After a lifetime of love and compassion, Lila Standing Miller passed away peacefully at her home in Tremonton, Utah, October 25, 2019. Lila was born, January 16, 1931 in Fielding, Utah. She was the daughter of Leonard A. and Leona A. Earl Standing. She was the youngest of six children. She met Dennis Miller at their clarinet lesson when they were freshmen at Bear River High School. Lila and Dennis dated throughout high school, graduating together. They were married in the Salt Lake LDS Temple in 1949. They made their home in Tremonton where Dennis was working for his dad at American Oil Company in Tremonton. This later became Miller Gas Company. After marriage, she stayed busy in raising her family, and being involved in community affairs such as civic club, and church service. She loved serving in the Primary. They were blessed with four children and their family enjoyed many gatherings at their cabin on Bear Lake. They also loved to travel, especially the annual fishing trips to Yellowstone. They later purchased a home in St. George and loved to snowbird every winter there. She loved to ski, golf, swim, boat and entertain family and friends with delicious meals.
