Beverly A. (Buffy) Miller, 81 , of Sparta passed away peacefully on January14, 2013 at the Morrow Memorial Home, Sparta. She was born on January 12, 1932 in La Crosse, WI to Benjamin and Lancy Kulas. She attended St. James grade school in La Crosse and graduated from La Crosse Aquinas High School in 1950.

Her places of employment in La Crosse were Gateway Products, Dahl Ford Motors, La Crosse Footwear, and Northern Engraving. In Sparta she worked at Northern Engraving, Fort McCoy, J & D Restaurant (Bev's Lounge) as manager, Theather Night Club-manager, Prudential Insurance, and the Foxxy Shopper.

One of her all time favorite things to do in the good ole days was spending time at the brother Jerry's boat house with family & friends, especially the fishing.

Over the years, she also dearly treasured her time playing cards and sharing old-time memories with her close high school friends, who they called themselves "The Pono's". She also loved watching "The Packers" faithfully. (She never missed a game)

She truly enjoyed and loved spending time with her 2 grandchildren Jesse and Jaimie. She loved them both dearly.

Bev also really liked the good times she had with her daughter Shari and her group of friends, and over the past few years, she visited Wilton, WI on occasion to enjoy good times with her son Mike and his special friend Janis, and her family.

One of her favorite annual events was celebrating her birthday with her "Foxxy Shopper" gang of friends who would surprise her with something new every year.

Also, one of her great and lasting memories is Sparta was hanging out at The Foxhole Pub with all of her close and best friends…especially Leenie, Gail, Laurie, Ralph, and Martha (God rest her soul).

And the one memory that was truly dear to her heart was how Christmas Eve was spent over the past few years. The night would start with a ride thru town with son Mike to look at the christmas lights and decorations, and then spend the rest of the evening with special friends Jo, Nancy, Terry, and Mac (God rest his soul).

Towards the end, she made many special friends with Western Wisconsin Cares, Franciscan Skemp Healthcare, and with Hospice, who all treated her with tender loving care! And the family would especially like to thank the Morrow Home for all of the wonderful care they provided her over the past few years.

Bev was a very loving mother, grandmother, and special friend to many people!

She will be dearly missed….and may God Bless Her!
