Posted Condolences:


  1. My sincere condolences to all of the Miller family on the passing of their mother, Luella.
    My parents Lawrence and Gladys Woehl, were close and dear friends through the years with both Luella and Earl and I grew up with their large family.
    I have many memories of riding the horses on weekends and in recent years hunting with Dave with my two sons. So many memories of Luella

  2. Julie,

  3. My sincere condolences. I enjoyed visiting with Lu and hearing her many stories. Beautiful lady.

  5. Our Sympathy to the Miller Family. May your Mother Rest In Peace. Carter and Kathe Kleinsasser

  6. Deepest condolences to the family. Lu is such a gentle sweet lady. She is my partner in singing Lu-Lu skip to Malou… She is content with what she have, a loving family… You will be truly missed by everyone. May your beautiful soul rest in peace!

  8. Miller Family, We are so sorry to hear of your mother’s passing. She was a strong woman and a wonderful mother. May she Rest In Peace.

  9. David and Family,
    I am sorry to hear of the passing of your mom. I really enjoyed knowing her. I have fond memories of watching her bake. She made great pies and cookies. They didn’t last long. She shared her rolled cookie recipe with me. I also tried to sneak peeks of what she put in her delicious pies.😊 We had some fun discussions about the programs on tv. ☺️ I enjoyed both of your parents and their kindness. Looking forward to the return of Jesus and seeing all of our loved ones again!

  10. I’m so sorry to hear of Luella’s passing. She was a part of my church family growing up, along with her family. Nice memories! Lost my Mom in 2015 and it’s difficult even when they have lived into their 90’s. Blessings to you during this difficult time!

  11. We want to extend our sympathies to your family. My family (Hagel family) were friends with your family for many years. Actually, I used to be able to name all of you kids by name and birth order! I always enjoyed visiting with your mom because she was so “down to earth”. And Melanie and I remained friends until she became very ill and passed. I believe of all the families whose children attended Wyard school that your Mom was the very last of the parents to pass away. Quite a fine, strong little lady!! Kind thought to you all.

  12. I am so sad to hear of Luella’s passing. She was such a sweet person. Always enjoyed time spent with them. We were all very close and I have wonderful memories of all things we did together.

  13. To the Miller Family,
    I was so sorry to hear of Luella’s passing.Please accept our sympathies. It was a treat to see her and say hello these recent years. It’s amazing how the years flew by–from all those years on the farm raising kids to her life in Carrington. I know you all have many memories of her kindness and wisdom and strength. May they bring you comfort in the future.
