As part of the Sunday's Obituary genea-blogger meme, I am writing about my Great-Grandma Ruby Merle (Dyer) Miller. I am posting two different obituaries for her today because the each have a bit of different information and I feel that together they make a more complete obituary. I have transcribed them here in hopes that someone may stumble upon a name or location in a search someday (a girl can dream, right?). I am not aware from which papers these came from, but the originals are the possession of my maternal G-Ma.
Miller, Ruby M.
