Leah Miller, 88, died Monday, November 21, 2022 at Windsor Manor, Vinton. Memorial services will be 11:00 a.m. Saturday, December 3, 2022 at Blessed Hope Church, Vinton. Van Steenhuyse-Teahen Funeral Home of Vinton is caring for Leah's family.
Leah is survived by five sons: Rick (Jackie) Miller of Rowlett, TX, Gary (Kathy) Miller of La Porte City, Doug Miller of Ankeny, Greg (Nancy) Miller of Humboldt and Dwight (Wendy) Miller of Broxton, GA; one daughter, Dianne (Jim) Blocker of Oxford, MI; numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren; and two sisters-in-law, Evelyn Covington of Hiawatha and Vivian Covington of Vinton.
She was preceded in death by her husband of 62 years, Raymond; one son, Bradley Miller; two brothers, Lyle and Burl Covington; one sister and brother-in-law, Betty (Floyd) Long.
Leah was born March 15, 1934 at Vinton, the daughter of Cecil and Gertie Mae (Hopper) Covington. She attended school at Vinton. On April 8, 1950, Leah married Raymond Miller at Brandon. He preceded her in death on January 23, 2013. Leah spent her life employed in the best industry possible-that which allows you to be a wife, mom, grandma and great-grandma.
In her leisure time, Leah enjoyed working crossword puzzles, playing cards and participating in church. Leah loved her children, but the love she had for her grandchildren and great-grandchildren was endless.
A memorial fund has been established.
On behalf of the family, a special thank you is extended to the Windsor Manor staff for the loving care that was given to Leah. Condolences may be left at www.teahenfuneralhome.com.
