September 9, 1924 ~ March 23, 2023 (age 98) 98 Years Old


Mildred Anna Miller, 98, of East Hanover Township, Dauphin County passed away Thursday, March 23, 2023.


Born September 9, 1924 in Mount. Zion, Lebanon County, she was a daughter of the late Clayton and Estella (Schaeffer) Heberling.  The widow of Vernon Joseph Miller since February 2017, she was also preceded in death by her sister Geraldine Tice and brothers Raymond, Curtis, Paul, Earl and Herman Heberling.
