Dear Val, and the entire Miller Family
Val, I am so sorry to hear about the passing of your wonderful wife. I did not know her that well, but knew she was one hell of a lady. 66 years with her Val is truly amazing for the love and stability you both showed to each other, and the family you built. I remember talking with her one time, she was in your car knitting or something, and I had the greatest visit with her, while you were in Wholesale. Doug, Charlie, Billy, Mary Lou, Diane, Tammy, Bret and the entire family, have peace in the Lord!

We were sad to read about Barb's passing. Our deepest sympathy to Val and her entire family. It was a pleasure to get to know Barb when I worked at Union Hill. A truly amazing and honorable woman with a beautiful smile.
God Bless

Dear Val and family:

I have been watching through the pictures, what a beautiful tribute to Barb. I attended Le Sueur Public school with Mary Lou. It is always hard to loose a loved one and it greatly shown how much love she had for all of her family. My sincerest condolences to all.

Dear Val and family: So sorry to hear about Barb's passing. Our deepest sympathy goes out to you and your family. I got to know Doug and Charlie when I was working at Wholesale Tire in Morristown.  Throughout the many years I got to know a lot of the family hauling fuel out to the farm. Also the many conversations I had with Val and Barb about the grandkids and great grandchildren. Getting to know Barb Schwatrz with our insurance needs. May God bless each and everyone of you in your time of sorrow.  Alan and Laurie Schmidtke

I am having trouble finding the words to express my deepest sympathy to Val and the whole Miller Family.  I became part of your family when my daughter Theresa married "Little" Val. I was welcomed to different events
and really enjoyed the hustle and bustle of the day. I am comforted in knowing that there is a special Guardian Angel looking down on the Miller Family. Rest in Peace Barb.

Dad Mandery and Bev Mandery met Barb for the first time September, 2019. This was a birthday celebration for Ben and myself, and my children were there. My sons immediately fell in love with Barb and her humor. We also immediately loved this woman. She was so special at this one and only time we met her. "When bulbs I lay beneath the sod for winter's sleep, my quiet trust and faith in God is strong and deep. I fear no gloom in hiding clay. For I can see bright tulips in far off May." Will Miss you Barbara.

This woman! Can I take a moment to celebrate this woman, who we loved? Wife of 66 years, Mother of 15, grandma of 60, great-grandma of 41. She showed us the joy of having a big family, taught us to be strong and determined, to always work hard, be independent and challenge anything that stands in our way. An era ended for the Miller family, but Grandma's legacy is present every day in the way we live our lives. Grandma Miller, you were simply amazing and will be missed beyond measure. ❤️

Grandma Miller will be missed in so many ways but her legacy will live forever in the hundreds of lives she touched. She was a shining example of everything a person should aspire to be. Strong and able, confident yet still humble. Hardworking in a way I can only hope to emulate. She led her clan of a family by her actions long before words became necessary. While she was kind and caring and I always knew her soft side. She was also fierce and had high expectations for her family. Grandma is legendary in so many ways, we all have our cherished memories of her Christmas gift expertise, her physical remembrance for every one of her grandchildren in the form of the afghans she made for us all; often making them while sitting in the semi in the grain line at the elevator.
 Grandma had so much love to share she managed to make every member of her prodigious family feel like the only one in the house just for a moment. She will be missed by more people than any of us realize but she will not be forgotten by a single one of them. I will continue to live my life by the example that Grandma showed me every single day of her life.
 I love you Grandma.

P. S. She also made the best apple pie I've ever tasted and I will never find its match.
