Bonnie S. Miller, 52, of Coudersport, lost a short, but courageous battle with cancer on Thursday, May 27, 2021 at UPMC Cole surrounded by her loving family.
Born on April 7, 1969 in Coudersport, she was the daughter of Franklin (Louie) and Myrtle Baker. In October of 2000 she married the love of her life, Will Miller, who survives.
Bonnie attended the Austin Area School and graduated in 1987. In 1990 she enlisted in the United States Air Force, proudly serving her country for twenty years, earning the rank of Technical Sergeant. After spending time at three primary duty stations in Texas, Germany and Maryland, upon her retirement Bonnie and Will moved their family back to Potter County.
Even though she was retired from a full military career, Bonnie couldn’t just sit around. Using the skills she had perfected in the Air Force, she took a job working with the Behavioral Health Department of Potter County Human Services where she worked until illness made it unable for her to continue.
Bonnie enjoyed traveling and made full use of her time overseas by visiting as many medieval castles as possible throughout Europe. She also was known for loving her many animals. Her cats and dogs always knew who had the best snacks and scratches.
Left to cherish her memory with her husband are children, Erin Mae (Mat) Fryer , Claudia Alyse and Dalton Cale, and a granddaughter, Kinsley Mae Sherwood, all of Coudersport. Additionally her mother in Emporium, PA and two brothers, Franklin (Judai) Baker, Anchorage, AK and Joseph (Tammy) Baker, Ridgway, PA. Also surviving is her step-mother, Janice Baker in Keating Summit, PA and her mother-in-law, Carla Miller of Coudersport.
Bonnie was predeceased by her father and her father-in-law, William Miller.
Friends are invited to join her family for a time of remembrance at 5PM with a memorial service starting at 5:30PM on Friday June 4, 2021 at Park United Methodist Church, 15 E. Third St., Coudersport. Flowers are gratefully declined and memorials can be made to The American Cancer Society, 135 W 4th St, Emporium, PA 15834.
