Mrs. Miller went to be with her Lord the evening of Wednesday, December 13th.

Mary was born January 18, 1921 in Oenaville, Texas to Homer and Lillian Edith Ligon Hobday. She married Elvis C. Miller on April 1, 1942 in Los Angeles, California.

anyone who came to visit. She was a great cook, never missed anyone's birthday, and loved her church family.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Elvis, who passed away in 1989.
