Morgan Hall Wesley Miller: Jan. 22, 1988-Oct. 27, 2017

Miller

Morgan Halla Wesley Miller was born to Richard and Jeannie Miller, residents of Langley, on Jan. 22, 1988. That day was the beginning of a passionate journey.

She attended South Whidbey schools, Immaculate Conception school in Everett, Bayview High School, Skagit Valley Community College and Cornish College of the Arts.

Starting at a young age Halla took to dancing like a leaf in the wind. Ballet, tap and jazz dance were her loves as she grew. She danced in many performances, including 20 seasons of the Whidbey Island Dance Theatre’s production of “The Nutcracker.”

Graphic art was to come next on her list to conquer, which she pursued privately and prolifically. She brought a smile to many people through her life. Through dance, art, intelligence, laughter and friendship. On Sept. 27, 2017, nearing the end of her battle with cancer, Halla became a mother to a son, Grayson Tyr Miller-Tallman.

She leaves this world after learning to dance through a storm. The battle against glioblastoma was long and fought with tenacity. Opting to take a treatment route of her own, with the guidance of many different doctors, she was able to live much longer than the expected prognosis.

Though quality was what she was searching for in her last chapter, she found a bit of quantity as well.

She lives in the hearts of her son Grayson; the man who loved her, Gerald Tallman; and the woman who raised her to be such a wonderful person, Jeannie Miller. She is now beside the man who taught her how to be free, her father Richard Miller. On Oct. 27, 2017, Halla reached the end of her journey and passed as she slept in peace, forever watching over her loved ones.

A memorial gathering will take place 1-4 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 18, 2017, at Bayview Hall near Langley. Donations may be made in Halla’s name at Coastal Community bank in Freeland.
