Tribute & Message From The Family

Carolyn Pepper Miller was born in Mobile, Alabama on July 9th, 1938 just 30 minutes after her twin sister, Mada, to Alta McCollum Pepper and Horton Pepper. She passed away Sunday March 10th, 2019 in her sleep, at home, in Round Rock, Texas.

Twin sisters Carolyn and Mada played professional level piano through their young life until college. Carolyn then earned her Bachelor's in Business at Trinity University in San Antonio, Texas, where she met her future husband Will Weatherford Miller. Carolyn and Will were married in a double ceremony with Mada and her groom, Arthur Wenske, on February 27th, 1960.

Carolyn was a long time member of the Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd. She enjoyed years of helping others through her volunteer work as a member of the Helping Hand Home, the Natural Science Guild of Austin, the Woman's Symphony League and the Junior League of Austin, where she especially enjoyed serving as advertising Chairman of the first several Christmas Affairs. She served on the boards of the Thankful Hubbard Chapter of the DAR and as president of the Junior Austin Woman's Club. She and her husband were presidents of Les Patrons, which helped revitalize the Paramount Theater.

In her late forties, Carolyn went back to school and earned her Master's in Education in Counseling and then her L.P.C. and L.C.D.C.. She worked for a number of years at MHMR and also had her own private practice. She loved being a therapist and helped so many people.

Carolyn was preceded in death by her husband Will Weatherford Miller. She is survived by her sister, Mada Wenske, her daughter, Kathy Miller Henshaw (Eric), son, Will Weatherford Miller Jr. (Kim), her seven grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. She was a devoted mother, wife, sister, and friend. She was a wise person, with a big heart and she will be missed.

My deepest condolences to the family and friends of Carolyn. When someone you love becomes a memory, the memory becomes a treasure when it fills your heart with love and brings you joy. May you find comfort in Jesus promise of the hope of everlasting life on earth at John 6:40.

I met Carolyn at Wyoming Springs Assisted Living when my father lived there. They usually ate together, and I had the pleasure of knowing Carolyn. She was so interesting and engaged. My father and I enjoyed her company, and she was a good friend to us both. I visited her a few times after my father's death, and she always had a warm smile and boosted my spirits more than I did hers. She will be missed.

Carolyn was a beautiful person in every way. I have delightful memories of her from our years at Jefferson High School. May the Lord comfort each family member as you grieve over her loss, and may your spirit be renewed in remembering that you WILL be together again. God bless you, Barbara Nichols Williams
