GREEN BAY, Wis. - Carol D. Miller, 80, Green Bay, passed away peacefully with her family by her side Saturday, Oct. 27, 2012. She was born May 17, 1932, in Green Bay, to the late Morris and Esther (Bernston) Erickson. In 1954, Carol married Robert John Miller. Carol was a lifetime member of Bridge Point First Baptist Church.
Carol worked as a waitress and bartender at the Elks Club for over 10 years and also at St. Mary's Hospital as a certified nurse's aide for over 30 years. She loved to travel and see new places and loved being "Up North" in the U.P. at the "Hide Away Haven," fishing, making quilts, afghans, doing different crafts, and she made each child, grandchild, and great-grandchild their own Christmas stocking. She worked on the family history search and went back into the 1600s, put a book together with the information and made sure family and extended family received a copy. Carol also enjoyed playing cards, bingo, spending time with her family and friends, and going to Daniel O'Donnell concerts. She was always there with a smile on her face if help was needed. She lived life to the fullest.
Survivors include her loving husband, Bob; four children, Debra Lee (Kevin Tatrow) Wilson, Patti Jean (Peter) Seidel, Michael Robert Miller, and Diane Marie (Dan Ambrosius) Williams; seven grandchildren, Jennifer (Greg) Bosetski, Kristal (Jason) Perry, Jaimie (Tim) Green, Jennifer Seidel, Christine Miller, Joseph (friend, Michelle) Williams, and Dawn (Chris) Rentmeester; and nine great-grandchildren, Paige and Braylin Bosetski, Samantha Wilson, Nolan Perry, Caitlyn and Nora Rentmeester, Josel Williams, and Eli and Elayna Green.
