Yvonne Y. Miller

ASHTABULA — Yvonne Young Miller, age 85, of Columbus Ave., passed away on Sunday, Dec. 16, 2012, at the Hospice Unit of Ashtabula County Medical Center with her loving family by her side.

She was born Jan. 26, 1927, in Greenville, Pa., the daughter of Earle T. and Dorothy (Westover) Young and was an Ashtabula resident most of her life.

A 1944 graduate of Edgewood High School, she earned an Associate Degree from Wooster College. Her secretarial and administrative training led her to positions with Dr. A.A. Decato, the Village of North Kingsville as income tax clerk, Chevron with their offices along the Alaskan Pipeline, and Phoenix Combustion in Ashtabula. She also worked as a proofreader for several published books.

Yvonne was a voracious reader and avid volunteer. She served as treasurer for Habitat for Humanity, was on the founding board for the Wellness & Total  Learning Center (WTLC) – an organization whose mission is to promote the holistic wellness of the mind, body and spirit of our community members as well as volunteerism for good causes, and was active with CONTACT, the Genealogy Society, the Scottish Society, the Garage Sale Bonanza, and the Civil Rights Movement. She also had a passion for the Ashram Prison Project and the elimination of the death penalty.

She had a deep interest in universal spirituality. A gifted singer, she loved to sing and often performed with her sisters as a quartet. She was most proud  to have driven to Alaska before the ALCAN highway was paved and also had traveled to Europe and China.

Her survivors include three children, Eric Miller and Kerry (Randy) Hyppa, both of Arlington, Wash., and Valerie (Edwin) Miller-Brown of Penryn, Calif.; 10 grandchildren, Jason Peet, Gina Barnette, Shawn, Brett, Stephen and Errol Miller, Wendy, Aaron and Kathleen Troyer, and Amanda Andersen; 16 great-grandchildren; one great-great-grandchild; three sisters, Mercedes Young of Johnson City, Tenn., Evangeline Glass of Camden, Maine, and Rosalind Woodburn of Ashtabula; several beloved nieces, nephews and cousins; and many dear friends, including Luanna Hale.
