Hazel was born on March 13, 1929 in Many, LA. She left this earth to be with the Lord on July 19, 2020 at Many Healthcare North. She grew up in Many, LA where she attended Many High School. She was a devoted, charter member of Trinity Baptist Church of Many, LA, where she led and served faithfully for over 50 years. She was also a past member of the Eastern Star.
Hazel was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother. She lived 91 years to the fullest. She enjoyed spending time and cooking for her family and friends. Her travels brought her to the Holy Land, Athens, Greece, and Hawaii to name a few. Her life was full of adventures including mission trips within the states.
Hazel loved her family more than life, and she had a gift of making her friends feel like family. She was a beautiful example of a fine Christian lady. Her life could be compared to the description of the virtuous woman in Proverbs 31. A Godly woman, her worth far above rubies. A Homemaker, always watching over her home and family. A wise woman of strength. Her children rise up and call her blessed.
She was preceded in death by her loving husband, Sgt. C.J. Miller, Jr., her parents, Henry and Molly Wedgeworth and siblings, three brothers and five sisters.
She is survived by her daughter Frances Miller Hodge and husband Delmar of Zwolle, LA, two sons, Joey Miller and wife Janet of Baton Rouge, LA and Johnny Miller and wife Charlotte of Ft. Jesup, LA, eight grandchildren, fourteen great- grandchildren, and one great-great grandchild on the way.
Honored to serve as pallbearers are Gary Miller, Jason Miller, Pat Miller, Troy Miller, Anthony Pleasant and Tony Sattler.
The family extends sincere gratitude to the staff at Many Healthcare North and Superior Hospice.
