Ann Miller Obituary, Death – Ann Eberly-Miller, died peacefully on December 29, 2022, at the Kavanagh House, after a five-and-a-half-year fight with ovarian cancer. Her parents, Raymond and Dorothy Landgraf, gave birth to her on February 27, 1957, in Sac City, Iowa. Anne earned her bachelor’s degree in 1975 from Saint Mary’s of Storm Lake and her master’s degree in 1979 from Mercy College of Health Sciences.
On April 24, 1982, Anne married Mark Miller, the man who would become her life’s love. Their wonderful marriage was built on commitment, affection, and Mark’s recognition that he was always incorrect. All of this occurred while they were having the time of their lives with each other, their friends, and their families. Anne was a fireball of vitality and zeal. Her door was always open to visitors, and the way she entertained them made them feel special. I had never met a more gentle, modest, honest, sensitive, perceptive, understanding, and family-oriented woman.
She was the embodiment of love. She was always the first to drop everything and run to someone in trouble’s aid. One of the most lovely people I’ve ever had the honor of knowing. Jessica Lemmo and Alex Miller were blessed to have Anne as their mother since she was the finest. She was ecstatic about their accomplishments, encouraged their goals, and determined that they should never be content with their circumstances. “There’s no such thing as a perfect mother and a million different ways to be a good one,” she used to say.
She was a mother of three kids. In the Van Meter School District, Anne helped in the classroom, served as the school nurse, and was a member of the PTA. She volunteered at the Waukee Christian Service Health Clinic, taught at St. Boniface Catholic Church, and was a member of the Wildwood Valley Homeowners’ Association for many years. Mark and Anne both found great joy in their professions as marital counselors at St. Boniface, where they provided sound advice and sensible counsel to engaged couples. Her grandchildren were her universe, a bright spot in the dark times between treatments, and the fuel that kept her going for as long as she could.
Despite the fact that her time as a grandmother was brief, she gave her grandchildren a lifetime of love and wisdom that they will carry with them for the rest of their lives. Anne’s gardens mirrored her in many ways: they were beautiful, abundant, prolific, and inviting. She especially enjoyed holding pool parties at Club Miller during the hot summer months, but she also enjoyed sipping an afternoon cocktail in her one-of-a-kind, custom-built treehouse all year. Her vacations were always spent on the beach, reading a good book and sipping a refreshing drink.
