Mrs. Alice Scoville Miller

"These are her fruits, kindness and gentleness
And gratefully we take them at her hands;
Patience she has and pity for distress,
And love that understnds."

Alice Scoville Miller was born at Coleta, Ill., the daughter of Ira Scoville, a native of Erie, Pa., and Mary J. Bushnell, who was born at Hillsdale, N. Y.  When a child her parents came to Vinton, later moving to Grundy Center and in 1898 moved to Cedar Rapids, which is still her home.  She was graduated from the Vinton high school and from Tilford Academy.  She also attended Cornell College, and later took a course in a business college.  On Sept. 30, 1903, she was married to Harry Miller, who is a successful real estate dealer in Cedar Rapids.  His parents, Leslie Miller and Caroline McKee Miller, were pioneers, and prominent citizens of Vinton, Iowa.  Mrs. Miller is a member of St. Paul's Methodist Episcopal church.  She is a member of Malta chapter O. E. S.  She is a member of the P. E. O. sisterhood and is one of the prominent P. E. O's. of the Iowa Grand Chapter, having served as second vice-president 1911-'12, and as state president 1912-'13.  She is now a member of the Board of Trustees governing the P. E. O. Record, which is the official magazine of the sisterhood.  The Board of Trustees are by appointment of the Supreme Chapter.  In whatsoever capacity Mrs. Miller has served, she has been efficient and gracious and has merited all the honors which she has received.  She has many times appeared on the program of the state and national conventions.  She is a very attractive woman, one of great kindness of heart, and gentleness of spirit and yet a woman of strong character.
