Jeanette was born on July 12, 1932, in Meire Grove to the late Leo and Thecla (Meyer) Caspers. She married Norbert Miller on May 25, 1955, at St. John’s Catholic Church in Meire Grove. They lived south of West Union, farming there for 40 years. She was a member of St. Alexius Parish, Catholic United Financial and St. Anne’s Christian Women.
Jeanette enjoyed reading, jigsaw puzzles, traveling, keeping journals, albums and watching the Twins and Vikings. The most important things to Jeanette were her Faith and her family. She demonstrated this by praying the Rosary daily, teaching Religion and helping anyone in need. Having her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren gathered together were her source of joy.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Norb, on June 26, 2014; grandson, Gavin Miller, June 17, 2004; and siblings, Elvira “Vi” Grundmayer, Sr. Leona Caspers OSB, Bernie Caspers and Lucy Heinen.
