Ielean spent her childhood with her parents Lloyd and Agnes Miller in Crabtree. She attended school there through the eighth grade then attended Albany Union High School from which she graduated in 1963. Ielean worked for the Oregon Department of Justice for several years before retiring to her home in Pacific City with Larry. She was an avid fisher woman, outdoors person and conservationist as well as being very involved in local and county politics and activities.

A celebration of life is planned to be held in Pacific City later in the spring. Donations to your favorite charity in Ielean’s name would be welcomed by the family.
