Faith Darla Miller

Miss Faith Darla Miller passed away on August 27, 1934, at the age of 32. She was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Theodore Miller of Sandusky. Miss Miller's obituary, which is found in the 1934 OBITUARY NOTEBOOK, at the Sandusky Library, stated that Faith was a graduate of the Sandusky Business College, and had been employed by the Cleveland and Toledo Airway Corporation until the time of her four month long illness.

The funeral for Faith D. Miller was held at her parents home on Cement Avenue, near Lions Park. Burial was in Oakland Cemetery. There were many floral tributes at Faith's funeral, and there was a large group of mourners in attendance.


The monument which honors Faith Darla Miller is in the shape of a book, with a photograph of Faith at the top on the front panel. An inscription reads:

"destiny cannot save our loved ones from the grave,
fame, beauty, riches, and earthly might fade with the peace of eternal nigh
t."

The side of the monument reads "eternal night" in the location where a title is found on a book.
