Carlene A. Miller - Titusville - Carlene A. Miller, 73, departed this life Friday, February 6, 2009. She was born in Greensburg, IN, to Carl Grover Miller and Florence Opal Boyd Miller. Carlene received her degree in English from East Tennessee State University and her MA from Florida State University. From 1956 to 1960, Carlene worked as a television director and camera person at WCYB-TV in Bristol, VA. She moved to Titusville in 1960 and began a monumental career as a member of the English Department at Titusville High School. During her tenure at THS she inspired students to a greater appreciation of life through literature and writing. She truly earned respect and admiration from all who knew her. Carlene's fellow teachers were also inspired by her wisdom and consummate professionalism; on two occasions she was honored as their elected "Teacher of the Year." In her retirement she enjoyed a second career as a mystery writer, and published four successful novels with two additional works in the process of publication at the time of her death. She was an avid birdwatcher who frequented many of the fertile birding areas of Brevard County in pursuit of her birding "Life List." Carlene is survived by two nephews, Frank Neal of Ft. Wayne, IN and David Neal of Wheaton, MD, and a niece, Sherry Neal of Woodburn, IN. In addition to thousands of enlightened students scattered around the globe, Carlene leaves a legacy of many close friends and a devoted community of former students who remained in touch with their "Miss Miller" through all the years. At Carlene's request, there will be no services. Donations in her memory should be made to the or to the Hospice of St. Francis. Please sign Carlene's guest book at www.northbrevardfuneralhome.com.
