Rosemary “Rosie” Miller, age 92, of Richmond died Thursday morning (July 30, 2020) at her residence. She was born in Richmond, on February 4, 1928 to Leo “Hap” and Frances Hillman Kutter. She was a lifelong Richmond resident. She married John (Jack) Miller on August 6, 1949, and together they raised 10 children. She was known to fondly say, “I would do it all again in a heartbeat!” Rosie was a homemaker and later worked as a cook at the former Henery’s Restaurant. Rosie loved flowers and was known for her beautiful flower gardens. Ice cream was her “heaven on earth”. She was a member of Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton Parish. Rosie had a special connection to a group known as “The Nine Dills” which was a group of friends from the eighth grade of which members Hilda and Babe still survive.
