Obituary of Connie Louise Miller

Connie L. Miller passed away Monday March 8, 2021 at Mercy Hospital in Janesville.

She was born on August 3, 1961 in Fort Atkinson, Wisconsin to Clifford and Eileen (Stelse) Miller.  Connie loved to cook, and her secret ingredient was love.  She shared this talent with family and friends and those she served throughout her career most notably at The Glen Assisted Living.  She was a natural caregiver which translated into her daily life.  She was compassionate and caring, she loved her co-workers and the residents she cared for.  Connie enjoyed a good makeover and home renovation project and was often inspired by the home-makeover shows she watched.  Connie enjoyed being outdoors and nature.  She would often find pleasure and relaxation by “taking a ride” to enjoy the beauty of the Wisconsin seasons.  Her deepest love and greatest passion were her children and grandchildren; she was a devoted mother and grandmother.  She loved unconditionally, listened and supported them as they navigated their way through young adulthood and becoming parents themselves.  In her later years, Connie was reunited with her young love, Duane Smith.  There is comfort in knowing that they are once again together and able to fully enjoy each other.

She will be deeply missed by her family, children Brooke Miller of Sun Prairie, Jonathon Jacobs of Whitewater.  Stepdaughter Ashley Bush of Virginia.  Mother Eileen Miller of Whitewater.  Grandchildren, Aaliyah Crawford, Carter Jacobs, Juliet Jacobs, Cantley Busch, Amelia Busch, Lincoln Busch.  Sisters Diane Brunette of Janesville, Donna (Wayne) Tyler of Fort Atkinson, Cindy (Rob) Channing of Whitewater, Denise Higgins of Whitewater.  She is preceded in death by her Father, her fiancé,  Duane Smith, Brother-in-laws Rex Higgins and Tom Brunette.

The family will plan a celebration of Connie’s life at a later date.
