As a young child, Ms. Miller and her family were members of the Springhill Missionary Baptist Church in Oakland LA. She loved attending every 3rd Sunday in August Homecoming at her family church. This was when the younger and older relatives, friends and families came together with a good old-fashioned celebration. There was good food, friends, family and fellowship. Growing up in this small town, jobs were few. Ms. Miller decided to move to the ‘BIG TOWN” of Crossett AR in her young adult years. she had more family there. Being a single mother with 4 small children, during those times was very hard. She made sure that her children were taken care of with the help from others loving and caring family members.
