Verle Miller

Born June 1, 1918 into a family of eight children, she is survived by one sister, Bobbie Peacock of Avery, Texas, two daughters Sharon Smith of Bryan, Texas, and Linda Thurmond of Tahoka, Texas, three grandchildren, three great grandchildren, and two great-great grandchildren.

Living 100 years, she has seen WWI, WWII, and the Great Depression. She has seen the invention of electricity into common households, modern air conditioning and heat, television, home phones, cell phones, and computers. She saw the first man on the moon. A whole century of change.

We now lay her to rest at Trinity Memorial Park in Big Springs, Texas alongside her husband, Carlton on Monday, September 24, 2018 at 2:00 pm with graveside services. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be sent to Encompass Hospice or Aggieland Humane Society. A special thank you to Encompass Hospice and to the staff at Park Place Assisted Living.


  1. Sharon, Doug and I are so sorry for the loss of your Mom. We are so thankful to have gotten to know Mrs. Miller. She was a very special lady, and will be missed. Thank you for allowing us to share such a special time as her 100th. birthday! Always cherish the good memories! Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

  2. Dear family, in this time of sorrow, my condolences are with you. And may these beautiful words from the Scriptures help you to endure, for Jehovah is the God of all comfort. “Do not be anxious…..but in everything by prayer and supplication along with thanksgiving, let your petitions be made known to God; and the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and your mental powers by means of Christ Jesus.” Isaiah 26:4; 2 Corinthians 1:3-4; Philippians 4:6-7 NWT. Peace and happy memories of Mrs. Miller be with you.

  3. We are sisters from another mother Sharon and will always be. I am grateful to have met your momma and you, mine. I’ll miss helping to decorate for her and shop for her. Now that her journey on earth has ended she will find new paths to walk along with your daddy. She leaves here knowing that you cared for her every need above and beyond what some may think. Now, you too have a new journey ahead of you. Walk with your head held high and be at ease knowing that your momma is in a beautiful place. May peace find its way too you and your family during this time of adjustment.
