So sorry to hear of miss Millers passing. She always was such a sweet hearted lady. I remember her fondly from my childhood, attending Antioch. Always a kind word, even for the unruly Alsip kids. We loved her so much.

Iola was the secretary at Jones elementary school when I was a child. She always had the sweetest demeanor and always a smile and tender voice for all of us worried littles. I remember how she accompanied our little school performances on the piano. I always admired her talent. She never forgot my name. She would see me and say hello with her sweet smile. I have had the pleasure of teaching many of her grand children and great grandchildren over the years and they all have that same sweet demeanor handed down to them through their grandmother Iola. We are all so blessed to have been touched by her sweet soul and now heaven is rejoicing as she is truly at home. My condolences to the family I know she will be missed.

My condolences to the Miller family. Iola was a friend to me my whole life. She was loving, caring and the sweetest lady I have known. I’m sure Junior was waiting for her with open arms.
