Ellen Miller Obituary

On March 31st, 2024, Ellen Callender Miller went home to be with our Lord and family. Ellen was born on December 24th, 1930, in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania. She was the remaining daughter to Alexander and Edith Callender, sister to Winnifred Shumaker who preceded her.  Once beloved wife of the late Kenneth B. Miller, Ellen was blessed with three children: John (Teri), Kenneth Dale (Sandra), and Gwyneth (Charles). Her family continued to grow as the seasons passed by and her grandchildren were born. Ashley, John Jr., Kenneth, and Alexandria were dearly cherished by Ellen, as well as her great-grandchildren, Aurora, and Nolan. Ellen worked for A+P Grocery Payroll Department before marrying Kenneth in 1953. Her life then revolved around her family, friends, and garden. She nurtured those around her with tender care and love. From this, all of those that she cared for have nothing but appreciation for Ellen’s dedication (and baking). Ellen was the matriarch of the Miller family and to those that had crossed her path. Her shining soul will be terribly missed by her friends and her family. 

“The Gentle Gardener” by Edgar A. Guest

I'd like to leave but daffodils

to mark my little way,

To leave but tulips red and white

behind me as I stray.

I'd like to pass away from earth

and feel I'd left behind

But roses and forget-me-nots for

all who come to find.

I'd like to sow the barren spots

with all the flowers of earth,

To leave a path where those who come

should find but gentle mirth.

And when at last I'm called upon

to join the heavenly throng

I’d like to feel along my way I'd left

no sign of wrong.

And yet the cares are many

and the fours of toil are few.

There is not time enough on earth

for all I'd like to do.

But, having lived and having toiled,

I'd like the world to find

Some little touch of beauty

that my soul had left behind.
