GLADSTONE — Henrietta D. Miller, 87, of Gladstone, passed away Wednesday, March 18, 2020, at Bishop Noa Home in Escanaba. She was born on Sept. 24, 1932, in Escanaba, the daughter of Carl and Barbara (Young) Olson. Henrietta was raised and attended school in Gladstone and was a 1951 graduate of Gladstone High School. The former Henrietta Olson married Robert Miller on Nov. 29, 1952, at Bethany Lutheran Church. Together, the couple shared many wonderful years of marriage and raised three children, Jim, Diane, and Mary. Henrietta was a waitress at the Dew Drop Inn located in Gladstone.
