Donna M. Miller, 77, of Peoria passed away peacefully on Monday, January 6th, 2020, at the OSF Richard L. Owens Hospice Home in Peoria.

Donna was born on January 2, 1943 in Peoria the daughter of Ronald and Cassie (Yoches) Harding.  She married, and is survived by, the love of her life, Roger Miller Sr. on October 30, 1965. Also surviving are three sons, one daughter and their spouses: Roger Jr. and Pam Miller of Washington, Chris and Joel Miller-Klunke of Dunlap, Andy and Suzanne Miller of Peoria, Ann and Jason Lambert of Baton Rouge, LA; eight grandchildren who loved their Nonnie - Sarah, Taylor, Tate, Piper, Parker, Dalton, Ian and Cassie; one great-grandson, Luke; one brother, Ron (Toine) Harding of Kingsland, TX; an enormous extended family of nieces, nephews, cousins and wonderful friends. She is preceded in death by her parents and her sister, Marianne Haines.

Donna was a graduate of The Academy of Our Lady in Peoria.  As her children grew up, she became the first face you would see at the reception desk of Bergan High School and Peoria Notre Dame until her retirement in 2000. She treated every student like her own and enjoyed bumping into them after they graduated. The feelings were mutual as everyone loved Donna.

Donna loved spending time with her family, especially Sunday night dinners, Friday nights out with her husband and their friend group, and large family Thanksgiving and Christmas Eve celebrations with the greatest family one could know. Her laugh and smile were contagious. She never knew a stranger and was loved by all.

Cremation rites have been accorded. A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, January 11th, 2020, from 2:00pm-6:00pm, at the home of Chris and Joel, 11702 N Strathmoore Ct, Dunlap IL 61525. All who knew Donna or her family are welcome.
