Blanche Irene Miller was born September 5, 1935 in Maine Prairie Township, Stearns County to George and Lilly (Olson) Vannurden, one of sixteen children. She grew up on the farm, until her family moved into Kimball. Blanche attended school in Kimball, where she graduated with the Class of 1953. On March 16, 1957, Blanche was united in marriage to Allen J. Miller at the Church of Christ in Kimball. They made their home on a farm near Fair Haven, where they raised their 4 children. Blanche was a longtime member of the Kimball Christian Church and her life was centered around her faith and family. In her spare time, she enjoyed quilting, needlework, cooking, and baking. It was not unusual for Blanche to share the fruits of her labor with others.
