Alana Sue Miller (NEE: Konneman)
Miller, Alana Sue (nee: Konneman), 61 of Warrenton, Missouri passed away peacefully on Friday, January 27th at home with her husband by her side. She is preceded in death by her mother and father Nina Sue and Boyd Konneman and brother Alan Konneman. Alana is survived by her husband Steve, sister Denise Konneman, and 3 step-children, Jackie (Jeremy) Frey, Liz Becker, and Kevin Seago. Alana leaves behind 4 grandchildren, Violet, Abraham, Isla, and Morgan.
Alana was a fierce and dedicated wife, mother, sister, daughter, grandmother, and friend to all she met. She was born in St. Louis but grew up in Texas along with her brother and sister and loved the warm Texas sun. Alana moved back to St. Louis in 1998 and married her husband, Steve. They would have celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary next month. Alana was a giver and a kind-hearted spirit who was always thinking of others through her compassionate gifts and cards, sometimes just to say she was thinking of you. She did not need a reason to send a card and brighten someone’s day. Alana always had a little something for everyone at family gatherings. Jewelry, a purse, or a box full of goodies for her grandbabies. She adored her grandchildren and dogs, loved music, dancing in the living room, finding good bargains at garage sales, and getting her nails done. She was a collector of many beautiful things including dolls and fine Japanese porcelain. She loved Betty Boop, Lucille Ball, makeup, fashion, and the latest beauty products and tips.
After a long road of health issues due to throat cancer, Alana’s bravery and faith in Christ helped her through her last few years. Her presence will be dearly missed by all and the void unreplaceable. May her soul now rest in peace and return to its former glory that we all remember her for.
A celebration of life will be held at Lakeview Estates Clubhouse @ 28100 Oak Tree Warrenton, MO 63383 on Sunday, February 26th from 1-5pm. For planning, please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org or text 314-280-5941.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. The Miller/Konneman family would like to thank the wonderful staff at 3 Oaks Hospice for their continuous care.
Alana was my first niece. She was the child of my husband’s brother. When she was a little tot, I used to play my guitar and sing songs to her. We were very close. I used to test hearing in the schools for the county of St Louis. When I showed up at her school, she was so excited to see me that tears poured out of her eyes. She was a sensitive and loving little girl. I was so sad that when we moved away I lost touch with her. She grew up and I had no idea where she lived.
I was so excited to find her about a decade ago. My husband and I tried to reach out to her, but she
was not open to it at the time. Then, over time, I heard that she was quite sick. No one should have to go through the pain that she went through for all those years. Now, she is at peace and in the arms of her loving Jesus. She is home.
