Aurora Skye Miller, 9

Aurora Skye Miller, 9, of Ocean View, Del., passed away and gained her heavenly throne on Sunday, Sept. 1, 2019, at Nemours/Alfred I duPont Hospital for Children in Wilmington, Del., after a gallant fight with neuroblastoma. She was born June 4, 2010, in Lewes, Del., to Lauren N. (Mitchell) Limmer and Daniel Miller. She was getting ready to start fourth grade at Lord Baltimore Elementary School in Ocean View, Del.

Aurora was a light who brought love and strength to her family as she fought her cancer for the last nine months. Through all the treatments, she never complained and was a true angel here on earth.

She loved ice skating and would frequent the Carousel Hotel skating rink in Ocean City, Md., every Sunday afternoon. She also loved swimming and enjoyed crabs so much that she became fond of Old Bay seasoning, which she added to everything she ate. Aurora also enjoyed playing with children younger than her and being their big sister. She will be remembered for her contagious smile that seemed to brighten up the room.

Aurora is survived by her mother, Lauren N. Limmer and her fiancé, Michael Conner; her father, Daniel Miller; her “mom mom,” Denise Limmer; an uncle, Vincent Wilson; her godfather and uncle, Francis Wilson; her godmother, Stacy Hastings; and a host of friends.

A visitation will be held from 9 to 11 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 21, 2019, at Melson Funeral Services, 38040 Muddy Neck Rd., Ocean View, Del. A Mass of Christian Burial will follow at noon that day at St. Luke Catholic Church, 9903 Coastal Highway, Ocean City, Md. Aurora loved bright colors, especially the color purple; so the family suggested that guests wear purple or another bright color. In lieu of flowers, the family suggested memorial contributions to St. Luke Catholic Church; 14401 Sinepuxent Ave.; Ocean City, MD 21842.
