Obituary

Herman Miller, also known as “Smiley,” was born to the late Harry “Street” Miller and Linnie Northam on December 2, 1925. He entered into eternal rest on Wednesday, September 9, 2020.

Herman was raised and educated in Accomack County, Virginia. He proudly served his country during World War II in the United States Navy.

Herman was joined in holy matrimony to Lena Mae Miller and they shared sixty-nine years together before her passing.

Herman was employed as a weighmaster at Golden Pride. He also caught chickens at Snow Hill poultry plant and was a jockey at Perdue Farms for many years. Later in life he was a custodian at Chincoteague High School until his retirement. He touched many lives at CHS. After retirement, he provided landscaping services in his community.

At an early age, he received Christ at Shiloh Baptist Church in Atlantic, Virginia and later joined Friendship United Methodist Church (now New Beginnings) in Wattsville, Virginia. He served as a Trustee, Usher, and sang on various choirs. He also took care of many duties at the church, including: landscaping, plumbing, and concrete work, for many years.

Herman was preceded in death by his wife, parents, daughter, Ada Miller; brothers, Paul, Preston, and Harry Lee Miller; and sisters, Wyester Miller and Alice Marshall.

He leaves to cherish his memory: his children, Sherrye Copes, Sylvia (Tom) Wallop, Herman G. Miller, Veronica Miller, Anthony (Tia) Miller, Quince (Sabrina) Lankford, Arnold (Teresa) Lankford, Kenneth Miller, and Troy Miller; two special granddaughters whom he had a special bond with, Denise (Maurice) Baynard and Tonya Cropper; twenty-six grandchildren; forty-seven great-grandchildren; eight great, great-grandchildren; brother, William Miller, Sr.; sister, Catherine Townsend; and a host of nieces, nephews, other relatives, and friends.

    Notes
    In the light of the evolving situation with COVID-19 virus, we are making adjustments to adapt to the current health emergency. In order to reduce the spread of the virus in our community, we are limiting the public’s access to our facility. We will continue to serve our families with the utmost dignity, as well as maintain the safety guidelines provided by the Center for Disease Control (CDC). Cooper & Humbles Funeral Co., Inc. will comply and hold all services private until further notice. We will not have any public viewings in our facility. In an effort to accommodate family and friends, we are posting photos and the funeral/graveside service video of your loved ones on their respective Book of Memory pages on our website, www.cooperandhumbles.com. This will allow you to have a lasting memory picture and attend the service virtually. We thank you for your patience and understanding during this difficult time and as soon as this matter is resolved, we will resume our normal practices.
