Miller, Helen Timmey

Monday, March 15, 2010

Helen Timney Miller died peacefully surrounded by her family and caregivers on March 13, 2010, after a long and courageous struggle with Parkinson's disease.

She was born in Lonaconing, Md., on November 17, 1925, to John and Hetta Timney. She was known to most and lovingly to her grandchildren as Timmie. She graduated from Frostburg State Teachers' College, and all of her adult life was devoted to education first, as an energetic teacher and then, as an innovative and beloved head of the lower schools of Metairie Park Country Day School in Metairie, La., Ashley Hall in Charleston, S.C., and the Wright School (now UMS-Wright) in Mobile, Al.

She spent 25 summers as the assistant director of Camp Green Cove in Tuxedo, N.C. After her retirement she moved to New Orleans, and after Hurricane Katrina she made her home on Lookout Mountain.

She was preceded in death by her sisters, Jenny Miller, Mary Cooper, and Ruth Phillips, and her brothers, John Timney, Daniel Timney, and Thomas Timney.

She is survived by her daughters, Susan Miller Howick, of Lookout Mountain, Tn., and Amy Miller Lapeyre and her husband Chuck, of New Orleans, La.; her grandchildren, Hope McCrackin Howick, Meg Howick Torrence and her husband Chas, Sara Michal Howick, Charles Christopher Lapeyre, Kathryn Timney Lapeyre, and Rebecca Buckley Lapeyre; three nieces and six nephews; and her dear brother, Harrison Warnick Timney.

The family would like to express their deepest gratitude to Arlew Lovelady and her capable staff at My House Too for their devoted and loving care of our mother and grandmother. We thank Amedisys of North Georgia, also.

In lieu of flowers, please make a contribution to your favorite school or to the Frank and Calla Bell Scholarship Foundation, P.O. Box 8, Tuxedo, N.C. 28784.

A memorial service will be held at Church of the Good Shepherd, Episcopal with time and visitation announced at a later date.

Arrangements have been entrusted to Wann Funeral Home.
