Pete Miller Funeral Set Friday Afternoon

Funeral services for Pete Miller will be conducted Friday, December 8, at 2 p.m. from the Philadelphia Congregational church.

Miller passed away Wednesday evening at Adams County Memorial hospital after suffering declining health during the past four years.

He was born the son of Alexander and Anna Hartung Miller May 4, 1902, in Kolb, Russia. The family came to the United States in 1908 and settled at Tacoma. They moved to Ritzville in 1912 and farmed northwest of town. He spent most of his life on the family farm, taking over active management from his father in 1928. Pete Miller was united in marriage to Violet Miller of Lind June 22, 1930. He and his wife moved to Ritzville and semi-retired in 1954.

Mrs. Miller survives at the home. Two children, John of Ritzville, and Marilyn (Mrs. Robert) McDowall of Deer Park, also survive. The Millers presented the deceased with four grandchildren - Jonna, Denise, Colleen and Michael, and the McDowalls have two children, Robert and Linda.

Three sisters survive. They are Mrs. Anna Miller, Mrs. James (Mary) Webb and Mrs. Emma LaBelle, all of Ritzville. A brother, Henry Miller, survives at Sunnyside.

Miller was a former Adams county commissioner and was prominently associated with other organizations in the community. He served five years on the draft board and earlier this year received his official retirement with a Presidential citation and pin. He was a member of Philadelphia Congregational church, Ritzvlle Lodge No. 101 F&AM, El Katif shrine, Eastern Star, IOOF Rebekahs, served as an original supervisor of the soil and water conservation district, and on the Adams County ASC committee.
