Betty began her work career with the Army. After several years of traveling, she returned to Charleston to raise her family.

Betty was a member of the Ina Webb Travel Club. She enjoyed traveling and meeting new people with her husband Elmer when he was in the Kanawha Kordsman. She was instrumental in the publication of the Elk River History books.
Betty always had a smile on her face, a kind word for everyone she met, and gave to anyone in need.
Mary is survived by her loving husband, Charles Elmer Miller, daughter, Betty Fluharty, grandsons Scott (Lauren) Risden and Gary (Jenn) Risden, and great-grandchildren, Emma and Elijah.
