Text size

Joyce L. (Dicken) Miller, 77, of Chaneysville, Pa., passed away on Saturday,
Sept. 9, 2017, as a result of a car accident.
She was born on May 18, 1940, in Cumberland, Md., a daughter of the late
Wilbur and Vula Dicken.
She is survived by son, Greg Miller, married to Darla; grandchildren,
Jennifer Dziuk and husband, Brian Rinker, and Jamie, Ryan and Justin Miller;
great-grandchildren, Kolden Dziuk and Ava Bishop; step-grandchildren, Cody and
Dakota Glessner; sisters, Martha and Doris, and brother, Tommy.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Earl Miller, and a daughter,
Rhonda.
Joyce attended Everett School where she met an amazing boy named Earl.
They were married for 60 years. Because they were in the Air Force, they
lived in various places all over the world and continued to travel after
they retired.
She had so many friends and neighbors who blessed her life, and we're
grateful to all of you who looked out for her, especially Gloria and Randy
Johnson.
Joyce was an active member of the Chaneysville Fire Hall for 40 years
and a member of the Ladies Auxiliary. She loved getting together with her
car club, camping with family and friends, and was an awesome cook.
Her favorite thing was family. She begged us to visit and never seemed
to get enough. While we were eating at one gathering, she'd start talking
about what we were going to eat at the next!
She was kind, thoughtful, loving, and treated us like we were her
treasures. We'll miss her laugh and hearing her voice, but know she'll be as
close as she's allowed to be. Behind the clouds, the sun is still shining,
and we were all blessed by the light she gave to our lives.
Funeral service will be held on Wednesday, Sept. 13, 2017, at 11 a.m. in the
Chapel at Akers Funeral Home.
