Mrs. Miller was born at Columbus, Neb., Nov. 11, 1871, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. C. Tiffany. She came west in the early '90s and located at Sheridan, Wyo., where, in 1894, she married D. C. Wrighter after whom the Lewiston camp of United Spanish War Veterans is named.

The family came to Idaho in 1900 and resided at Pierce for three years, where Mr. Wrighter was engaged in mining and engineering. In 1903 they moved to Lewiston. Capt. Wrighter served the city as engineer until his death in 1918.

In 1934 Mrs. Wrighter married Mr. Miller, a retired railroad man of Eastport and Bonners Ferry, where they lived on a ranch. Mrs. Miller came to Lewiston last March. She was a communicant of the Episcopal church and a member of the auxiliary of Spanish war veterans of Lewiston.

Kells, both of Marion, Ind., and Mrs. Lou Ketcham, Lewiston; also two granddaughters, Betty Wrighter, Lewiston, and Nancy Lee Wrighter, Spokane.
