WYOMISSING — Ruth L. Miller, 76, of 1801 Cambridge Avenue, Apt. A22, passed away Tuesday, Oct. 5, 2021, in her home surrounded by her loving family.

She was born on Nov. 7, 1944, in Des Plaines, Illinois, a daughter of the late Walter and Dorothy (Petersen) Schilling.

On Oct. 16, 1965, in Blakely, she married Richard P. Miller. Together they shared 55 years of marriage. She retired as a secretary from Graco Children’s Products after 24 years of service. Ruth was a member of Victory Baptist Church in Reading.

She enjoyed spending time with her family, especially her grandchildren. Her children all agree that she was the most sacrificial mother as she lived for taking care of her family and was always doing something for someone else. Her Christian walk never wavered despite going through six years of cancer treatments. She always had a smile on her face no matter how she felt or what she was going through at the time.

In addition to her husband, Ruth is survived by two sons, Wade B. Miller, of Virginia, and Brent R. Miller and his wife, Angela, of Mohnton; a daughter, Lynnette D. Gessner and her husband, Marc, of Wellsville; a grandson, Nathan Miller; three granddaughters, Alanna Miller, Jessica Miller, and Katie Gessner; a brother, Alan Schilling his wife, Marge, of Illinois; and many nieces, nephews, and cousins.

In addition to her parents, Ruth was preceded in death by her father-in-law and mother-in-law, Wade and Lillian (Peterson) Miller; and a sister-in-law, Patricia, and her husband, Dr. Richard Albright.
