Carol Miller



Carol Anne Miller, a resident of Mariposa for 37 years, passed away peacefully on Sept. 5, 2021. She was 82 years old.

Carol was born on Nov. 21, 1938, in Seward, Pa., to Ernest and Albina Minco.

She was preceded in death by her parents, as well as two sisters, Patricia Bodner and Eileen Ecclesine, her nephew, Keith Bodner, and her beloved husband of 40 years, John M. Miller.

Carol was a devoted mother to her three sons and their wives, and an adoring grandmother to 13 grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren. She was exceptionally proud of her 42-year nursing career, 22 of which were spent serving as the Director of Nursing (DON). Her position as DON suited her perfectly, as it allowed her to nurture, train, heal and boss people around with the love, wit and sense of humor that we will all miss so much. Those signature traits are what Carol was known for and they will carry on through her remaining siblings, as well as her sons and their families.

She is survived by her son, James Miller, of Mountain Home, Idaho, and his wife, Katherine; son, Edward Miller, of Tehachapi, Calif., and his wife, Sharon; and son, Scott Miller, of San Jose, Calif., and his wife Michelle.

Other survivors include her brother, Leonard Minco of Old Hickory, Tenn., and his wife, Debbie; sister, Jo Eitreim, of Yakima, Wash.; grandchildren, Anthony McNeal, David, Jennifer, Stephanie, London, Katherine, Amanda, Brittany, Aislynn, Jacqueline, Lauren, Anthony Miller and Justin; 15 great-grandchildren, many nieces and nephews, as well as great-nieces and nephews.

Visitation was Sept. 20, 2021, at Mariposa Funeral Home.

Mass of Christian Burial was held at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church of Mariposa, on Tuesday, Sept. 21, 2021. Burial was at St. Joseph’s Catholic Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that a donation be made to your local charity of choice in the name of Carol A. Miller.
