Margaret Miller

December 15, 1933 — December 26, 2023

Margaret Ann “Peggy” Miller 1933-2023  

Peggy passed peacefully on December 26, 2023, surrounded  by her  loving children and 1 grandchild cheering her onward to meet her Savior, Jesus.

Peggy was born in Louisville, Kentucky December 15, 1933, along with twin sister, Betty, to their beloved parents Otis and Nancy Meurer. The surprise birth of the twin sisters during the Great Depression disappointed her brother Bob who said, “There goes my bicycle for Christmas.” Peggy was raised in the Highlands of Louisville, Kentucky and attended Atherton High School.

Peggy met the love of her life Ralph K. Miller in Louisville in 1959. They married in 1960 and moved to his farm outside of Hardinsburg, Kentucky. Peggy, the city girl, learned to be a farm wife. She often cooked lunch for those working on the farm during the various growing seasons.  They were married until Ralph passed in 1988. Peggy’s greatest wish in life was to be a mother. Together, Peggy and Ralph raised 5 spirited children: Lee Ann (Bill) Brown, Ruth (Tim) Pike, Mary Beth, Judy, and Silas. Peggy moved to Bowling Green, Kentucky in 1993.

Peggy was the treasured Granny to Madison Steff, Jordan Steff (Bryant) Kirby, and Logan Steff, Bailey Brown (Chase) Gulley and Christian Brown, and Courtney Miller (Adam) Myatt. Upon hearing the pregnancy announcement of her first great, grandchild she requested that she just be called “Great.” She loved and enjoyed her great, grandchild Evan, Ally, and Alex Kirby and Maggie Myatt.

Peggy was an active member and volunteer first at New Bethel Baptist Church, Hardinsburg, Kentucky and later up until her death at Rich Pond Baptist Church outside of Bowling Green. Peggy enjoyed bowling, ceramics, and gardening around her patio. She discouraged anyone (especially her children) from calling to talk to her during Jeopardy or Wheel of Fortune.

Peggy was preceded in death by her parents Otis and Nancy Meurer, her brothers James “Jim” (Jane) Meurer, Robert “Bob” (Mary) Meurer, her beloved twin sister Betty (Rick) Dailey, husband Ralph, and beloved daughter Mary Beth.

She loved her husband, children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, nieces, nephews, a multitude of friends, neighbors, and church families as well. In the last hours of her life, she told her children and grandchildren the most important thing they could do in life is to love people. She lived this advice.

Peggy’s celebration of life will begin with a visitation Friday, December 29, 9-11 am followed by a memorial service at 11 am all held at Rich Pond Baptist Church outside of Bowling Green, Kentucky. Expressions of sympathy are not expected but may take the form of donations to Hospice of Southern Kentucky or Rich Pond Baptist Church in memory of Peggy Miller.
