Rebecca (Becci) Kellogg Miller was born November 23, 1945, in Provo Utah to Walter Leo and Edith Aretta Kellogg. She attended local schools and met the love of her life, Micheal Wayne Miller. They were married July 21, 1962, and the marriage was later solemnized in the Salt Lake temple on June 6, 1965. Mike and Becci had five sons. Becci was preceded in death by her husband Mike and her son Mark.
Becci is survived by four sons, Mike (Laura) Miller, Matt (Janet) Miller, Marshall (Cory) Miller, and Morgan (Jenn) Miller, and daughter-in-law Rebecca Miller. Her grandchildren and great-grandchildren were the light of her life and brought her many hours of joy as they visited and as she celebrated their accomplishments. There was no more fierce Mama Bear than Becci when it came to her grandkids. Becci enjoyed crafting and was a skilled seamstress, artist, and was very creative. Nothing went to waste and everything could be converted to an art project. She enjoyed making porcelain dolls from scratch and sewing outfits for them.
Becci went along with many adventures with Mike and the boys and enjoyed fishing at Strawberry, hunting in the mountains, boating, and camping near the Skyline Drive near Mayfield. She would read a book while the guys stalked deer, gathered pine cones, or caught salamanders in the pond. Her love of reading was passed along and she taught the boys to read early, and many hours were spent at home with books of all sorts being enjoyed.
Becci worked hard to provide and to support Mike in his business. She would bring dinner to jobsites in the evening as Mike worked long hours and taught a good work ethic to their sons. She was by Mike’s side as he fought and beat cancer in 2000, then again years later as he battled Alzheimer’s. Her husband and best friend died May 5, 2016.
Becci struggled with health issues and the loss of Mike until July 8, 2020, when she died peacefully at home surrounded by family. Her family is happy knowing that she was finally reunited with Mike, free of pain. No formal services were held due to nationwide health concerns and immediate family gathered to commemorate her life. Please feel free to share and to add photos or memories to help celebrate Becci’s life.

To know Becci was to love her. She wasn't that much older than me when I met her. She fell in love with Mike & we got to fall in love with her along with him. Our family was better because of Becci. She loved gatherings, outdoor activities, laughter, cousins playing together and children. She loved her boys more than life itself and their families were priceless to her. She was lonely for Mike, she felt old and no good at times. Which was just not true...the pandemic made it hard on everyone to get to visit loved ones. But, one thing I can tell you. Becci was dearly loved. I love her still and miss her texts to me on pretty much a daily basis. I still have the entire thread of them from when Mike was put on Hospice. Heaven is fortunate. Much love to you boys & families.
