Memorial service Saturday for Linda Jo Miller


A memorial service will be held on Saturday, April 13, for Linda Jo Miller, a Menlo Park resident for nearly 40 years who died on March 29 at the age of 72.

The service will be at 2 p.m. at Nativity Church, 210 Oak Grove Ave. in Menlo Park, where she was a longtime parishioner.

Miller was "a dedicated mother and grandmother," her daughter Laura Planting said. "She loved to travel around the world, mostly with her family. ... She spent time with us, her family, and her many friends -- she made friends easily and kept them forever."

Miller was preceded in death by her husband, Lee Miller, who died in 2017.

In addition to her daughter, Laura, she is survived by three other children, Rob Planting of San Carlos, Shannon Phillis of Cookha, England, and Leslie Klein of Menlo Park; and two grandchildren.

In lieu of flowers, the family prefers that memorial donations be made to the American Heart Association.
