Miley, Althea L.
  Althea L. Miley of May's Landing, N.J., died on Dec. 5, 2011, at the age of 67,

Miller, Jane K.
  Jane K. Miller, who enriched her community with a passion for justice, music, 
storytelling and good fun, died on Oct. 19, 2011, in Ithaca, N.Y. She was 82.
  For 20 years she lived year-round at Chautauqua Institution, after sharing 
almost 40 years in New Bethlehem, Pa., with her husband, Dr. David L. Miller, 
now deceased.
 Of the many adjectives that come to mind, her family and friends all agree 
that Mrs. Miller was fearless. As a new college graduate, for instance, 
she boarded a converted troop ship and spent a summer hitchhiking through 
European cities still recovering from war. A few years later, she slid - 
literally - into the Chautauqua Gorge with two young sons and delighted in 
their intrepid exploration.
  More importantly, Mrs. Miller was fearless about taking unpopular stands in 
the face of injustice. In the late 1950s, for example, she organized busloads 
of college students to picket a school that refused to accept a black student 
teacher. Later, she ran for and served on the town council to advocate for 
low-income housing, among other issues. Mrs. Miller spent countless hours 
paging through dusty court documents gathering evidence that helped unseat 
a judge who dispatched more fear than justice. And she started a chapter of 
Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG) at Chautauqua more than 20 
years ago.
  Among many tireless efforts to lessen the burdens of poverty and displacement, 
Mrs. Miller started the Thrift Shop in New Bethlehem, which became a beloved 
community center for the seniors who volunteered there. Her financial goal 
was to break even at the end of each month. Despite her best efforts, the 
shop always made a profit. So she plowed the money into non-perishable food 
for those in need and provided emergency funding for families with special 
requests - a refrigerator, for example, or a suit for a young man about to
become the first in his family to attend college.
  What she called her most meaningful activity began in 1981, when she saw a 
news story about the cessation of a visa program for Cambodian refugees. It 
lamented a lack of sponsors for survivors of Pol Pot's killing fields. While 
she had no power to change the immigration law, Mrs. Miller never felt 
powerless. A few weeks later, a Cambodian family of five arrived in New 
Bethlehem. To this day they call her, "Mom."
  Jane Miller wasn't afraid to look foolish, and she often did. But as 
she always said, she went pretty far knowing just five chords on the guitar.
 The world would be a richer place if more of us practiced her many flavors 
of fearlessness.
Born on Jan. 30, 1929. in Sharon Hill, Pa., Mrs. Miller was the daughter 
of Deborah and Wilmer Kreider. She graduated from Bucknell University in 
1950. In her mid-40s, she studied Greek and Old Testament at Pittsburgh 
Theological Seminary.
  Mrs. Miller's husband and biggest fan, Dr. David L. Miller, died in 2006.
She is survived by sons: R. James of Ithaca, N.Y., and Jeffery of Chartrettes, 
France; and by daughter, Margaret of Berkeley, CA. Four extraordinary 
granddaughters are honored to carry 'Jane' as a middle name: Sarah, Alexis, 
Laura, and Ming. Three grandsons inherited her sense of adventure and fun: 
Benjamin, Brice and Chamren. She is also survived by a sister, Annabel 
Schnure of Bethlehem, Pa.; and daughters-in-law Chrissie Schelhas-Miller, 
Francoise Navasse Miller and Laura Horn. She will be sorely missed by her 
nieces, nephews, robust circles of allies in New Bethlehem and Chautauqua, 
and by countless others who accepted her friendship and hospitality.
  First Presbyterian Church of Jamestown, N.Y., will hold a memorial service 
at 3 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 29, 2011.
  Her family asks that gifts be made in her honor to Chautauqua Institution, 
in lieu of flowers. Contact David Williams of the Chautauqua Foundation, 
P.O. Box 28, Chautauqua, NY 14722 or dwilliams@ciweb.org.
