Shelly Rae (Siewertsen) Miller, the daughter of John and Rosa Beth (Siewertsen) Bass, was born January 6, 1963 in Cedar Rapids. She attended school through the Charles City School System and continued her education at NIACC receiving her CNA Certification.
Shelly was united in marriage to Charles “Chuck” Miller on September 28, 1992 in Charles City. The couple made their home in Charles City for most of their married life and raised their family. Shelly worked at several retirement homes as a CNA, but the most recent was the Salsbury Baptist Home in Charles City. She also worked at Sara Lee in New Hampton for over 10 years until it closed, and after all of her children graduated high school she became a housewife and also started her grandma duties to watch her grandchildren at home.
Shelly enjoyed gardening, collecting carousels, hot rods with Chuck and just being outside to enjoy nature. Her biggest passion in life was her grandchildren.
