Claudia Jean Miller Vance


Claudia Jean Miller Vance, 58, went home to meet Jesus Monday, May 12, 2014.  Claudia was born December 18, 1955 in Tulsa, OK. The daughter of Estelle Miller.  She married the love of her life, Howard Vance on January 24, 1994.

Claudia loved spending time with family and traveling.  She especially enjoyed combining the two loves by sight-seeing with her husband Howard all across the United States. Her favorite places to visit were Oregon and Washington State and was always inspired by the beauty in the nature they saw.

Claudia was preceded in death by her father, James and grandparents, Joshua and Hattie Sills.  She is survived by her husband; mother; daughter, Sarah Gilliam; son, Joshua Gilliam; grandchildren, Triston and Mckinsey Royse; many cousins; and special friends.

The celebration of Claudia’s life will be held at New Hope Assembly of God on Saturday, May 17, 2014 at 10:00 a.m., with Monte Humphrey officiating.

The family has entrusted Bradley Family Funeral Service with the arrangements.  Friends may send condolences to the family at
