Jane Christine “Chris” Miller (nee. Crumley), 67, of St Louis County, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, August 4th 2020 in St Louis County with her beloved family at her side. She was born on January 7th, 1953 in St Louis County to Jane Marquette and Darold Crumley.
Chris spent over 25 years working for Washington University of St Louis, mostly in Earth & Planetary Sciences.
Studying the universe was both a passion and a hobby for her; she even got to touch a piece of the moon and see a nighttime launch of the Space Shuttle at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center. She also loved needlecraft, gems & stones, watching movies, and above all else, Chris loved her family very deeply.
She was preceded in death by her dear brother, Mark Crumley; sister, Laurie McMillan; step-father more affectionately known as “Dad,” Jerry Jones; and her mother, Jane (nee. Marquette) Jones.
Surviving Chris are her children, Charissa Miller of Columbia, Missouri and Dawn Miller of St. Charles, Missouri; grandchildren Cassandra Miller, Kelly (Chris) Spencer, Cara and Andrew Riley; former spouse Earl Miller; other relatives and many friends.
Chris was known and loved by many. Her infectious laugh and warm smile will be missed but remembered forever.
To keep all of Chris’s friends and loved ones safe, there will be no memorial celebration at this time due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
In lieu of flowers, her family suggests memorial contributions be made in Chris’ name to Shriners Hospital for Children – St Louis, Attn: Development Office, 4400 Clayton Ave, St Louis, MO 63110.
