TRIBUTES have been paid to a well-known Woodbury woman who has died.

Nora Miller, 88, died at her home, Thorns Cottage, last week.

She leaves her son, Bob, three grandchildren, Hayley, Kevin, Lee and four great grandchildren, Amber, Finley, Matthew and Scarlet.

Her funeral service will take place next Thursday, February 11 at Exeter Crematorium. Nora's late husband, Bob Miller, died last August, aged 90.

Son Bob said: "She was a loving, all-round family woman and the last of the Miller family from that generation."

Bob joked: "Whenever people would ask where Nora was, we would reply by saying there is no need to look that far as she was always in the kitchen cooking meals.

"She adored my father. From the time when she was 18-years-old through to when she died at 88, her life revolved around him. She knew nothing else."

"She would go and watch Bob play skittles, in the British Legion League, and cricket, and would make teas with all the other wifes."

Like his father, although his mum was born in Exeter, he said she was a Woodbury woman through and through.

A bench will be installed in the grounds of Woodbury Cricket Club this spring in memory of both Bob and Nora's lives.
