of her childhood. Her resilience and help of family members pushed her through this experience and she was ultimately blessed with a full and wonderful life. She never let her scars define her or hold her back. Her scars were a symbol of what she overcame, and her experience impacted her view of people; and her love of people gave her an opportunity share an enduring message of hope. She often wrote notes of encouragement to those with similar tragedies.

Jane had a zest and joy for life that was truly remarkable. Her hope and faith were in her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and she once wrote: “At my lowest God is my hope; at my darkest God is my light; at my weakest God is my strength; at my saddest God is my comforter.”

Her favorite bible verse is Psalm 23:  The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not lack. He makes me lie down in green pastures: he leads me beside the still waters. He restores my soul; he leads me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Yea though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for you are with me; your rod and your staff they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: you anoint my head with oil; my cup runs over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.”

A Celebration of Life will be held at a future date.
