COLUMBUS: Amelia Beatrice "Mimi" Prillerman, 89, went home to be with her Lord, on Monday, June 6, 2016 after a brief hospitalization at Mount Carmel East. Amelia was born to Delbert Prillerman and Amelia Cook on August 22, 1926 in Institute, West Virginia.

She was 15 when she graduated from West High School in 1942. Amelia joined the Cadet Nurses Corps. In 1944 and graduated as a Registered Nurse in 1947. She received her B. S. N from Ohio University in 1978 and retired from the Veteran's Administration Hospital, Chillicothe, Ohio in 1988.

Amelia was known for her voice. In addition to singing in church choirs, she also sang with Gospel Meets Symphony and the Paul Laurence Dunbar Choir. When she wasn't singing, she enjoyed traveling, ushering at the Ohio, Palace, and Southern theaters, and collecting dolls. She was an AKC registered breeder of Miniature Dachshunds. She served on several civic boards, and was a long time member of the Ross County NAACP in Chillicothe, Ohio.

She will be fondly remembered as "The Card Lady" because she loved to send cards to family, friends, and church members for birthdays, holidays, and other special occasions.
