Thelma Ruth Seals Miller, 90, gained her heavenly wings on February 25, 2021, and is now resting in the arms of our savior, Jesus Christ.

 

Thelma was born in the family home on Dec. 3, 1930, in Meigs County, Tn. to George and Leta Seals. Her love for Christ was unending as she was a dedicated member of various Baptist churches with the final one being Jubilee Baptist Church of Soddy Daisy, Tn. She attended church faithfully until she no longer could physically do so.

 

“Nana” enjoyed going for long car rides, revisiting special locations that was part of her childhood; she loved her sweets and would often enjoy a frosty or milkshake during those many adventures and while she may not have room to complete a full dinner plate, there was always plenty of room for dessert!

 

Her passion was cooking and watching family enjoy those fruits of her labor, especially during the holidays.

 

She was preceded in death by many loved ones including her husband, Robert Davis Miller and daughter, Vicki Lynn Miller Woods.

 

She is survived by grandsons, Danny (Missy) Woods and Craig (Kelly) Woods, seven great-grandchildren, four great-great-grandchildren and two sisters, Betty Louise (Seals) Childs and Peggy Ann Seals and several nieces, nephews and extended family.

 

A graveside service will be held on Wednesday, March 3, at 1 p.m. at Hamilton Memorial Gardens with Brother Joe Headrick officiating.

 

All friends and family are welcome to attend the graveside service.

 

A private visitation will be held for the family prior to the graveside service.

 

Interment will be at Hamilton Memorial Gardens.

 

Arrangements are by Hamilton Funeral Home & Cremation Services, 4506 Hixson Pike, Hixson, 423 531-3975.
