C. E. Miller Dies Suddenly Friday of Heart Attack
The community was shocked last Friday [November 28, 1947] when it was announced that C. E. Miller, better known to the people of Estherville as “Tang”, had died suddenly of a heart attack. Mr. Miller had been the subject of slight attacks but he had been around of late and seemed to be in better health. He, himself, knew better for only a few days when someone else died of an attack he made the remark that he might be next.

The attack came when he was about to enter his car. He was found about ten feet from the door of the car. Medical attention said he had died at once from a severe attack.

Charles Miller was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Charles E. Miller. He was born in this city on August 12, 1899 and was educated in our schools. He was united in marriage to Helen Platt in Canton, South Dakota, September 22, 1932 and they have resided in this city since their marriage.

Tang, as all the kiddies knew him, was a great lover of children and they all loved him. He was kind and considerate to them and they appreciated him. He was well liked by all who knew him for his friendly and considerate ways.

Mr. Miller had been an employee of the Rock Island Railway for the past 28 years and was a trusted and popular employee of the company.

He is survived by his widow, five brothers and three sisters.

The funeral services were held on Monday from the Baptist Church at 1:30, the Rev. G. E. Forsell officiating. Interment was in Oak Hill cemetery. (Estherville Enterprise, Estherville, IA, December 4, 1947)
