Janet D. Miller
Mrs. Janet D. Miller, age 62, of Newark, DE, and North East, MD, passed away on Friday, December 7, 2012.
Janet was born in Salisbury, MD, on August 23, 1950, and was a graduate of Christiana High School. A gifted healthcare professional throughout her career, she was employed as Keystone’s health and activity provider for its Adult Autistic Center. She also worked with Easter Seals in the same capacity for many years.
In earlier years, Janet enjoyed roller skating at Christiana Skating Center (where she had once served as a floor guard). More recently, she delighted in browsing at flea markets and estate sales with her husband.
Selfless, compassionate, and kind, Janet found her greatest pleasure in caring for others. She was a gracious and strong person–the guiding star and true rock of her family–and will be sadly missed by the many people who loved her.
She is survived by her beloved husband of 20 years, Calvin C. Miller; children, Joeli Donovan of Newark, DE, Jeff Donovan of Newark, DE, Dawn Palmer of Rising Sun, MD, and Keri Young and husband Mark of St. Cloud, FL; parents, J. Allan Collins and Betty Wheatley Collins of Newark, DE; and nine grandchildren.
Visitation will be held from 6 pm to 8 pm on Monday, December 10th, at the Spicer-Mullikin Funeral Home, 121 W. Park Place, Newark, DE 19711. A funeral service will be held at 11 am on Tuesday, December 11th, at the funeral home. Interment will be held privately in Rose Bank Cemetery, Rising Sun, MD.
In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to The Shawn and Jhaney College Education Fund, c/o Spicer-Mullikin Funeral Home at the address above.
