She was born Nov. 21, 1927, at Darlington, to George E. and Rose V. Peterson.

On May 3, 1946, she was married to Philip A. Miller. He died March 29, 2000.

Survivors include: daughters Rosemary Sprunger of Auburn and Carol (Byron) Cohee of Macy; sons, Ed (Becky) Miller of Ligonier, Mike Miller of Topeka and Dave Miller of Spencerville; 15 grandchildren; 27 great-grandchildren; and two great-great-grandchildren.

Phyllis was a member of Cosperville Baptist Church in Cosperville.

She was a supportive basketball coach’s wife for many years and moved to several communities in the north half of Indiana. In later years she and her husband traveled throughout the country delivering RVs and conversion vans. Always contented with simple pleasures and natural adventures, Phyllis appreciated the opportunity to see the country and travel with her husband, as well as supporting all of her children’s activities and sports. She gave a lot and needed little. She counted many friends and was loyal to them all.

Phyllis’ remains will be interred with her husband’s in their childhood home community of Darlington at a date to be determined.

A private family memorial service will be held in the near future.

Legacy Cremation and Remembrance Center is helping with the arrangements.
