Bona A. Miller

Bona Annie Miller “Bonnie” to her many friends, 91, of Kokomo, passed away peacefully at 3:35 p.m., Friday, April 1, 2016. She was born on September 18, 1924 in New London, Indiana, to Nellie May (Doak) Roe and Gerald Arthur Roe.

She was the oldest of 11 children, six sisters and five brothers, and as the oldest, played a big part with her parents in nurturing them along. She enjoyed being the “big sister” to all of her siblings.

While in the 7th grade at Meridian School she met her future husband, Robert Lamar Miller, but he was a “yucky boy” at that time. It was as a student at Kokomo High School that Bonnie took an interest in Robert. As a bride-to-be Bonnie worked at Reliance Manufacturing to earn enough money to buy Robert a suit he could be married in. They married on November 7, 1942, and Robert soon went to the Pacific Theater as a U.S. Army soldier. After returning safely, they continued their journey together which has always included family, friends, and Christian service to the community. Originally a Quaker, Bonnie attended Beamer United Methodist Church for over 40 years and after it closed, became a devoted patron of Kokomo Zion United Methodist Church.

Bonnie regaled her grandchildren about the Roe Family’s adventure during the Great Depression when her father and his brother, Uncle Peanut, decided to take Horace Greeley’s advice and go “West” to Oregon for better opportunities. Bonnie was a young woman of ten at the time. The men built a small wooden house and fit it onto the back of a 1929 Model-A Ford truck. After driving thousands of miles on dirt roads they arrived and soon the wooden house was taken off the truck and became their home. The men went off in search of work, which included panning mountain streams for gold. After battling armies of snakes living in the mountains of western Oregon, the Roe Family wisely returned to Kokomo where Bonnie began a life of service to her family and God

Bonnie served the state of Indiana as President of the WCTU spreading the words of “family first” at state and international convocations. She was a zealous advocate and talked often about her wonderful experiences for many years. An accomplished Euchre player, Bonnie ruled the post-Thanksgiving card games played by family.

An accomplished “fast driver” Bonnie made car dealers happy trading for ever faster sports cars that she happily drove around Kokomo. She often surprised local hot-rodders with the size of the engines she always demanded for her cars as she shouted a hearty “Hey Buddy”. Her grandchildren loved riding around with her because the Sweet Shop was always within easy reach and she got the opportunity to pursue her wish from the time she was as a young girl – to be a race car driver. When not driving fast, she could not resist dancing to a snappy beat.

Bonnie was preceded in death by her husband Robert Lamar Miller, parents Nellie and Gerald Roe, five brothers (Herbert, Walter, Silas, James, and Duane Roe), one sister Sara Morris, and daughter Trudy A. Miller.

Survivors include one son, Timothy L. Miller and his wife Janie of Venice, FL; three daughters, Julie McQuinn and her husband Jack of Kokomo; Jennifer R. Poracky and her husband Paul of Ogden Dunes, IN; and Robbie Funk and her husband Bob of Cape Coral, FL; her sisters, Marjorie Colvin, Charlotte Higgins and her husband Dr. Jack Higgins, Helen Adams and her husband Rick, and Nancy Burtch;12 grandchildren, Karmel Prater, Bret L. and wife Cindy McQuinn, and Bart McQuinn, Krystal Johnson and her husband Bill, Angela Prater, Wesley and Nathan Miller, Audrea Jackson and her husband Steve Cook, Lara nee Poracky and her husband Robert Gatliff, Mark “Joey” Stockhover, Dana and Molly Poracky; 8 great-grandchildren and many nieces and nephews.
