George A. Miller Died Last Friday Evening
Son of Mr. and Mrs. George Miller Who Moved to This City From Spirit Lake
It was a shock to the many friends of the Miller family to learn of the sudden death of George Jr., which occurred last Friday evening. Although he had been in poor health for nearly two months, his illness was not considered serious and his death was wholly unexpected.

He was loved and admired by all who knew him and will be greatly missed in the home circles where his first though was of others. He was a kind and loving brother and a devoted and dutiful son.

George Aloysius Miller, son of Mr. and Mrs. George Miller, was born near Montgomery, Iowa, October 25, 1899 and died in Estherville, Iowa, May 17, 1918. He resided with his parents near Spirit Lake until last fall when the family moved to this city.

Besides his parents, he leaves two brothers, Pierre and Joseph, and one sister, Kathleen, to mourn his death.

The funeral services were held this morning from the Catholic church, Father Murtagh officiating. Burial was made in the Catholic cemetery. The bereaved family have the sympathy of the entire community in their bereavement. (Estherville Democrat, Estherville, IA, May 22, 1918)
