Barbara Jean (Clifton) Miller, 72, went to be with her heavenly father on May 7, 2020 at her home in Nevada, Missouri, while surrounded by family. She was born on September 15, 1947 in St. Louis, Missouri to Homer Chester Clifton and Dorothy Elizabeth (Johnson) Clifton. She married Clarence Arthur Miller on April 8, 1965 in Fort Pierce, Florida.
After moving to Nevada, Barbara started working for the Nevada State hospital until she decided to become a traveling assistant physical therapist around southwest Missouri. When she wasn’t working, she enjoyed listening to Elvis Presley music, reading, watching Christmas movies, and snuggling her beloved pets.
Barbara is survived by one son, Richard Dale Miller (Misty), and two grandchildren Kristal Renee Miller and Cody Arthur Miller of Nevada, Missouri. Barbara was preceded in death by her loving husband, her parents, two sisters Vickie (Clifton) Brown and Patricia Clifton, and one half-brother Larry Joe Lamastus.
