By on December 7, 2011

Mary V. Miller of Landis Homes went to be with her Lord Monday, Nov. 28, 2011 at the age of 84.

She was the wife of Lloyd H. Miller and the daughter of the late John L. and Anna M. Drescher.

A homemaker, she was a mother and friend to many. She was known for the welcoming way she received people into her home at Farmdale. People would stop by for a chat, a cup of coffee, a meal or a place to stay. You would find her in her kitchen preparing food almost any time or providing transportation for someone who needed it. A member of the Chestnut Hill Mennonite Church, she was a patient listener, a philanthropist and a champion for God.

Surviving her, besides her husband of 64 years, are six children: Lloyd D., husband of Sharon Miller, of Lancaster; Joyce G., wife of Vaughn Good, of Bird-in-Hand; Eugene D., husband of Candace Miller, of Orrville, Ohio; Arlene Y., wife of Douglas Weaver, of Sarasota, Fla.; Terri L. Michael, of Lancaster; and Denise R. Miller, of Lititz; five grandsons; two great-grandchildren; two brothers: John M., husband of Betty Drescher, of Quakertown; and Luke M., husband of June Drescher, of Harrisonburg, Va.; one sister: Ruth, wife of James Glick, of Dover, Ohio; and Nancy, wife of her late brother, James M. Drescher, of Brownstown.

Among the people who called her mom are: Sandy, wife of Paul Kralicek, of Willow Street; Heather, wife of Roger Waite, of Elizabethtown; and Karen Trickett, of York. She will be dearly missed.

A funeral service was held on Dec. 6 at the Habecker Mennonite Church, Lancaster. Interment took place in the adjoining church cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Friendship Ministries, 1149 East Oregon Rd., Lititz, PA 17543.
