OBITUARY: Mary Louise Miller


Mary Louise Miller, 69, of Cedar Hill, Tennessee, passed away peacefully on Saturday, December 16, 2023.

Born August 7, 1954, in Clarksville, Tennessee, she was the daughter of the late Harold & Evelyn Kennedy.

She married her high school sweetheart and longtime friend, Carl Daniel Miller, in September of 1972. They had just celebrated their 51st wedding anniversary.

Mary was a dedicated mother first and foremost. She treasured her children and embraced every moment with them. She especially loved her role as “Nana”. She was a loving and devoted wife, mother, nana, aunt, sister, daughter and friend. She had a smile that would light up the room.

She lived a full life as a wonderful mother, homemaker, and worked at Jo Byrns. Mary was a living example of Ephesians 4:32 “And be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving one another, just as God also forgave you with Christ.”

All whom loved her dearly will never forget her smile, charm, grace and undying love.
