Sam Ella was born on October 15, 1942 to Arwilda and Wilford, Sr which both has preceded her in death; one daughter, Cynthia Miller preceded her in death. Sam Ella was born in Clarendon, AR.

Sam Ella was the oldest of six children. Three siblings have preceded her in death (Wilford Miller Jr, Wilson Mae Moore, and Lorraine Butler). Sam Ella leaves to cherish her memories two siblings, Chester Lee Miller Sr. of Columbus, OH and Maurice Miller of Nashville, TN. A host of nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends will forever remember her smile and loving character.

Samella confessed her life at an early age at Liberty Bethlehem M.B. Church, Holly Grove, AR. Sam Ella was a very special person that loved being around family. She loved to dance at the family gatherings. She did not have a care in the world, always a quiet-spirited person. She loved Road Trips, Coloring Books, Westerns, Sports, going to the Movies, her SPA days and fixing on large count Puzzles. She would assist her mother (Arwilda) with the babysitter responsibilities throughout her life. As her mother would be dealing with the aging aspects of life, Sam Ella would be there to encourage and motivate her with the willingness to assist her. Sam Ella just loved everyone regardless of the first-time meeting or continuous engagements. She was warm, genuine, and generous. She will be greatly missed and loved forever. Rest Well and you will always be a special person in this family.
