Nancy Sue Miller, age 71, Blue Mound, Kan., passed away Saturday, Aug. 12, 2023. She was born on June 2, 1952, in Iola, Kan., the daughter of Bill and Velma Gilbert Bain. She graduated from Colony Crest High School and went on to Baker University to receive a
Bachelor’s Degree. Nancy was united in marriage to Virgil Keith Miller and February 21, 1976. He preceded her in death on Aug. 8, 2002. In 1982, Nancy began a business venture known as
The Tax Specialist. The business is still in existence, now being run by her daughter Kristen Krull. 
Nancy was much more than an accountant. She held several securities licenses and was just a good sounding board for people when they were making financial decisions. She and
husband Virgil were the epitome of rodeo parents, making sure the kids had all they needed to rodeo all over the United States. She loved KU Basketball and attended The Barn Church before
her health would not allow it. She was also preceded in death by her parents. Nancy is survived by a son, Jeffrey Keith Miller (Jenni); two daughters, Kristen Lee Krull (Chad) and Danielle Kay Snyder (Brett); two brothers, Steve and Eric Bain; a sister, Laurie Hamilton; and six
grandchildren, Reed, Reagan, Raylen, Ryder, Paxton, and Brekyn.
A private family graveside will be held at the Sunny Slope Cemetery. A gathering with
fellowship and food will be held 5 p.m. Friday, Aug. 18, 2023, at the Linn County 4-H Building.
Nancy will lie in state Thursday, Aug. 17, from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the Schneider Funeral Home and Crematory, Mound City Chapel. Memorial Contributions are suggested to Cowboys for Cancer, c/o Schneider Funeral Home, P.O. Box J, Mound City, KS 66056. Online condolences can be left at
