Marie Miller

SHC of Greeneville
Honored for Professional Accomplishments, Community Involvement


Marie Miller was born on April 3, 1940 in Fall Branch, Tennessee. Her parents, Lucian Babb and Ethel Jane Darnell were farmers. Marie recalls her fondest childhood memory of sitting around the fireplace on her father’s knee and listening to her parents talk about their day. Marie attended Fort Black High School in Virginia. She met her husband, Kenneth while waiting on the bus at the old dairy farm which is currently the Bristol Motor Speedway. Marie and Kenneth have been married for 57 years. Marie began her career as a Nursing Assistant at the Greene Valley Developmental Center. Marie served her community as a caregiver for more than 37 years. Marie is a faithful member of Calvary Baptist Church, where she taught Sunday School for twenty years. After retirement, Marie dedicated countless hours volunteering with the Glenwood Elementary School in Greene County, TN. She says she was never able to have children but was blessed to be able to teach other children about compassion and God’s love. Today Marie spends time ministering to the staff and offering words of encouragement. She enjoys arts and crafts, reading her Bible, spending time with her husband and talking about their pet cockatiel “Buddy.” We recognize Marie as a pillar of the community and as an example of what it means to serve with selflessness and love.
