Valerie Elizabeth Burns Miller

Valerie Elizabeth Burns Miller, Highland Ranch, CO, formerly of Kilgore, passed away peacefully on May 14, 2017 following a brave battle with cancer. She was 65 and had recently retired from the Highland Ranch Community Association after working 13 years as their Marketing & Special Projects Coordinator.
Born on the Naval Air Station hospital in Corpus Christi, TX to H.J. “Jake” and Wanda Burns, Valerie grew up in Kilgore. She graduated from Kilgore high School, attended Kilgore College and graduated from Stephen F. Austin State University. She married her high school sweetheart Ron Miller and they would have celebrated their 45th wedding anniversary on June 30 of this year.
Job transfers took them across the country, as their family grew to include two sons Mark and Brian, before making their final move to Colorado.
Valerie enjoyed reading, traveling the world and spending time with her grandsons.
She will be dearly missed by her loving family and the many friends she touched during her life. Valerie is survived by her husband Ron; her mother Wanda Burns; sons, Mark and Brian Miller; grandsons Scott, Jake, and Joshua and Jakes’ mother, Angela Meagher.
She is preceded in death by her father Jake Burns and her brother Larry Burns.
Services will be held on Thursday, May 18, 2017 at 10 in the morning at the St. Andrew United Methodist Church located at 9203 S. University Blvd., Highland Ranch, CO.
In lieu of flowers the family requests that donations be made in her name to a favorite charity.
