Eleanor Amelia Miller (neé Gordy), 92, passed away on Wednesday, January 6, 2021. Born in Porterville, Mississippi to Olief I.D. Gordy and Eleanor Glenn Thompson Gordy on August 1, 1928, she was one of five children. A life-long learner, Amelia was educated at East Mississippi Junior College, Rush Memorial School of Nursing, and Wichita State University, from which she received a master’s degree at age 60.

Amelia married Burr Van Miller, Jr., a U.S. Air Force Officer, on February 6, 1953, beginning a life of travel and adventure. She lived in fifteen of the United States, Okinawa, Guam, and the Philippines, and traveled extensively around the world absorbing new cultures and histories along the way. As an Officer’s wife, she was known as a gracious hostess to visiting dignitaries and a leader of volunteer efforts in difficult times. She raised three children through numerous deployments and moves, making each move an adventure for her children and quickly making each new house a home.

Amelia was an avid bridge player, a writer, and an exceptional seamstress and quilter, always perfecting her craft. She volunteered countless hours for her church, with Alzheimer’s patients, and numerous charities. She loved music and art and was comforted most by old hymns and gospel music.

She is survived by her three children, Burr V. "Chip" Miller III, Danelle R. Miller (Brad Berman), and Melanie Miller (Robert Ginzberg); grandchildren, Patrick Miller, Samantha Miller Marr, Kyle Marks, Joshua Ginzberg, and Benjamin Ginzberg; step-grandchildren, Lily Berman and David Berman; and great grandchildren, Adaline Kay Marr and Christopher McClellan Marr II.

Burial will be on a later date in Arlington National Cemetery, Virginia.

WATERS & HIBBERT FUNERAL HOME is in charge of arrangements.
