Raela Grace Miller entered this life as a miracle on October 17, 2007 and went home to be with her Lord and Savior on Wednesday, February 6, 2019. Raela was a brilliant, sweet, kind, and loving girl, but she could be bossy when she was in her “big sister” mode. She was known to be a voracious reader; she especially enjoyed Harry Potter books. Raela was known to her family as a quiet kid, but she did enjoy being outdoors and riding four-wheelers; you could find her outside on a swing with a book. She also enjoyed crafts and teaching her siblings and her Mom said she was a second set of hands for her. Raela was sure and strong in her faith, throughout her illness she never faltered. Her family said of her that her faith could move mountains. As her illness progressed, Raela was able to meet one of her idols from the Disney Channel, Sophia Carson through the “Make-a-Wish” foundation. Raela loved everybody and wanted to help, she even made blankets for other sick kids. She loved her dog Sassy, and Sassy loved her; Sassy was upset all night when Raela passed away. Raela had an infectious personality that touched many lives, and she will be greatly missed by all.
Raela is preceded in death by her maternal grandmother, Rhonda Stuart; great grandparents, Thelma Castolenia, Edward Kelley, and Marty Wheeler.
