Nancy Josephine Ladle Miller passed away peacefully on May 1, 2021. She was born April 9, 1936 to Ralph Burdette Ladle and Alice Harris in Saint Anthony, Idaho. She had a brother Harris Dwight Ladle who preceded her in death.

She married Colin Harris Miller on August 21, 1957 in the Salt Lake City Temple.Together, they raised four children-Craig, Scott, Elizabeth Ann, and Peter, 14 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren. She showered each one with love and made each one feel special.

Nancy was educated in Provo, Utah later receiving a Bachelor of Science degree from Brigham Young University. She taught home economics in Pleasant Grove and in Salt Lake City. She was passionate about cooking and baking and her home was a reflection of her talents in interior design. Her kitchen was her sanctuary. Thousands of meals were her gift to those who came to visit.

Nancy loved to sew, quilt, paint and garden. She also enjoyed family history research, preserving special photos and histories including her own, and loved attending the temples of the church. She served as an ordinance worker in the Bogota Colombia Temple.

Nancy was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. She was a dedicated visiting teacher and minister. Her callings included primary teacher, boy scout committee member, and ward and stake Relief Society presidencies. She served as a missionary on two missions with her husband, Colin (Mission President - Bilbao Spain and President of the Mission Training Center in Bogota Colombia).

Nancy will be dearly missed. Ultimately, Nancy was in the purest sense a disciple of Christ, and continues on the covenant path towards Him with her beloved Colin.

Nancy holds a very special place in our hearts. We would visit them in their beautiful Bountiful home after a long camping journey west from Detroit. I will always remember the fabulous meals Nancy would cook up and her genuine sense of humor. We so looked forward to spending time with the “Utah cousins!” Mom always said she couldn’t wait to see her “sister;” they always shared many silly stories of their time together when they were so young. Later, after my parents moved to the Provo area, she and Nancy connected often. This was a blessing to mom as she so treasured her closeness with Nancy.
She and Colin were so very kind to look after mom in her older years; and very generous to include my brother in their gatherings. I so appreciated this benevolence she and Colin always showed to my family. Her generous spirit and sincere love of life will be greatly missed. I pray the wonderful memories you all have of your dear mother and grandmother will give you comfort during this sad time. I pray the reunion of our loved ones is one of great welcoming and exaltation.

Sister Miller was like a second mother to me. She was always kind and patient, especially with a kid that didn't have much of a filter and even less tact. She and Brother Miller included me in so much of their life. I received a great example of the gospel in their home and how their family lived. That example has been a profound blessing in my life.
My heart goes out to all of the family. I can only imagine the mixture of feelings at this time. My family's thoughts and prayers are with you.

Dear Miller family, We love you and cherish our memories with each of you during the many years in the Bountiful 34th Ward. Nancy was my first visiting teaching companion here in the ward. She was a spiritual ,scriptural teacher in the homes we visited.As a newly wed and young mother I admired her amazing homemaking skills. She had several of the newbie couples to dinner and gave us the royal treatment... sparkling china, stemware....delicious lasagne etc. I wanted to emulate her in every way! In a YW activity as a counselor we got to go swimming with her at Deseret Gym. She was that mature mentor for me. When she was Relief Society president she asked me to demonstrate how to make Chinese Fortune Cookies!!!???That was such a stretch for me.!! Calvin Klein’s “Eternity “Perfume reminds me of her anytime —anywhere I go.She had designer clothing often created by herself and always looked stylish. She hired young women in the ward to help her clean her house thereby teaching them how to do that Both of our daughters were lucky enough to learn from her. Bishop Miller and Nancy enriched our lives in countless ways. Our Burningham family feel blessed for having had this association with The Miller family..You’ve all done well by the Miller name. Prayers for your peace and comfort Much love, Kelly and Lori Burningam
