Sept. 1, 1946 – April 30, 2012
Longtime Big Horn County/Basin, Wyoming resident Bonnie Lee Miller, age 65, passed away at her home in Basin, Wyoming, on Monday, April 30, 2012.
Bonnie was born Sept. 1, 1946, at Greybull, Wyoming to Albert Ira and Wilma May (Collingwood) Good. She was born and raised in the Big Horn Basin. She received her schooling in Greybull and graduated from Greybull High School in 1964.
Bonnie married Douglas Albert Miller on Jan. 14, 1965, in Cody, Wyoming.
After her marriage to Doug, her early interests laid with her children and the family farm. Many days were filled with long, hard work tending to the crops, which she took great pride in. After many years of tending the family farm, she ventured into other work in town at various places that included Probst Western Store, Country Wide Auction, Greybull Livestock Auction, and her latest employment at Overland Express. She enjoyed visiting with the many customers that she came into contact with on a daily basis.
In those times when she was able to slow down, she enjoyed the needlepoint pictures that she made for her family. Her other interests that brought her joy were painting ornaments for her yard, building wind chimes, growing her roses, collecting toy tractors, and her dog, Gidget. Her greatest joys involved time spent with her grandchildren.
Bonnie is preceded in death by her mother, Wilma May Good.
Bonnie is survived by her husband, Douglas Albert Miller of Basin, Wyoming; her father, Albert Good of Greybull, Wyoming; her sons, Jay L. Miller (Tammy) and Doug Miller (Betty Runyan), all of Basin, Wyoming; her daughter, Honey Ann Miller of Greybull, Wyoming; her brothers, Leonard Good and Larry Good, both of Greybull, Wyoming; Jerry Good of Clyde Park, Montana and Tony Good of Gillette, Wyoming; her sisters, Donna Dalin and Cheryl Dalin, both of Greybull, Wyoming; five grandchildren, Bobbi Miller, JL Miller and Brittni Miller, all of Basin, Wyoming; Jacob Miller of Greybull, Wyoming, and Chantel Schmidt of Chadron, Nebraska; and one great-grandchild, Braxton Miller of Basin, Wyoming.
