Gertrude Elliott Miller, 89, went to be with her Lord on December 12, 2016. She was born in Wilkes County on December 26, 1926 to the late Robert and Jettie Garrison Elliott.

She was a sweet soul who strived to treat others as she would like to be treated. She really did adhere to the Golden Rule. Gertrude's family, brother, and sisters meant so much to her. They were a daily constant that kept her engaged and were a time of joy in her life. Gertrude loved them dearly. There will be an absence in our lives that is hard to explain.

Gertrude is preceded in death by her loving husband, Jack Miller, and her brothers, Buster and Gene Elliott. She leaves behind her children, Keith (Frances) Miller, Dwayne Miller, and Brenda (Brian) Carroll; her grandchildren, Tyler Carroll, Courtney Carroll, and Grace Miller; her sisters, Dot Chappell and Sonja (Garland) Crews; her brother, Jackie (Peggie) Elliott; and many nieces, nephews, cousins, caretakers, and loved ones.

Thanks to all who thought of her or wrote notes/cards of encouragement. She was a strong, resilient woman who gave it her all until her body failed her. But, her spirit was strong and her going into Jesus loving arms brings peace to us all. May God bless all the people who thought of her in her time of strife and may God bless her. Gertrude was a mother that anyone would be proud to call Mother. She truly was a "diamond in the rough."

We love her and always will.

The funeral services will be held Sunday, December 18th at 2pm at Frank Vogler & Sons Clemmons Chapel, 2849 Middlebrook Dr, with Donald Gordon officiating.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be made to Community Hospice or Hospice and Palliative Care.
