Eula Jean Miller passed away April 30, 2018 at Crestview Specialty Care in West Branch, Iowa, after a battle with dementia.

Eula Jean (Figgins) Miller was born July 16, 1926 in rural Kalona, the daughter of Jay and Luva (Hartsock) Figgins. On June 4, 1945 she was united in marriage to Sylvanus "Chub" Miller, Jr. in Kalona. To this union was born four sons: Von (Pam) of Iowa City, Max (Carla) of Marrero, LA., Tim (Krys) of Bonner Springs, KS. and Hal (Kathy) of Honey Creek, IA. Eula Jean was a homemaker and friend to many in Kalona. In July 1967 the family moved to Treynor, IA., so two of the boys could attend the Iowa School for the Deaf. While in Treynor, Eula Jean was a day sitter to numerous families while taking care of the family home. Eula and Sylvanus lived in Treynor until September of 2017, when they relocated to Crestview Specialty Care to be near Von and his family.

Eula Jean is survived by her husband of almost 73 years, four children, 10 grandchildren and 17 great grandchildren.

Preceding Eula Jean in death were her parents and two brothers: Jack and Ned Figgins.

My family and I have such fond memories of Eula Jean. She was the daycare provider to my girls for many years and lovingly took care of them. I am thankful she was part of our lives. Thinking of your entire family and keeping you in my prayers.

Granny, you will be missed. Eula Jean cared for our kids for many years and was "Granny" to them all. Our thoughts and prayers are with you Chub and your family.
