Cheryl L. Miller, age 69, of Wilmington, DE, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, January 22, 2014.

Cheryl was born in Richmond, VA on November 7, 1944, and was the daughter of the late Frank Miller and Marcia Shelton Miller. She worked for many years as an expediter for Strawbridge and Clothier at the company’s Christiana Mall store.

Cheryl will be dearly missed.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her brother, Ronald Shelton. Cheryl is survived by her children, Christine R. Ledden of Elkton, MD, Mark J. Ledden of Somerset, PA, and Marcia L. Ledden (Gerald Peterson, Jr.) of Middletown, DE; 5 grandchildren, Caitlyn Ledden, Ivan Ledden, Brock Ledden, Kylianna Peterson, and Timothy Peterson; and 1 great grandchild, Tyler Koppel.

Services and interment will be held privately.

  • Christine, Marcia, and family
    As I remember your Mom and our friendship over the years, I remember what a sweet, caring woman she was. She loved her children more than herself, always thinking of them first. She loved her nephews, too, always treated them like her own. I still miss talking to her, and hearing her great laugh. We might have been x sisters- in-law, but we were friends from when we first met. I know you and your family miss her so much.
    Love, A. Lena and family
