Velma R. Miller, 83, formerly of Bountiful, Utah, passed away peacefully Thursday May 9, 2019 at her residence in Laurel, Montana. She was born December 22, 1935 in Bay Village, Arkansas.

Velma grew up on her parent's farm in Marvel, Arkansas picking cotton and working in the fields. She went on and joined the military, and was in the Women's Army Corps (WAC). After her military service, she went on to attend  LDS Business College in Salt Lake City, Utah on the GI grant.  She met Robert Miller and was married in 1955 in Great Falls, Montana. Velma had many different professions, which include working as a guard in the women's federal prison, ICU ward clerk, and medical assistant in an internal medicine practice.
