Suzanne "Sue" Lynda Miller

April 29, 1947 — March 22, 2023

On March 22, 2023 Suzanne Lynda Miller joined her heavenly family surrounded by loving family members.

Suzanne was born April 29, 1947 at Holy Cross Hospital in Salt Lake City. In 1950 the family moved to Burley, Idaho when her dad, Lalovi Butler, was appointed superintendent of the newly constructed Utoco pipeline and tank farm in Burley. What was expected to be a tenure of a few years became a lifetime when Suzy and Lalovi discovered the joys of fly fishing and other outdoor adventures, and the family enjoyed the small-town lifestyle.

Suzanne graduated from Burley High School in 1965 then continued her education at Idaho State University, Towson State College, and University of Utah, graduating from ISU in 1974 with a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education and a Master’s degree in Special Education as well as an Administration Certificate. She taught for over 35 years, mostly in 6th grade.

Following her retirement Sue became a Volunteer Ombudsman for the Elderly, visiting Assisted Living Centers and Nursing Homes throughout SE Idaho advocating tirelessly for the needs of the elderly residents. She thought of this as one of her proudest achievements.

On August 13, 1994 she married Roy Miller and they spent the next years traveling throughout the United States and Europe, attending musical events, skiing, gardening and enjoying a loving companionship. Suzy was an accomplished skier, both Nordic and Alpine, and the two of them enjoyed some 30 ski areas in the U.S., Canada and Europe.

Suzanne is survived by her brother, Mike (Trenna) Butler of Burley, her sister, Sandra Grindrod of Lacey, WA, nieces, Kim Grindrod, and Amanda (Mark) Crump, nephews, Eric and Kevin Grindrod, and Jody (Cara) Butler, and numerous great nieces and nephews.

Sue’s niece, Carla Riddle preceded her in death.

Private family services will be held on Saturday, April 22, 2023. The family is then hosting a public Celebration of Life at Juniper Hills Country Club at 3:30 p.m.

In lieu of flowers, Sue would appreciate a donation to the Pocatello Animal Shelter, Bannock Humane Society, of your favorite charity.

Memories and condolences may be shard with the family under the Tribute Wall tab above.
