Susan Faye Miller
Susan Faye Miller passed away April 26, 2023, at the age of 69 after a courageous battle with stage 4 cancer. She went to her heavenly home surrounded by family and friends.
Sue was born in Oakland, NE to Elmer and Helen Freed with big sister Kay welcoming her home. Sue graduated from Oakland-Craig High School and attended college at Wayne State. She had three major careers before retirement: Pillsbury Grain in the Merchandising Office for 11 years, Cudahy Pepperoni Manufacturing as a Computer Operator and Purchasing Manager for 13 years, and Boys Town as a Travel Coordinator for 24 years. Sue developed many close friendships through these careers that she treasured.
Sue married the love of her life Timothy C. Miller on August 14, 1987, and gained three bonus sons; Josh, Adam, and Reed. They made their home in Omaha, NE and Logan, IA. Tim and Sue enjoyed traveling, music, and spending time with their family and friends. Sue liked to plan gatherings and trips with loved ones whether camping, fishing, a local event, the zoo, or a museum. She was in many friend circles and rarely turned down an opportunity to see them. Several of these friends were like family and stayed close to her side until the end. Sue was adored by all! (She jokingly said to put this phrase in there, but it really is true!)
Sue is survived by children and grandchildren: Josh (Hannah) of York, Barrett and Clare; Adam (Denise) of Broomfield, CO, Alexis, Ben and Chris; and Reed (Tia) of Johnson, Layla, Chase, and Quinn. Sue is also survived by sister-in-law Gay (Marvin) Pesek of Eagle and brother-in-law Kevin Miller of Lincoln. Sue will be missed by her nieces Staci (Keith) Lawson of Lincoln and Kresta Schaefer of Phoenix, AZ, and nephew Scott Schaefer of Omaha along with great-nieces Freedom Schaefer, Harper and Tess Lawson, and Alyssa Schaefer.
Sue was preceded in death by her husband, parents, sister Kay Schaefer, and many furry friends.
Sue’s wishes were to be cremated. Family will greet guests during a VISITATION on Wednesday May 3, 2023 from 6:00pm-8:00pm. A FUNERAL SERVICE will be held on Thursday May 4, 2023 at 11:00am all at the West Center Chapel. Interment, Omaha National Cemetery at a later date.
Condolences may be sent to the family or the funeral home. Memorials can be given to Boys Town or to her family for later designation. The family would like to extend our sincere appreciation to Sue’s friends Chris Ayotte and Kathy Boyles and Hillcrest Hospice for their care of Sue and us over these recent months. You were our eyes, ears, and hand-holders when distance and everyday life kept us apart. Thank you.
