Vivian Juanita Miller, 83, passed away peacefully at St. Francis Medical Center in Cape Girardeau, surrounded by family on the evening of April 30, 2023, after succumbing to the effects of Alzheimers and Dementia. She was born April 29, 1940, in Silver Mines, Missouri, daughter of Addison and Mary Juanita Guinn Stacy. She and Robert "Bob" Miller were married December 14, 1957 in Fredericktown, Missouri.
In her 83 years of life, she was fiercely devoted: to her hobbies of traveling, fishing, crafting, and playing cards; sharing her vocal and instrumental talents; and, most importantly, her love of God, all of which she instilled into her family. She was a faithful member of New Bethel Baptist Church.
