Sidney is survived by his son, Jason Rhyne Miller and wife Britney of Catawba; daughter, Amy Miller Childers and husband Garett; a brother, Ronnie Miller and wife Milledean; two sisters, Nancy “Nan” Bell and husband Jim, all of Taylorsville, and Carolyn Fox and husband Babe of Stony Point; and four grandchildren, Darcy and Carter Childers, and Maggie and Eleanor Miller.
A Service of Remembrance will be conducted at 11:00 a.m., Saturday, August 8, 2020 in the Chapman Funeral Home Chapel. Pastor Garett Childers will officiate. Burial will follow in the Stony Point Cemetery. There will be no formal visitation, although the body will lie-in-state Friday, August 7, 2020 from 2:00 – 6:00 p.m. at the funeral home.
