She was born January 12, 1925, in Tampa FL. She moved to Atmore in 1983 with her husband, Gordon and son, Rusty.  She was an amazing, kind and selfless woman who loved everyone in her life and would gladly do anything she could for those needing it.  She loved volunteering with various community organizations, playing bridge with her friends and anything that involved being outside enjoying nature.  She was a member of Trinity Episcopal Church in Atmore.

She is preceded in death by her parents, Fredrick J Mappin and Mary Mappin; her husbands, Richard Earl Strickland Sr. and Howard Gordon Miller Sr.; her daughters, Carol Anderson and Barbara Haw.

She is survived by her two sons, Richard Earl Strickland Jr. and his wife, Nita of Gulf Shores, AL and Howard Gordon (Rusty) Miller Jr. and his wife, Tracy of Atmore, AL; four grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.

A celebration of life will be held for her at Trinity Episcopal Church in Atmore for her close friends and family at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting that you make a donation in her memory to the church she loved, Trinity Episcopal Church, 203 S. Carney St., Atmore, AL 36502.

Johnson-Quimby Funeral Home is in charge of all arrangements.
