Ila Faye Pederson Miller
1919 - 2008


Native Texan, Ila Faye Miller, worked as a registered nurse at Santa Rosa Hospital to help support the growing family business, Bill Miller Bar-B-Q. Always an Incarnate Word supporter, Mrs. Miller died at age 89 in 2008.

In grateful recognition of a gift by her son, UIW Trustee, John K. Miller and his wife Vladimira, we name the school in her honor. Her true career was, like ours, a Mission of Service.
