CLAUDIA ANN STONE MILLER
October 17, 1945 – June 5, 2019
Claudia Ann Stone Smith Miller of Frierson, Louisiana joined her Father, Jesus Christ; her parents, Dan and Cecil Stone; and her beloved, Joseph Miller in heaven on Wednesday, June 5, 2019. As a three-time cancer survivor and warrior, she lost the battle to AML leukemia at the young age of 73. She was surrounded by the love and prayers of her family and friends in her last days.
She loved her students, pink flamingos, Mexican food, Garth Brooks, Hallmark movies, and anything she could plant in the ground. She collected lighthouses, Christmas decorations, pictures, and people. Once you met Granny, you were part of the family. She always had unconditional love, an open door, a listening ear, and a home-cooked meal for anyone that needed it. She has been described as selfless, kind, strong, and a beautiful soul. She was a best friend, a superhero, and an angel to her family and friends. Her legacy lives on in the lives of all those that she touched.
She was “Mama” to Chris, Del, Joel, and Matt; “Granny” to Danelle, Amanda, Mikie, Kara, Julie, Joel, Storm, Rachel, Kennedy, and Kade; and great-grandmother to Draven, Erica, Christopher, Emma, Joseph, Austin, Tyler, Jaxon, Chloe, Laney, Lexii, Hendrix, Morrison, Damien, Scarlett, Checkers and Willie. She was step-mother to James, Dan, Joey, Lisa, and Sheri. Honorary family members include Andra, Sandy, Becky, Stephanie, Jared, Zoey, Landon, her friends from the COA support group, and her colleagues at Southern Hills Elementary School.
She was preceded in death by her parents and husband. She is survived by her four children and their spouses, five step-children and their spouses, twenty grandchildren and their spouses, and over twenty great-grandchildren.
Visitation will be held at Centuries Memorial Funeral Home, 8801 Mansfield Rd. in Shreveport, LA on Sunday, June 9, 2019 at 1:30 PM with a celebration of life service to follow at 2:30 PM. Pallbearers will be Chris Smith, Joel Smith, Matt Smith, Joel Smith II, James Miller & Todd Irvin
