A funeral service for Ki Nam “Anna” Miller, 84, of Baker was held Dec. 14, 2012 at the Baker Assembly of God Church in Baker. Interment was in the Bonnievale Cemetery in Baker. Family received friends Dec. 13 at Stevenson Funeral Home.
Anna passed away Dec. 10, 2012 at Fallon Medical Complex Long Term Care Center in Baker.
Ki Nam Miller, or as her family and friends called her “Anna”, was born May 20, 1928, in Inchon City, Korea, the daughter of Myong Sup and Kim Hong. She grew up in Inchon City where she attended school. Anna also attended school for a brief period of time in China. Anna met a U.S. serviceman by the name of Harold Fred Miller, Sr. and the two were married Apr. 1, 1953 in Inchon City. Following Harold’s tour of duty during the Korean Conflict, they along with their two sons, Harold Jr. and William, moved to Herried, S.D. where they lived on the Schmidt farm. While in Herried, three more children were born, Ann Marie, John and Diana.
At the urging of Anna’s longtime Korean friend, Bonnie Kusler, the Miller family moved to Baker in 1965. To help make ends meet, Anna did ironing, washing and mending for people. She eventually took a job as a hot lunch cook for the Baker Public Schools and retired after 24 years. This was a job she did very well and many times the recipes were from her memory as she was unable to read English. Through great perseverance, Anna was able to learn to speak English. She often very proudly would tell people that the proudest day of her life was Oct. 17, 1971. It was this day that she would become a United States citizen.
Anna was very proud of her children and grandchildren. Her greatest joy was watching the grandchildren participate in sports. In her spare time, she belonged to a homemakers club, volunteered fixing hair at the nursing home, and was involved with the senior citizen center. Her greatest love was for her family and serving her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Anna was a faithful and dedicated member of the Baker Assembly of God Church in Baker.
Anna is survived by her children, Harold (Robin) Miller of Baker, William Miller of Hyland, Wyo., Ann Marie Kendall and John Miller, both of Baker, and Diana (Barry) Adolph of Pine Haven, Wyo.; grandchildren Jennifer Miller, Angela (Ryan) Skaarvold, Derek (Gulhan) Miller, Seth (Julia) Kendall, Kayla Adolph, D.J. Miller, Aaron Kendall, Colter Adolph, Breanna Miller, and Kaley Miller; one great-grandson, Kaine Kendall.
She was preceded in death by her parents and her husband, Harold Miller, Sr.
