Mary L. Miller, 66, of Wheelersburg, went to be with her Lord on Thursday, August 9, 2018, at Best Care in Wheelersburg surrounded by her family. Born on March 28, 1952, she was a daughter of the late James and Darlene Smith Blankenbeckley and retired from Fresenius Medical Care in Portsmouth.

Also preceding her in death were two brothers, Jimmy and Russell Blankenbeckley.
