Obituary for Lemuel M. Miller

WALDOBORO – Lemuel M. Miller, 89, died peacefully, surrounded by his family at his home, Wednesday, May 30, 2018
Born in Friendship, February 1, 1929, he was the son of Lemuel S. and Vivian Larrabee Miller. He attended Cushing schools and Thomaston High School.

On February 1st, 1949, Lem married Geraldine M. Levensaler. The couple made their home in Cushing until moving to their home in Waldoboro in 1960, where he has since resided. Mrs. Miller died in 1993.
Lem was known as a hardworking man all his life. Never able to sit idle, he was always busy, whether digging clams, cutting wood, landscaping, hauling gravel from his gravel pits or plowing snow. For more than 65 years, he operated a rubbish removal service. He continued digging clams and cutting wood right up until last year.

For many years he was an avid hunter.

He was a long time active member of the Thomaston Congregation Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses. One of his favorite scriptures was John 6:40.

Other than his parents and his wife, Lem was pre-deceased by a son Kendall L. Miller in 1953, and two sisters, Gloria Mank and Esther Mank. He is survived by five children, Bradley A. Miller and his wife Valerie, Mark A. Miller and his wife Diana, Larry P. Miller and his wife Sharon, Roderick J. Miller all of Waldoboro, Deborah J. Miller of Searsmont; two sisters, Marjorie Donnell of Connecticut, Verleigh ‘Snooky’ Sanborn of Waldoboro; seven grandchildren, Lance, Jeremey, Katie, Todd, Jill, Felecia and Tara, as well as several great-grandchildren and three great-great-grandchildren.
