Passing of Sue Miller

(March 9, 1953 - April 18, 2023)

Susan A. Miller, age 70, passed away on April 18, 2023 at Naples Community Hospital in Naples, Florida.

Sue was born March 9, 1953 in Waterloo, Iowa to Jack and Marian Miller. She graduated from University of Northern Iowa with a bachelors degree in teaching and later earned her masters from University of Wisconsin Stevens Point. She taught pre-school, kindergarten and first grade at schools in Iowa, Wisconsin, Ohio and Kentucky before retiring to Marco Island, Florida in 2012.

Sue’s retirement years were filled with volunteering and service to others. She was an inspiration to many and a friend to all. She had the unique ability to engage people on a very deep and spiritual level. She touched the hearts of everyone she met.

Sue donated her time, talents and financial resources to numerous organizations including: Wesley United Methodist Church, Our Daily Bread Pantry, Rookery Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve, Avow Hospice, Habitat for Humanity of Collier County, St. Matthews House, Grace Place for Children and Families and Living Heritage Foundation Scholarship Fund (Guatemala). There was no limit to her generosity to causes meeting basic human needs and contributing to spiritual development.

She especially treasured her role as lay leader at Wesley United Methodist Church and prayer leader with Our Daily Bread Food Pantry.

Sue was well known for her photography of creatures and landscapes around Marco Island. Her pictures graced the screens of countless friends and followers sent with such excitement about the beauty of God’s creations.

Sue is survived by two brothers: John Miller of Marco Island and Jeff (Pam) Miller of Clive, Iowa and three nephews: Bryan (Annaliese) Miller of Lake Elmo, Minnesota, Andrew (Amber) Miller of Eden Prairie, Minnesota, Ben (Alicia) Miller of Omaha, Nebraska and one niece, Alison Miller of Chicago, Illinois. Sue is preceded in death by her parents and brother Jim Miller.

The family suggests that memorial contributions can be made in Sue’s honor to any organization supporting human needs and spiritual development or any cause chosen by the donor. It would please her to be an inspiration to others and honor God in all ways. Those wanting the family to distribute memorial contributions can send checks to Jeff Miller, 13966 Hawthorn Dr., Clive, IA 50325
