Sally Ann Miller, 82
Sally Ann Miller, 82, of Allegan passed away Friday, Aug. 9, 2019, following years of battling health issues. Through her final months, she received special care at Ely Manor where she made friends with all.
Born May 9, 1937, in Indiana, Pa., she was the daughter of the late John W. “Jack” and Blanche E. (Wolfe) Williams and was the wife of the late Dean Charles Miller.
Sally loved talking with people, whether it be a stranger in a store or chatting with friends over a meal. She loved and supported her family and friends unconditionally. Spending time on the telephone was a favorite pastime of Sally’s as it helped her keep up to speed with what was happening in her loved one’s lives.
Sally and Dean owned and operated “Dean’s Bar,” which later became known as the “Longbranch.” Also in her work history in Allegan were Sears, Hallmark Greeting Cards and Alexander’s Pharmacy.
Going for car rides and hitting garage sales were an important hobby for Sally, as she loved cruising the countryside and looking for treasures.
Sally is survived by her children, Sarah Miller and Tom (Erica) Miller and four grandchildren, Michael “Mac” Warner, Molly Warner, Madeline Miller and Adam Miller. Along with her parents and husband, she was preceded in death by her beloved son Gregory Charles Miller.
A private graveside service for the family will take place at Oakwood Cemetery. A celebration of life luncheon will be Sunday, Sept. 15, from 2 to 4 p.m. at Hartman Conference Center, 690 N. Eastern Ave., Allegan, MI. All friends and family are welcome.
Memorial donations may be made to the American Diabetes Association, P.O. Box 15829, Arlington, VA 22215. Gorden Funeral Residence, Allegan Chapel, is assisting with arrangements.
