PAULDING -- Julie Marie Miler, born in Defiance, Ohio, on November 13, 1984, to Sheila (Hacker Jr.) Combs of Paulding and Richard Miler of Oakwood, Ohio, got her wings to fly with angels on April 24, 2013. She was killed in a car accident involving her and her boyfriend of 10 years, Josh Finfrock.
Julie was truly loved by all. She loved her family; her boyfriend; her cat was her baby since she had no kids of her own. Her cat's name is Pink. She left her beautiful and cherished niece, Eliza Schleuter, who named her baby boy, Pink. Julie loved animals, especially butterflies, cats, hummingbirds, flowers, gardening, spending time with family and especially time with her boyfriend, Josh.
She leaves behind her mother and stepdad, Sheila and Hacker Combs Jr. of Paulding; her father, Richard Miler of Oakwood; her baby sister who she loved dearly, Jessie Miler (Brandon Schleuter) of Paulding; her big brother, Richard (Ashley) Miler Jr. of Paulding; and two stepsisters, Angie Gipple of Hicksville and Chrissy (Brian) McClish of Hicksville. Julie had nine nieces and two nephews; many aunts; uncles; and cousins who loved her. Julie had many friends. I don't think she knew how much she was truly loved. Julie liked ICP and loved going to shows with Josh. Her uncle, Charlie McGuire, who also lived with Julie and her parents, loved Julie and she loved him.
She was preceded in death by her grandparents, Richard McGuire, Eugene and Frances Nelms, Janet and Harmon "Duke" Miler; and a brother, Joshua Miler.
Funeral services will be conducted at 11 a.m. Monday, April 29, at Den Herder Funeral Home, Paulding. She will be laid to rest next to her grandparents in Rochester Cemetery, Cecil. Visitation will be from 4-8 p.m. Sunday, April 28, at Den Herder Funeral Home, Paulding, and one hour prior to services on Monday.
