Phyllis "Kate" Miller, 61, of Topeka, passed away on January 5, 2022 surrounded by her children.
She was born on November 12, 1960 to Clyde and Phyllis (Sorden) Miller in Topeka, KS.
Kate graduated from Washburn University in 1995 with a degree in business. She worked for the United States Postal Service for 24 years. Kate went above and beyond in her role as a mother to her children, and without hesitation would extend that “momness” to the friends and significant others of her children. She loved being a grandmother more than anything, often spoiling her grandchildren & telling stories about them whenever she got the chance.
Kate is survived by her life partner, James Hagedorn; children, Katie (Phillip) Martin, Morgan (Leonard Cobin Jr.) McNorton, Thomas McNorton, and Haley (Andrew) Golding; grandchildren, Grace Bartley, Jacob Bartley, Camden Martin, and expecting Baby Martin in August 2022.
She was preceded in death by both of her parents; her sister, Peggy Wilkinson, and her son-in-law Kyle Bartley.
Memorial services will be held on Thursday, January 20, 2022, 3:00 pm at the Parker-Price Cremations, Funerals & Receptions.
Memorial contributions may be made to Kate Miller Fund and sent in the care of 1st Kansas Credit Union to be used for her grandchildren's future.
