Lucy B. Miller, 81, 203 Edge Ave., Valparaiso, FL 32580 passed away at The Westwood Rehabilitation and Nursing Home in Ft. Walton Bch., FL, on July 2, 2016. She moved to Valparaiso in 1961 when her husband was stationed at Eglin AFB. Born in Minneapolis, NC, Lucy was the youngest child of the late Clarence and Pearl Erwin Hicks. She was also preceded in death by five brothers; two sisters; and her beloved second daughter, Sandra Faye Morris.

Lucy is survived by her loving husband of 64 years, Kermit H. Miller; daughter Christina Dianne Head and husband David of Niceville; daughter Deborah Anne Kiser and husband Jim of Tampa; son Kermit H. Miller, Jr., and son-in-law David Morris of Valparaiso; daughter-in-law Kelly Lopez Miller of Ft. Walton Bch; sister Mildred Howell of Columbia, SC; six grandchildren (Tom, Veronica, Danny, Tanya, Amber and Nick); two honorary grandchildren (Rockie and Andrew); and seven great grandchildren (Devon, Logan, Skylar, Elizabeth, Jaylee, Ella and Reese).

Lucy was very active in her children's school activities and made many sacrifices in her younger years to ensure they could pursue their dreams. She was very proud of their accomplishments and instilled in them a love of family and respect. She loved to garden, play bingo and other games, read, cook, and attend family gatherings. Lucy dedicated most of her life as a wife, mother and homemaker, but she did work a few years as a federal employee at the Eglin A.F.B. Hospital.
