Obituary for Esther Elsie Miller

Esther Elsie (nee Kuecken) Miller passed away peacefully at Songbird Pond in Plymouth on Thursday, September 19, 2019. She was a lifelong resident of Beaver Dam, Wisconsin, until 12 years ago when she moved to Plymouth to be near her daughter and grandchildren. She was born in Fountain Prairie, Wisconsin, on August 25, 1918.

She was a 1936 graduate of Beaver Damn High School. Before marriage, Esther’s favorite job was working at the Juneau County Courthouse where she worked for the County Agent plotting the acreage for each farmer in the county. On September 23, 1939, she married Norbert Leo Miller of Beaver Dam, and together they raised their children, Barbara and Kenneth. She then went to work at Newton-Wenz department store in Beaver Dam until retirement. Her favorite hobby was playing cards, and she didn’t stop until she was 98.

Her survivors are her children: Barbara McKnight and children Brian (Wendy) McKnight, Jenna McKnight, Benjamin (friend Jen) McKnight, and Jill (Ben) Kaiser; Kenneth (Ione) Miller and children Jeffrey (friend Melissa) Miller, Michael (Sarah) Miller, Marcy (Joshua) Terry and Andrew Miller. Great grandchildren are: Hunter McKnight, Nilah McKnight, Adalind Kaiser, Payten and Devin Miller, Allie and Luke Miller, Collin and Elizabeth Terry. Her sister, Edna Heinemeier, also survives her as do many nieces and nephews.

Preceding Esther in death were her parents, Ernest and Elsie Kuecken, her husband Norbert, her son-in-law James KcKnight, her brother Elmer Kuecken and all of the Miller family in-laws.

Funeral services will be held at St. Stephen’s Lutheran Church in Beaver Dam at 12:00 PM on Friday, September 27, 2019. Pastor Paul Stratman, Pastor of the Church, will officiate.
