Sheila J. Miller, 75, of Kahoka, passed away at 9:11pm on Friday, July 1, 2022, at Scotland County Hospital in Memphis Missouri with her family by her side.

Sheila was born on December 23, 1946, in Waukegan, Illinois to Don Horton Sr., and Helen (Walker) Horton. She married the love of her life, Charles Miller, on April 19, 1966. Together they raised four children and made a wonderful life together until his passing in 2015.

In addition to her husband, Sheila was predeceased by her parents, and her beloved companion “P” (Prince).

She is survived by her children, Charles (Paula) Miller, of Kahoka, John (Faith) Miller of Revere, Daniel (Mary) Miller, also of Kahoka, and daughter Angela (Roy) Gilbert, also of Kahoka, 9 grandchildren, and 15 (and a half), great-grandchildren; brother Don (Debbie) Horton Jr.; sisters Loretta (John) Foster, of Winthrop Harbor, Illinois, and Carol Ann (Patrick) Haage of Keokuk, Iowa.
