Marian Elnora (Paeske) Miller of Battle Creek, MI

Marian, age 97, died peacefully Thursday, December 10, 2020 after a brief illness. She is survived by daughter Lynn Miller, and daughter Jean (m. George) Wells, both of Battle Creek, and son Kurt Miller, (m. Judith) of Bay City, Michigan; four grandchildren, Todd Wells of Battle Creek, Seth Wells of Lafayette Indiana, Sara Johnson of Battle Creek, and Emily VanValkenburg of Bay City, Michigan; and six great-grandchildren, Matteus and Owen Johnson of Battle Creek, Hayden and Sawyer Haubenstricker of Bay City, and Seth (Jr.) and Ella Wells of Lafayette, Indiana. She also leaves behind beloved nephews, nieces, grand-nephews, and grand-nieces. She was preceded in death by her husband of nearly 75 years, Bert W. Miller, parents Henry Paeske and Meretta (nee Kieffer) Paeske, brother Henry (Bud) Paeske of Green Bay, Wisconsin, grandson Chad C. Wells, and great-grandson, Kieffer G. Johnson of Battle Creek.

Marian was born in Green Bay, Wisconsin and graduated from Green Bay West High School in 1941. She worked as an executive secretary and executive assistant for several companies, retiring from the former Battle Creek Health System in 1984. She counted among her greatest treasures time spent with family and friends; and listed her greatest accomplishment as a successful marriage and family.

Marian will be cremated and interred next to her husband at Fort Custer National Cemetery, Augusta, MI. A memorial service will be held at later date. In place of flowers, the family requests that donations be made in Marian's memory to Maple United Methodist Church, 342 Capital Ave NE, Battle Creek, MI 49017 or the Salvation Army, 400 Capital Ave NE, Battle Creek, MI 49017. The Farley Estes & Dowdle Funeral Home & Cremation Care, Battle Creek is assisting Marian's family.
