Carolyn Lillian Miller

April 1, 2020


Carolyn Lillian Miller, age 79, of Mount Vernon, passed away April 1, 2020. She was born October 6, 1940 in Sunbury, PA to Edward J. McCormick and Lillian C. (Deppen) McCormick.

Carolyn was a devoted mother and grandmother who loved children, animals, and fun. She worked as an administrative assistant for the rectory at St. Vincent De Paul Catholic Church in the 1980s. She went on to become a medical transcriptionist for Knox Community Hospital until her retirement in the late 2000s. She was active in the St. Vincent De Paul Community, singing in the choir and in various other roles as a layperson in service of the church. She was an active member of the Red Hats Society, and she enjoyed playing cards and shopping with her many friends. She was always quick witted, playful, and she loved a little bit of mischief. Carolyn committed the last decades of her life to helping care for her beloved grandchildren. She loved her home, her community, her family, and her cats, Lily, Willy, Cali, and Tom Bruiser.

She is survived by her sister, Joanne Blaber, one daughter Glenda (Jeffrey) Stump of Fredericktown, two sons Jeffrey (Ann) Miller of Fredericktown and Thomas (Amy) Miller of Santa Fe, NM; grandchildren: Tammie (Todd) Stephens, Bethany Stump-Spence, Timothy (Breah) Stump, Coleman Miller, Zoey Miller, Greely Miller, Blaise Miller, Connor Fisher, Wyatt Fisher; great-grandchildren: Brooklyn Spence, MJ Reed, Carver Stephens, Rylie Stephens, and Bralynn Stephens; nieces and nephews: Patrick McCormick, Erin Luciano, and Michelle Beiger-DePrima.

Besides her parents, she was preceded in death by her sister Eileen (Peter) Beiger, grandson Matthew Stump, and nephew Michael McCormick.

A Mass will take place at St. Vincent De Paul Catholic Church at a future date to be determined followed by a burial in Calvary Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, please make donations in Carolyn’s name to the American Brain Tumor Association or Knox County Humane Society.
