The late Della Miller of Grantsville, Maryland was the wife of Mennonite bishop Ivan Miller in a community of farming families. I met the Millers when Phyllis and I stayed at their inn and enjoyed Della’s wonderful cooking.
Della agreed to pose for me only if, as a testament of her faith, she could be depicted with the 250 year old German bible her ancestors brought to America. I agreed, of course. Reverently, she turned the pages, absorbed in her meditation.
