Kelley G. Miller

March 08, 1960 ‒ May 04, 2020

Westerville, Ohio

Kelley G. (Levin) Miller, age 60, passed away peacefully at home surrounded by her loving family after a hard-fought battle with breast cancer.

Kelley was born in Rochester, New York where she spent her childhood and teenage years sharing a close bond with lifetime friends, the McLane family. Kelley met the love of her life, Eric, and they were blessed with two beautiful daughters- Nichole and Erica. As Kelley and Eric began to raise their young family, they relocated to his hometown Westerville, where they would raise their daughters surrounded closely by their family.

Kelley was always an entertainer- the quintessential hostess always ensuring there was plenty of food, treats, and goody bags to go around. She hosted countless holiday gatherings, card parties and catered graduation parties for those close to her. She never denied an extra guest or seat at the table. Kelley loved to sit and hear the laughter of her daughters and nieces filling her home.

Kelley’s favorite role in life though was the one where her title was Nana. Blessed first with the twins- Addy and Ava, Nana enjoyed every moment spent watching them grow from craft time and school pickups to dance recitals and trips apple picking. When the littlest of the bunch, Ainsley, joined- Nana’s world turned upside down in the best of ways. She was Nana’s popsicle pal and best friend. Nana always had a story to share of Ainsley’s latest antics.

Preceded in death by her parents, Eunice and Hyman Levin. Survived by her adoring husband, Eric; daughters, Nichole (Mitch) Thompson and Erica (Nathaniel) Kuhn; cherished granddaughters, Addison, Ava and Ainsley Thompson; mother-in-law, Wilma (Tony) Dicenzo; father-in-law, Roger Miller; sister-in-law, Janet (Daniel) O’Brien; brother-in-law, Brian Miller; and nieces, Christina and Jessica Miller, Fallon, Margaret and Gaetan O’Brien; and many friends whom she welcomed into her heart as family.

Eric, Nichole, and Erica appreciate the overwhelming support and love shown for Nana throughout her fight. Her years were cut short, but the life she fit into those years was full because of the family and friends who filled them.

Due to the current restrictions, the family will be delaying services until a Celebration of Life can be held. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to the Bing Cancer Center at Riverside Hospital in her memory.

The DeVore-Snyder Funeral Home of Sunbury is honored to serve the Miller family.  Please share a memory or condolence with the family on this website.

  • Erica and Family,

    My heart was saddened today to hear of the loss of Kelley.
    I remember when the café started at Progressive Medical and she was so excited to be a part of it. Her chicken salad was the best!!! When the twins came along she was over the moon with excitement about it.

    My thoughts are with all of you at this most difficult time and may you find comfort that she is with the Lord know and not suffering.

    Sincerely,
    Kathy Nisky

  • Dear Kelley’s family,
    I met Kelley when she was in 6th grade and had just moved to Pittsford, NY. She was so fun and full of life…we always had so much fun, especially when her “partner in crime,” David McLane, was with us. We lost contact after graduation…we saw her at least once after, but she’ll always have a place in my heart. You were all blessed to have her in your lives.

  • I’m so sorry for your loss. I have wonderful memories of Kelly. She was a great sister in law and always made me feel part of the family. I enjoyed all the family get togethers and going to the cabin at Lake Erie. She was so outgoing and a loving wife, mother, aunt, grandma and friend. Sending prayers and love to the family.
