The Millers

The Millers

The kindness and compassion of Jim and Aileen is something that their friends remember fondly. Their foresight and generosity allow their kindness to live on and the fruits of their success to continue supporting the community they called home.

Over the course of their sixty-year marriage, Jim and Aileen Miller successfully built Jim’s local company, J.E. Miller Corporation. They also built a strong and loving relationship. When Aileen’s health began to fail, Jim visited her twice a day and ate dinner with her each evening at the nursing facility where she lived. The kindness and compassion of Jim and Aileen is something that their friends remember fondly.

The Millers chose to name us as a beneficiary of their estate. Their foresight and generosity allow their kindness to live on and the fruits of their success to continue supporting the community they called home. The Jim and Aileen Miller Fund will forever support the issues that mattered to them during their lives, including literacy and support for immigrant communities. Creating a fund with us is a great tool for charitably minded people who are looking for a way to have their values – including generosity – live on.
