WARREN, Ohio (MyValleyTributes) – Sandra Lynn Miller, age 76, of Warren, Ohio, passed away at her home on Monday, September 9, 2019 with her children by her side.
She was born in Detroit, Michigan on March 2, 1943, the daughter of the late Grace Buyers McIntyre.
Her spirited nature found her living in Kansas, Washington D.C., California and Madrid, Spain. Sandy studied nursing and worked in numerous nursing homes. This path came naturally to her, due to her caring nature toward the elderly. In later years, she enjoyed working in insurance sales.
She loved genealogy and spent much of her free time researching her her own family history; as well as, helping others do the same. In her spare time, Sandra loved to sing, play guitar, piano, banjo and even the accordion! She adored writing songs, even publishing ‘”Happy Anniversary (Fifty Years Together)” in 1982.
Sandra was a bit of an artist as well, with her crocheting, sewing and crafting. Her dazzlingly painted ceramic nativity became a family tradition each Christmas under the tree.
Sandra raised six children, “Patty”, “Chuckie”, “Jimmy”, Dorothy”, “Robbie” and “Missy”.
On December 16, 1975, she married Harold L. Miller, extending her family with his daughters, Susan Pack of Niles, Ohio and Lynn Price of Warren, Ohio. Sandra and Harold enjoyed more than 40 years together.
Sandy worked many odd jobs before retiring to become a stay-at-home mother and grandmother.
She is survived by her children, Patricia Hemberger of Braceville, Ohio, Charles Williams of Warren, Ohio, James Williams of New York, New York, Dorothy Raymundo of Celebration, Florida, Melissa Miller of Warren Ohio and Susan Pack of Niles, Ohio; as well as, her 12 grandchildren, 12 great-grandchildren and three great-great-grandchildren. She leaves her best friends, Carol Mason and Nancy Webber and last but not least, her two cats, Katie and Rainbow.
She is preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Harold Miller; son, Robert Miller; a daughter, Lynn Price; granddaughter, Layla Manuel and her brothers and sisters.
