Anita Joan Beilke Miller
Freeland, Washington
September 23, 1920 – November 2, 2017
Late on the evening of
November 2, 2017, Anita
Joan Beilke Miller passed
away peacefully at the age
of 97. She was surrounded
by family at her home in
Freeland, Washington.
Anita was born in Pend-
leton, Oregon, on September
23, 1920, to Herman and
Louise Beilke of rural
Pendleton. As a youngster,
Anita worked alongside her
father in his farm and dairy
operation. She first attended
school at “Four Corners”
schoolhouse at the intersec-
tion of Shaw and School-
house roads. The family
soon moved to lower McKay
Creek below the reservoir
and she attended school on
the corner of US 395-S and
County Road 1086 and later
attended school in Nolin. She
graduated from Pendleton
High School and studied at
a small business college in
Pendleton until 1941.
Anita always had horses
to ride. With cousins she rode
horses, hunted rattlesnakes,
and rode in the Westward
Ho! Parade. Using mostly
draft horses, Anita would
ride one while leading the
others to move the horses
from McKay Creek to Nolin
and back.
While in high school,
Anita met Joseph Miller
while on the school bus
and they later married on
December 29, 1941, in
Pendleton. They lived on
the Miller Ranch on McKay
Creek until Joe entered
the Navy Seabees in 1942.
While Joe was deployed,
Anita worked for Graham
Insurance Agency, Air Corp
Supply and Pendleton Air
Base, as an accountant’s
assistant, and at School
District #16.
At the end of WWII, Anita
and Joe returned to farming
and ranching, moving to
the house on Little McKay
Creek in 1950. She raised
her children and assisted in
ranch operations: herding
and hauling cattle, driving
wheat truck, and running the
flood irrigation operation in
Boardman, Oregon.
Anita delighted in her
children, grandchildren, and
enjoyed hosting them at the
ranch and provided inter-
esting activities, delicious
food and hospitality. She
enjoyed her many friends
with visits, dinners and
playing bridge.
In the fall of 2014, Anita
and Joe retired their ranch
in Pilot Rock and moved to
Whidbey Island, Washington,
to be near their son Don and
family. During her time on
Whidbey, she made many
friends, supported numerous
charities, found a church
family at Trinity Lutheran,
and enjoyed ice cream while
waiting for the ferry.
Anita is preceded in death
by Joe, her husband of 73
years, and parents Herman
and Louise Beilke of McKay
Creek, Pendleton, Oregon.
Anita is survived by chil-
dren Marilyn Miller and Don
(Linda) Miller; grandchildren
Ben (Rebecca) Armstrong,
and Chelsea Miller; and
great-grandchildren Natalie
and Spencer Armstrong
and JamiZen Miller. Her
additional family included
grandchildren Brieann (Jake)
Zourkos, Layel Moore and
great-grandchildren Madison
and Brhody Zourkos.
