Camelia Rosetta Miller, affectionately known as Cat (on account of her green eyes) was born on October 16, 1927, and made her transition to be with the Lord on August 10, 2022. She was raised by Ceetta Duvall-Morris and George Morris in Goochland County, Virginia.

She later moved to Washington, D.C. before eventually settling in New Jersey where she married Frank Miller on April 12, 1952. Together they had four children: Frank Junior, Michelle, Mark and Traci.

After moving to Montclair, New Jersey, Camelia began attending St. Peter Claver Church where she was a member for over 50 years. She worked for RCA and ADP for years as a secretary. She worked as a secretary at St. Peter Claver Church for many years as well.

Camelia was a connoisseur of self care before the phrase was coined or became trendy. She was an avid traveler and went on many cruises with friends. Her adventurous spirit and desire to see the world was truly inspiring. She also enjoyed flexing her creative muscles and took many art classes, including a number of ceramics classes that she attended with her daughter, Michelle. Camelia was also very active and enjoyed exercising in her local parks where she could power walk faster than her granddaughter Nia. Camelia enjoyed shopping, an interest she passed on to her daughter Traci. She also had a love for card parties, many of which she attended with her friends over the years.

She is survived by her two daughters, Michelle Miller and Traci Miller as well as her son, Mark Miller; her grandchildren, Nia Clark (married to Jason Clark), Imani Hamm, Ross Emad Miller, Brielle Miller, and Ryan Price.

The family wishes to thank all of those who have reached out and extended their kindness during this difficult time.
