Miller, Norma E.

August 26, 1928 — May 15, 2020

Norma Elizabeth (House) Miller, 91, joined her husband Bud in their eternal home on May 15, 2020. She passed peacefully with her sons at her side.

Norma was born August 26, 1928 in Moberly, MO, one of five children of Newton Allne “Al” and Grace Lee (Horn) House. She graduated from Northeast High School in 1945. Norma spent most of her life residing in the northeast and east side areas of Kansas City before moving to Independence in 1993.

Norma devoted fifty-plus years helping other people, especially children. As a mother she volunteered in her sons’ school activities, including serving as PTA President, and continued working 32 years as a school secretary for the Kansas City School District and 10 years as a Before and After School Coordinator for LINC in Kansas City and Independence. She retired at the age of 82.

Along with her parents, Norma was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Frank C. “Bud” Miller, Jr., and three brothers, Sam House, Glenn House and Wayne House. She was the proud mother of two sons, Monte Miller, and his wife Leda, of Cincinnati, OH and Mike Miller of Independence, MO; grandmother of Melanie Miller, Matthew Miller, Melinda Hofmeister and her husband John, Anthony Miller and Tim Miller and his wife Kim; and great grandmother of Charlie Miller and William Hofmeister. She also leaves one brother, Dale House of Raytown, MO; as well as numerous nieces, nephews, other family members, friends, and students she served for five decades.

A graveside service of celebration, including some of the music that sustained Norma’s Christian life, will be held at 1:00 pm on Thursday, May 21, at Brooking Cemetery, 10004 East 53rd Street, Raytown, MO. Following the service, she will be laid to rest next to Bud.   Memorial contributions honoring Norma are suggested to the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America (alzfdn.org).

Mrs. Miller will always be fondly remembered for the kindness shown and support she gave to our family when our children attended West Rock Creek. Truly an Angel on earth!

Grandma Miller, as I knew her, was a sweet and kind soul. She was always so fun to be around. I remember her visits to Cincinnati and the good times we’d have doing anything! She will always live in my heart...until we meet again; you will be missed Grandma Miller, and you are loved!

Wonderful lady and neighbor!

I am sorry to hear about your mothers passing. The Lord blessed her with a long life and now she starts a new journey. I lived on the next block over and don’t believe that I ever met Norma but I know she raised great children. They played tennis with Monte for two years at East High and thought highly of him.

My deepest condolences are sent to Mrs. Norma’s family. She was one of the sweetest souls I’ve ever met, she truly touched my heart and I will remember her and think of her often for the rest of my days. I am a former employee of Villages of Jackson Creek, I worked in the dietary dept. It was my honor and privilege to be a part of Normas life and help take care of her. She was such a spit-fire! Thank you for sharing her with us. I pray God gives you comfort and peace at this time.
