Joanne Marilyn Miller

July 29, 1946 — August 21, 2023


Always full of surprises, Joanne Marilyn Miller passed away suddenly on August 21, 2023. She was born on July 29, 1946, in Gary, MN to Raymond John Neuhalfen and Edny Maureen Williamson.

She is preceded in death by her parents; her husband of 33 years, Lawrence “Crunch” Miller, Sr.; and her daughter, Darci Jo Thorpe.

Joanne is survived by her two sons, Darin Thorpe of Thief River Falls, MN and Lawrence Miller Jr. (Megan) of Madison, AL; her stepchildren Duane Miller (Michelle) of Appleton, WI, Traci Bohn (Kelly) of New London, WI, Michelle Miller (Lisa) of Sun Prairie, WI, Kevin Miller (Susie) of La Crescent, MN, and Brenda Keech (Ron) of Wichita, KS; her sister Carol Thorpe (Ilton “Junior”) of Mahnomen, MN; her brother Raymond Neuhalfen (Linda) of Detroit Lakes, MN; 13 grandchildren; 1 great-grandchild; and 1 black miniature dachshund, Abigail. Also left to cherish her memory are many cousins, nieces, nephews, friends, and partners in crime.

A Celebration of Life will be held with family “Up North” at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to March of Dimes, National Breast Cancer Foundation, or the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

Most mothers leave behind a box full of recipes…  Joanne left a box full of cut-out comic strips and jokes. So, in her memory, we leave you with this gem we found:

Life’s journey should not be about arriving 

at your grave in a well-preserved body, 

but sliding in, full bore, 

totally worn out and shouting
