Tamatha “Tami” Ellen Miller, 55 of Coleman, Okla., passed away on Saturday, November 18, 2023, in Oklahoma City, Okla. Tami was born on August 1, 1968, in Norman, Okla., to Ralph William Cook and Barbara Ann (Ward) Cook.
She graduated from Noble High School and lived in Norman where she worked as a dog groomer. Tami met Rick Miller and they were married on Friday, September 4, 1992, in Noble, Okla. They moved to Coleman and raised three children together. Tami worked at Choctaw Nation for 20 years where she made lifelong friends and was a member of the Hopewell Baptist Church. She loved her family and spoiled them with her love.
Her Grandbabies were her whole world. Tami always had a smile on her face but the smile she wore while holding and playing with her grandbabies was always the biggest and brightest. She loved spending time with her family and her favorite time of year was the holidays. Christmas was her favorite because it gave her one more reason to buy her grandkids gifts. One of her greatest pleasures was going on drives in the country with her husband. They also enjoyed old western movies in the evenings together. Tami loved beautiful flowers, sunsets, and all of God’s beautiful creations. She was her kid’s biggest supporter and number one fan.
She is preceded in death by her grandparents, Bill and Nan Ward and Alton and Dorothy Cook; uncle, Peter Ward; and father-in-law, Travis Miller.
