Kathleen "Kathy" Monterey Miller
b. Oct. 28, 1943 d. Oct. 23, 2019

Kathleen "Kathy" Monterey Miller, age 75, of Whipholt, MN passed away peacefully at her home on Wednesday, October 23, 2019.

Kathy was born on October 28, 1943 in Chicago, IL to Kermit and Marie (Reigler) Norris. After graduation from high school, Kathy began working as a corporate accountant. On March 3, 1962, Kathy was married to Donald Miller and they were blessed with a son, Wayne. In 1978, they purchased Pine Lake Resort from Kathy's grandparents and made Whipholt, MN their home. Along with running the resort, Kathy worked as the administrator for the Cass County Sheriff's Office for 22 years. When Don passed away in 1999, Kathy continued to run the resort with the help of wonderful employees who she came to consider family.

Kathy had many hobbies and interests. She was an avid reader and enjoyed various types of literature. She was gifted with her hands, crocheting blankets and making glass pin ornaments for her grandchildren and friends. She was an animal lover and enjoyed feeding and watching the wildlife that graced Pine Lake and her property. She was wildly independent, witty and had a great sense of humor. Kathy loved her resort customers and looked forward to seeing returning families each summer, many that had been coming for generations.

Kathy will be lovingly remembered by her son, Wayne (Melissa) Miller; three grandchildren: Danielle (James) Miller, Michelle (Paul) Lipscomb and Brandon (Paige) Miller; two great-grandchildren: P.J. and Payton; her brother, Wayne Norris; as well as nieces, nephews other relatives and special friends.

She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband, Don and her sister-in-law, Pat.
