Carolyn G Drake Miller, daughter of Fred and Myrtle Drake, born on September 28, 1940, in Des Moines Iowa. Moving with her family to Milo when she was a toddler. On June 8, 1957, she was united in marriage to Charles "Bud" Miller in Milo, Iowa. They were blessed with 3 children, Elizabeth, Charles, and Michael. After she was married, she became a farmer and worked on the farm for many years. Always cooking for everyone, she always said no-one will ever leave hungry. Besides cooking at home, she graduated college and then cooked for the school and then moved to the Knoxville Hospital kitchen.
She loved her family, her siblings and her nieces and nephews. Every Sunday they would all pile into their cars and head to Grandma's house. She loved to read and travel. She was famously known for her fried chicken. She was a loving wife, mother, sister, aunt, and friend, but her favorite title was when she became a grandma.
Carolyn died on May 7, 2021, in her home surrounded by the love of her family. She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband, Charles "Bud" Miller, Daughter-in-law Teresa Miller, Siblings, Riley (Hilda) Drake, Freda (Wilfred) Herman, John (JoAnn) Drake, Charlotte (Howard) Johnson.
Left to cherish her memory are her children, Elizabeth (BenYahia) Cheriet, Charles Miller, Michael Miller, and her #1 grandson Patrick Miller. Her siblings Beverly Allsup, Dixie Conkling both of Winterset, Roberta Hatfield, and Judy Murray both of Des Moines. And many nieces and nephews she loved dearly. And all the kids that came through her door, and there were many.
