Ms. Erika Miller was born October 10, 1983 in Lee’s Summit, Missouri. Erika loved being outside as a child. She spent her favorite part of her childhood in Washington State. At this time she learned to love the beauty of the mountains, the ocean and being one with nature. Thanks to her Grandma Brenda and Great Grandma Katherine she was able to enjoy clam digging on the beach. Erika attended Raytown South High School. After high school she became a mother to her first born, Caleb in 2002 and then applied to Cosmetology School to become an Esthetician. She enjoyed school but loved being a mother and homemaker. She also enjoyed party planning, landscaping, and crafting. After cosmetology school she became a stay at home mom and had 6 more wonderful children; Caden, Colten, Casen, Frederik, Evan and then came the only girl, Kaia in 2020. Erika was known as a calm natured mother with her children unless they woke her up before her morning coffee. Erika will always be remembered for the patience she had with her children and the time that she spent planning their birthdays and other festivities. Not only did she love spending time with her children she also enjoyed spending time with family and friends.
Erika’s heart was as big as her smile. You could always count on her to lend a helping hand. She was passionate and fearless about sharing the love of Jesus Christ, her Lord and Savior. Erika’s adventurous free-spirited soul will be cherished and remembered forever. She is dearly loved and will be greatly missed.
