MRS. LAURA E. MILLER, D. O. In personality and technical training Doctor Miller is specially well qualified for the practice of her chosen profession and has made a record of success as a representative of Osteopathic science and practice in Dallas County, where she maintains her home and professional headquarters at Adel, the county seat.
Doctor Miller was born in Mercer County, Missouri, January 31, 1886, and is a daughter of Tipton and Margaret (King) Evans, both of whom were born and reared in Missouri, where the father gave the greater part of his active life to farm enterprise, his death having occurred at Ravanna, that state, in 1898, and his widow being still a resident of that place.
In the public schools of her native state Doctor Miller continued her studies until she was graduated in the high school at Ravanna, and in 1914 she entered the Still College of Osteopathy, Des Moines, Iowa, in which institution she was graduated May 23, 1918, the following month having marked her initiation of the practice of her profession at Adel, where she has since remained and where she has won marked success and prestige in service as a skilled Osteopathic physician and surgeon.
June 18, 1926, was the date that recorded the marriage of David H. Miller to Dr. Laura E. Evans, but the gracious marital bonds were soon severed, for the death of Mr. Miller occurred January 20, 1927, in Des Moines, where he was in attendance at the session of the Iowa Legislature, he having shortly before been elected representative of Dallas County in the Lower House of the Legislature. Mr. Miller was a lawyer of distinctive ability and had been engaged in the practice of his profession at Adel a number of years prior to his death.
Doctor Miller has membership in the Iowa State Osteopathic Association and the National Osteopathic Association, her religious faith is that of the Christian Church, she is a popular member of the Atlas Club in her home city, and is affiliated with the woman's sorority of the Osteopathic profession.
