  Margaret (Peg) Ann Miller, 74, of Lamar, MO, formerly of Uniontown, PA passed away on Wednesday, June 14, 2017 at Barton County Memorial Hospital.

  Peg, born on December 31, 1942, was the only child of Evelyn and Wilson Romesburg of Uniontown, PA.  She graduated from Uniontown High School in 1960 and Grove City College in 1964 with degrees in English and French.

  In 1965, Peg married her high school sweetheart, Michael L. Miller.  From this union, they were blessed with three sons:  Dr. Erik M. Miller of Lamar, Brett J. Miller of Lamar, and Dr. Kirk A. Miller of Kansas City, MO.  They blessed Peg with six grandchildren:  Brianna and Gabrielle, daughters of Dr. Erik and Brenda McDaniel Miller; Carmen and Wilson, daughter and son of Brett Miller and Marsha Swavely Miller; and Simon and Eva, son and daughter of Dr. Kirk and Stephanie Brown Miller.

  Mike’s career as a chemical engineer moved the family around the country, but Peg always found a church home, a teaching job, and a home that was comfortable for the family and welcoming to all the neighborhood kids who frequently stopped by.  She taught English, French, Spanish, and gifted classes over the course of her career, and even spent a few years substitute teaching.

  Peg’s favorite activities were spending time with the Lord, traveling, and doting on her grandchildren.  She attended as many of their activities as she could, whether it be locally, in Kansas City, or traveling to a meet.  Having all her family together brought her great joy.

  After 46 years of marriage, Mike passed away in January 2012.

  Peg married Earl Shofler of Webb City in September 2016.  With him, he brought a son, Shane Shofler, and daughter, Heather Stilley into the family as well as Heather’s daughters, Chase and Wren Stilley.  Peg, or Granny as many people called her by now, just couldn’t stop smiling at all the blessings in her life.

  Peg was an active member of the Oakton United Methodist Church, including teaching Sunday School for many years, singing on the Praise Team, and participating in the women’s group.  She had a soft heart for those in need, and never hesitated to give of her time and talents.

  Funeral services will be held Friday, Jun 23 at Oakton United Methodist Church at 11:00 a.m.  The family will receive friends from 6-7 p.m. at Daniel Funeral Home on Thursday, June 22.

  Flowers may be sent to Daniel Funeral Home in Lamar.  Contributions are suggested to the Jefferson County Christian School in care of the funeral home.

Peg was a very special, caring & dedicated teacher. I worked with her at Nevada High School. In visiting with Peg it didn't take long to realize that her love for God, family & friends were her #1 priority. Your family has been richly blessed to have had such a wonderful, mom, grandma, and wife to share your life with. May all the wonderful memories you shared be a source of peace and comfort. She will be missed by all who knew and loved her but she is now with the Lord she loved and served.

I was so sorry to hear of Peg's passing. It was my pleasure to know Peg as the parent of one of her gifted students and as a fellow educator. She and I traveled together to the NY Stock Exchange for a teacher's workshop and had many great times together. I offer my deepest sympathy to her entire family. I pray your special memories will bring you all peace and comfort in the days ahead.

I phone interviewed Peg for our French teaching opening at Nevada High school while she was still living in Pennsylvania....she was so dynamic and interesting...we were delighted she agreed to move to Nevada and take our French and gifted teaching assignment. I got to know her well and always enjoyed her energy and intellect!! I pray for your peace and comfort.

We are saddened to hear of the death of Peggy. She was married to our cousin, Micky Miller, and we would see her at our family picnics way back when. She was a charming and beautiful person. Our sincere condolences to the family. May God bless you and give you comfort.

So sorry to hear of Peg's passing. She touched many lives as a teacher in the Nevada school district, with mine being one of them. She was an excellent educator with a kind heart. Prayers for peace and comfort.

I was lucky enough to have Mrs. Miller as a teacher from 2000-2004. You hear people talk about the one teacher that made a difference in their life-that was Mrs. Miller. She was always there, always supportive, guiding and encouraging. I am so thankful to have known her, to have been one of her "cherubs." I am deeply sorry for her loss.

I am deeply sorry to Peg's family for their loss. I am devastated. I thought the world of Peg and I loved the way she treated people. It didn't matter who they were. She was the kindest person I knew. I know she is in heaven and she has met my daughter which gives me great comfort. I loved her and I will miss her.
