She was married to Levi Miller on December 25, 1950, in Kalona, IA and they shared 72 years of marriage together. Born on November 9, 1929, in Kalona, Iowa, she was the eighth of eleven children of Solomon and Vesta Ropp. Cora was a homemaker who invested much time into gardening, sewing, cooking, and baking for her family of nine children. Quilting, crocheting, reading, and Scrabble were favorite pastimes of hers. Cora was most recently a member of Shiloh Mennonite Church where she was active in their sewing circle until failing health prevented her from doing so. She previously attended London Christian Fellowship for quite a few years until their move to Springfield, OH in 2018. She was a regular volunteer at the Country Closet Thrift Store in Plain City and Meals on Wheels in London, OH. In 2016, she and Levi were recognized for their service to the community and were inducted into the Central Ohio Senior Citizen's Hall of Fame.
