Obituary

Constance Sue (Stevenson) Miller, 74, of Plattsburgh, passed on from this life peacefully Tuesday, June 9, 2020, at CVPH Medical Center, in Plattsburgh, NY.
Born Friday, August 24, 1945, in Hancock, NY, she was the daughter of Willard and Jane (Chamberlain) Stevenson.
Connie attended Morrisville-Eaton Central School in Morrisville, NY, during which time she was an exchange student in Medellín, Colombia, and graduated as the Salutatorian of the Class of 1963. Connie began her college career at The University of Rochester in 1963, then moved to Plattsburgh where she married Donald E. Miller on August 22, 1964. They were married 46 years. Connie continued her studies and earned a bachelor’s degree in English and Spanish at Plattsburgh State in 1967. She later completed two master’s degrees in English and Latin American Studies.
Señora Miller taught Spanish at Peru Central School in Peru, NY for 31 years from 1968 until her retirement in 2000. She served as Foreign Language Department Chairperson, helped initiate the State Mentor Teacher Intern Program at Peru, and was a very active member of The Peru Association of Teachers. She represented Peru Teachers at the local, state, and national levels. She was also an adjunct instructor of Spanish at North Country Community College. After her retirement from teaching, Connie continued to work as a Mentor Teacher Consultant for the NYS Education Department at schools in New York City.
She began retirement by attending clown classes and created the character Raya (Spanish for “stripe”) and volunteered in her striped clown costume to entertain local school children, nursing home residents, and hospice patients.
Connie was a congregant of The United Church of Morrisville, and then in 1975, was baptized and confirmed at St. Peter’s Church in Plattsburgh. She later served on the St. Peter’s Church Council and was a Lector. She volunteered at various organizations, including The Clinton County Christmas Bureau and Elmore SPCA.
Her first trip to Nicaragua for humanitarian aid was in 2001, and Connie was instrumental in the formation of North Country Mission of Hope since its inception. She served as Mission of Hope’s Executive Secretary and member of the Leadership Team for almost 10 years. She traveled to Nicaragua annually from 2003-2012 and spent a great deal of her time helping to connect sponsored Nicaraguan students with their American host families and translating the letters they exchanged.
In 2013, Connie became a docent at the Alice T Miner Museum in Chazy. She was also a former member of the Psi Chapter of Delta Kappa Gamma.
Her many hobbies included her love of travel and golf-- both of which she shared with her husband Don. Connie enjoyed bowling, swimming, kayaking, cross country skiing, crocheting, sewing, and reading. She kept a beautiful home flower garden and tended every flower and plant she encountered.
She adored her six grandchildren, and attended every performance, concert, and sporting event of theirs that she could. She was a woman who brought joy with her wherever she went, and her laughter and spirit will live on in everyone she touched with her kindness and generosity.
She is survived by her daughters Julia Miller, Krista Jiampetti, and Laura Miller, her grandchildren Jonas, Montana, Max, Charlotte, Grayson, and Luke, her sister Priscilla Suits, her brother and his wife, Richard (Dawn) Stevenson, many nieces and nephews and extended Miller Family relatives.
Connie is predeceased by her parents, Willard (2004) and Jane (2008), her brother-in-law Merton (2003), her husband Donald (2011).
Her daughters wish to thank the staff at Pine Harbour Assisted Living and the medical staff on the 5th floor at CVPH for the wonderful care they provided for their Mother.
Donations to a scholarship fund established in honor of Connie, and her late husband Don, may be made online at this link https://paypal.me/pools/c/8pQLMfcsv4 or contact Julia at CDmillerscholarship@gmail.com

We were saddened to hear of the passing of Connie Miller. Our deepest sympathy to Connie’s family. It must be so difficult. We are thinking about you. Connie loved her students and teaching Spanish. She gave many hours working on district and regional committees to improve education for all students. Her students were lucky to have had Connie as she cared and taught her students well. She saw people in need here in our community and in Nicaragua; she cared enough to make many sacrifices and helped, uplifting the lives of so many.

My deepest condolences to Mrs. Miller's family. I had her for Spanish for three years and she is one of my all time favorite teachers. Very kind and patient. I would run into her occasionally and she always remembered me which made me feel special considering she taught thousands of kids over the years. Rest in peace Senora Miller, I will always remember you fondly. Wendy Stewart PCS class of '82.

So sorry to hear of Connie’s passing. We all knew we were in good hands when we worked with her; so knowledgeable and competent. She was a great lady with the cutest giggle.
