Mrs. Miller was a native of Iota, a longtime resident of Mowata and a resident of Sulphur at the time of her death. Mrs. Miller was a devout Catholic and enjoyed going to church often. Her family always looked forward to visiting with MoMo because she would have “the best” homemade hot rolls, cinnamon rolls, and coffee waiting. She loved to cook, bake and visit with her family. She enjoyed reading her newspaper, speaking Cajun French and watching her grandchildren and great-grandchildren play.

Mrs. Miller is survived by three daughters, Cheryl M. Janise and her husband Richard of Moss Bluff, Suzanne M. Menou and her husband Harvey of Sulphur, Sheila M. McManus and her husband David of Lafayette; one son, Terry Miller and his wife Misty of Princeton, La.; one brother, J. D. Bertrand, Sr. of Iota; fifteen grandchildren and thirteen great-grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her husband, M. Z. Miller; her parents, Lecuse and Laura LeJeune Bertrand; one sister, Frances deVillentroy.

The family requests memorial contributions to St. Lawrence Catholic Church, 29031 Crowley-Eunice Hwy, Eunice 70535.
