Betty Caroline Cashion Miller, 74, died March 13, 2007 at Spring Hill Manor Convalescent Hospital after a lengthy illness.

Born October 10, 1932 in Ansted, WVa, she was the daughter of John and Margot Cashion. Betty was raised in West Virginia and in 1960, she and her husband and sons moved to California. She and her family were long-time residents of West Covina and later Nipomo, California. Betty and Jim moved to Grass Valley in 2003 to retire at Eskaton Village.

Betty was most proud of her four sons and her grandchildren. They always came first in her life and her heart. She loved conversation and took time to get to know people wherever she went. She became a devoted friend to people everywhere. Betty loved animals and always stopped to pet a dog or cat when one was near. She will be sorely missed by all of her family and friends.

Betty was valedictorian of her high school class and after raising her four sons, completed college at age 55 with a degree in communications. Later in life Betty developed a passion for doll making. Her dolls and her doll-making class in Nipomo were a source of inspiration and pleasure.

Surviving are her husband Jim, sons Mark, Tom, Jim, and John (JD); daughters-in-law, Susan, Lynda, and Erin; nine grandchildren Erik Miller-Klein, Jennifer Stevens, Joshua Miller, Curtis Miller, Margo Miller, Kyle Miller, Jimmy Miller, Jillian VanCura, and Andrew VanCura; great-grandson Ethan Miller; and brother John Cashion.

A memorial service will be held in Holy Trinity Episcopal Church, Nevada City, CA, at 11:00 am on March 31, 2007, where Betty was a member. The Reverend Christopher Seal will officiate.

The family suggests that memorial donations may be made to:

Hospice of the Foothills, 12399 Nevada City Hwy, Grass Valley,
