Theodora “Teddy” Hershner Miller

June 26, 1945 ‒ February 20, 2021

Palm Harbor, Florida
Formerly of Galion, Ohio

Theodora “Teddy” Hershner Miller, age 75, died Saturday, February 20, 2021 at her home in Palm Harbor, Florida surrounded by family.

Teddy was born on June 26, 1945 in Galion, Ohio to the late Theodore C. and Beulah (Eckleberry) Pilliod.  She attended Galion High School graduating in 1963.  After high school, Teddy worked as a hairdresser before going back to school earning an Associate’s Degree in Respiratory Therapy.  Teddy worked for Bucyrus Hospital and BayCare Health Systems in Clearwater, Florida as a Respiratory Therapist before retiring.

Teddy married Timothy I. Miller on January 15, 1998.  Together the two spent summers on Lake Erie at The Y-Condo.  Teddy loved to spend time on the water fishing for walleye and perch.  Not being a fan of the cold, Teddy and Tim spent many winters in Florida where they enjoyed golfing and attending neighborhood functions.

In Teddy’s free time, she could often be found spending time with people in need, working on jigsaw puzzles, playing Cribbage and cards with the neighbors.  As a woman of faith, Teddy attended St. Joseph Catholic Church in Galion and St. Luke Catholic Church in Palm Harbor.

Teddy will be missed by her husband, Timothy Miller of Palm Harbor; son Sean (Jennifer) Hershner of Suffolk, VA; daughter, Angela Hershner of Crestline, OH; stepchildren, Andy (Shelly) Miller and Beth (Derek) Strickland; grand-children, Madisyn, Jacob, Ava, Emily, Miller, Megan, Andrea, Brayden, Connor and Walker; sister, Susanne (Carl) Booth of Port Aransas, TX and numerous nieces and nephews.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at a later date at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Galion.
