Obituary ~ Edward Miller

Edward J. Miller was born near Stuttgart, Kansas on June 7, 1876, the son of Mike and Katie Miller, and passed away at his home in Logan on October 16, 1955, at the age of 79 years, 4 months and 9 days.

At an early age he was baptized into the Emmanuel Lutheran church at Stuttgart, transferring to the Trinity Lutheran, and later moving his membership to St. Peter's church in Logan.

As a young man he worked on the Henry Merklein Sr., farm. After acquiring his own farm south of Stuttgart, he married Matilda Pralle and the home was blessed with two children: August of Phillipsburg and an adopted daughter, Mrs. Gertrude Widener of Boulder, Colorado. His wife, Matilda, died in 1922.

Edward married Elizabeth Barbara Schauer on August 20, 1923, and they made their home on the farm until his retirement in 1942 when they moved to Logan. He had enjoyed wonderful health until July of this year when illness came. He never complained of his illness and was not confined to bed until two days before his death. He was a hard worker all of his life and leaves to mourn his passing many friends.

Survivors of this family include: August, his son; Mrs. Widener, his daughter; his wife, Elizabeth; one brother, Mike Miller, Stuttgart; five sisters, Mrs. Maggie Merklein, Route 4, Phillipsburg, Mrs. Anna Vogel, Stuttgart, Mrs. Barbara Detimer, Kensington, Mrs. Frieda Miller, Phillipsburg, Mrs. Clara Bertholf, Ft. Collins, Colorado; six grandchildren and 23 nieces and nephews.


We wish to thank our relatives and friends for their many deeds of kindness, for the beautiful floral offerings and other expressions of sympathy extended to us in our recent bereavement. We especially want to thank the neighbors and Ladies Aid for their gifts of food and help, the minister for his words of comfort and also those who furnished the music. Your thoughtfulness will never be forgotten.

Mrs. Ed Miller, Mr. and Mrs. August Miller,

 Mrs. Gertrude Widener and children.
