Marcella "Marcey" G. Miller, 55, of Rolling Prairie passed away unexpectedly at 4:53 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 21, 2021, at Community Hospital, Munster.
She was born Sept. 7, 1966, in Valparaiso, Indiana, the youngest child of Harold and Martha (Breeden) Hawkins.
Over the years she held positions with various retail establishments. Marcey considered her greatest achievement in life to be her time with her family and children. She loved decorating her home and taking care of stray cats and kittens who came her way.
