Sierra was born July 20, 2002, in Bluffton to Kurt Eugene Miller and Beth Bredemeyer Frater. 

She graduated from Bluffton High School and was an advocate for Helping Hands in Bluffton and attended the Church of the Nazarene. Sierra loved working at the Corner Depot in Bluffton. “Sierra treated everyone she met as family and was very responsible, genuine, outgoing and friendly. She was loved by our customers that looked forward to being greeted by her smile and caring personality. She will be missed by her Corner Depot family,” according to Barb at the Corner Depot. 

Survivors include her father, Kurt Miller of Tennessee, and her mother, Beth Frater of Ossian. Sierra’s pride and joy in life was her son, Grayson Eli Miller. Grayson made his mommy so proud and was the source of her constant twinkle in her eyes.

Bell of Ossian and Sherry Amundson of Huntington; her grandpa, Ron Miller of Claypool; and two nephews; Avery and Emerson Reed.
