Renee Miller

d. March 15, 2016

Listen to a recording of the service:

Lifelong Goshen resident, Vida Renee Johnson Miller, died March 15, 2016.  She was born September 10, 1930, descended from Tennessee mountain folk and a Mormon pioneer who came west with the first company. Raised by her widowed mother in a transplanted miner’s shack, she moved through the block to a house she built and shared with Howard, the man she married in 1948—those homes being the only two she ever lived in.

Renee hosted countless family gatherings, reunions, holidays, campouts, and picnics, and her passing leaves a hole no other potato salad can ever fill. Children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren seldom left her house without carrying away a quilt or afghan crafted by her always-busy hands. Throughout her life Renee served her family, community, and church as a little league baseball scorekeeper, Cub Scout leader, Primary president, rodeo secretary, room mother, Relief Society visiting teacher, temple worker, tractor driver, and keeper of branding fires. For many years, Renee worked as housekeeper and Executive Housekeeper at Mountain View Hospital in Payson.

She is preceded in death by her father, John Blaine Johnson, and mother, Mary Lucile Stewart Finch Johnson; husband, Howard; sister Billie Horton and brother Ted Johnson; half-sisters Audra Calderwood, Winona MacDonald, and LaVern Kirk, and half-brothers Lynn Stewart Finch and Gail Finch. Renee is survived by sons Zebbie (Julie) and Rodney (Susan), daughters Pamela (Wayne) Gasser and Denise Warren, 14 grandchildren and 29 great grandchildren.

Funeral services will be held Tuesday, March 22nd at 10:00 a.m. at the Goshen LDS chapel. Friends may visit at the church from 9:00 - 9:45 a.m. the day of service and Monday evening, March 21st, from 6:00 to 8:00 pm at Brown Family Mortuary, 66 So. 300 East in Santaquin. Renee will be interred next to Howard at the Goshen cemetery.
