Service Friday For Donna Miller Who Died Mon.

Mrs. Donald (Donna Keller) Miller, 60, was found dead Tuesday morning from an apparent self-inflicted gun shot wound. Funeral service will be held at Peet Mortuary in Lusk Friday afternoon at 2:00.

Mrs. Keller was to have appeared in court in Douglas Tuesday morning at 9:00, and Mrs. Rose Martin who was driving her to Douglas went to her home shortly after 6:00 to help her get ready to go.

After several futile attempts to arouse Mrs. Miller at 7:10 Mrs. Martin telephoned Sheriff Harold Rogers who entered the locked home through a window. He found the body lying on the bedroom floor. Evidence was that she had been sitting on a chair, and fell to the floor, he said. Assisting with the investigation were County Attorney W. A. Taylor, and Chief of Police Willard Frye.

Rogers said, "We don't feel there is any doubt, but that the shot was self-inflicted, and there will no inquest."

Mr. Miller was in Douglas the night of her death. Mrs. Miller's only son, Kenny Keller is stationed in Fort Hood, Texas.
