Lyndsei-Nicole Summer "Sunny Girl" Miller

Lyndsei-Nicole Summer Miller was born in Monroe on July 22, 1982.   She was one of three children born from the union of Norman and Norma (Miller) Beamer.   Lyndsei-Nicole attended Townsite Elementary and Monroe High School.   She was outgoing with a warm and loving smile.   Lyndsei was gifted with a beautiful voice, and with a love for singing participated in choir during high school.   She graduated with the Class of 2000.

For many years, Lyndsei, was employed as a cashier for the Sunoco Gas Station on Telegraph Road.   Most recently, she served in the Deli Department and as a Cashier for Partyville.  

Lyndsei had shared the last thirteen years of her life with Jeffery Sherman Tuttle Jr.   With open arms she stepped in and was a wonderful mother to Jeff’s son, Jeffery III, lovingly known as Jeffy.   She raised him as her own, becoming active within the autism community, and the three of them were homebodies having an inseparable bond.   The couple was joined in marriage on September 16, 2017.  

Lyndsei had a special place in her heart for her nieces and nephews.   She was often referred to as the “crying aunt”, since she usually became quite emotional when discussing how proud she was of their accomplishments.   Lyndsei will certainly be remembered for innocence and her inability to tell a lie.
