Theresa was born on Jan. 18, 1964, to Della LaDean (Babb) Miller and Victor James Miller Sr. in Parsons. They preceded her in death.
Her daily pleasures included her indulgence of all her family and friends. She lived for the children in her family and blessed them with her unconditional love and understanding. Her special gift of love and kindness will live in the hearts of all forever.
In her last days at home with her family, the saying, which she had originally started, was, “The question is, do you love me?” and her answer was “ALWAYS.” It will eternally be imprinted in the hearts and souls of her family and friends “ALWAYS.”
