Born July 11, 1928, in Jamestown, she was a daughter of the late Willie Claude and Bertha Coffey Blakely. Irene was a member of New Victory Baptist Church.

With the help of her granddaughter, Holly, Irene passed the exams and got her driver's license at the age of sixty-six.
Survivors include a son, Wendell (and Carolyn) Miller, of Russell Springs; a daughter, Brenda (and Terry) Wilson, of Bronston; a sister-in-law, Louise Wooten, of Russell Springs; four grandchildren, Holly Jo (and Eric) Barnes, Travis Wilson, Lauren Wilson, and Alex (and Kisha) Miller; a step-grandson, Joey (and Jill) Wilson; five great-grandchildren, Ian Barnes, Mason Wilson, Maddox Wilson, Madelyn Miller, and Addison Miller; three step great-grandchildren, Cloe Wilson, Cayden Wilson, and Kelton Wilson; as well as several special people who were her caregivers over the last few years.
In addition to her parents, Irene was preceded in death by husband of forty-three years, Joe Russell Miller; three brothers, Oral Blakey, Earl Blakey, and Orvin Blakey; and a sister, Helen Blakey Lawless.
Pall bearers will be Terry Wilson, Alex Miller, Keith Railsback, Ian Barnes, Mitchell Lawless, and Eric Barnes.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorial contributions to the Dixon Cemetery Fund, c/o Roger Garner, 1020 Hwy 1058, Jamestown, KY, 42629.
