Betty Jean Miller

May 9, 1929 — January 17, 2021

Betty Jean Miller, 91, passed away on January 17, 2021 in Aurora, Colorado after living in La Junta for many years. She was born in Garden City, Kansas on May 9, 1929 to Benjamin and Ethel Goddard. She was the second youngest of eight children.

She met and fell in love with Otto Miller when she was 16. They were married 2 weeks later. They were married up until he passed away in 1999. They had three children, Roger (Litsa) Miller of Aurora, Colorado; Deann (Rod) Ormsbee of Fort Morgan, Colorado and Janice (Randy) Musgrave of Fort Morgan, Colorado; seven grandchildren and ten great-grandchildren.

Betty once worked at Otero Jr. College and later at The Opera House Pharmacy for years. She loved to crochet, especially with thread, making many beautiful doilies and tablecloths. She was a wonderful cook and loved to bake (made the best peanut cake ever!). One of her favorite things to do was go to Laughlin, NV to gamble.

Betty was preceded in death by her parents, all her siblings, and her husband of 52 years.

As per Betty’s request cremation has taken place and there will be no services. She will be inurned at the Fort Lyon National Cemetery, next to her husband.

Online condolences may be made at Peacock-Larsen Funeral Home & Arkansas Valley Crematory is in charge of arrangements.
