In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by a daughter, Rebecca Ann Miller; and sister, Dorothy Ann Main.

Funeral services for Emogene Main Miller will be conducted Saturday, Nov. 2, 2013, at 11 AM at Howard’s Creek Baptist Church, officiated by Rev. Joe London, Rev. John Mough, and Rev. Chris Reinolds.
