May 10, 1920 - March 12, 2017
Pauline (Rau) Miller passed away on March 12, 2017 after a brave and graceful struggle with colon cancer. She was born in American Falls, Idaho on May 10, 1920 to German Immigrants, Fredrick and Maria Rau. When she was five years old the family moved to Nampa, where she has since resided.
She graduated from Nampa High School in 1938. She married Guy Leroy Miller on April 16, 1941 and they shared love and family until his death in 1991. They lived on a military base on the East Coast for three years during World War II where her husband was serving. During this time their daughter was born. After the war, they returned to Nampa, resumed their lives, and added two sons to the family.
After raising her children, she worked for the Nampa School District until her retirement. She was a member of the Zion Lutheran Church and was proud of 92 years of membership.
She was preceded in death by her husband Guy Leroy Miller, her two sons, Donald L. and Wesley J. Miller, her parents, brothers Fred, Jacob, and Dave Rau, and sisters, Amelia Brockus and Anna Lewis.

She was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother and dedicated her life to loving her family. She led by example, and instilled the virtues of faith, hard work, loyalty, perseverance and unconditional love, her quick wit and sense of humor provided strength to us all.
