Carma Sue Miletta passed away peacefully, surrounded by family, on March 3, 2017. “Sue,” as she was known, was born August 30, 1934 in Des Moines, Iowa to Winnett and Beulah Conrad. After graduating from North Salem High School, Sue met the love of her life, Roy Miletta. They were married on December 8, 1952 and had four children: David, Lisa (Martinmaas), Larry, and Lora. The family moved to Keizer in 1959. After raising her family, Sue worked in food service for Salem-Keizer School District at McNary High School and Kennedy Elementary. After retiring from the school district, she worked for the Oregon State Fair (Poultry Building), eventually becoming superintendent. Sue was a long-time volunteer for the Keizer Heritage Foundation. She loved to read, travel, paint with watercolors, and cheer on the Keizer Volcanoes–she was a season ticket holder for many years. Sue’s positivity, humor, and smile will be greatly missed by everyone who knew her.
Sue leaves behind her children, seven grandchildren, 13 great grandchildren, and one great-great grandchild. She is also survived by her brother, Jay Conrad. Sue was preceded in death by her husband, Roy, and son Larry Miletta.
