Carol Stillwell was born on May 3, 1955, to Harold & Edna Stillwell in Davenport, Iowa. Carol attended public schools in Davenport, graduating from Davenport West High School in 1973. Carol received her accounting degree from American Institute of Commerce and worked many years with Bituminous Insurance in Rock Island, Il.

On September 30, 1978, Carol married Matthew Miller in Davenport. To this marriage four children were born: Kurtus, Christena, Melissa and Sara. Carol was a stay-at-home mom, and loved children and devoted many years to providing child daycare for many families.

Carol was an integral part of husband, Matt’s call to ordained ministry. Together they, and their family, served 33+ years across churches in Iowa. Together they retired in 2021 to West Des Moines.
