Sylvia was born Aug. 4, 1942, in Hankinson, N.D., to Norman and Winifred Medenwaldt. The second oldest of 12, she grew up on a family farm near Fox Home, Minn., graduating from Campbell High School in 1960.
She met and married Marvin Miller, and with him had two beautiful children, Marvin and Dawn. The family moved to Manhattan in 1973, and after their divorce in 1974, Sylvia resided in various homes in the Gallatin Valley before settling in Bozeman in 1986.
