Nancy A. (Schmitt) Miller, 61, passed away on Sunday, July 26, 2020, at Lutheran Hospital. She was born on January 11, 1959, the daughter of the late Hubert P. Schmitt Jr. and Patricia J. (Vachon) Schmitt. On August 13, 2007, she married Lincoln D. Miller.

She was a lifelong parishioner of St. Mary of the Assumption Catholic Church and was a member of the Women of St. Mary. For 33 years she served on the Callithumpian Committee.

Nancy had great compassion for the elderly and worked in home health care for over 35 years. She was the former owner of Tropical Tan & Tone.

She loved animals and found enjoyment in motorcycling, decorating their home, shopping, and fitness. Her peaceful place was the beach and being next to the ocean. She was a people person and like a true Schmitt never knew a stranger and loved making friends.

Nancy is survived by her husband, Lincoln Miller of Decatur; a sister-in-law, Dianne Burroghs of Decatur; a niece, Yvonne (Chris) Cook of Ft. Wayne; a nephew, Bryant Burroghs of Decatur; 2 great nephews, Jonathon and Joey; her four-legged loves, her yorkies, Oscar and Sophie Grace. She was preceded in death by her brother, John Burroghs.
