Funeral Services for River Millner

There will be a Service of Death and Resurrection for River Millner this Friday, October 8, 2021 at 1 p.m. in the sanctuary. In case you can’t find the obituary online, I’m posting it below:

It is with deepest sorrow that we announce our beloved River Wilson Millner passed away on October 3, 2021. He was born in Abilene, KS to David and Chalsea Millner on January 7, 1995. 

He graduated from Abilene high school in 2013, and proudly worked as a chef de cuisine at the Salina Country Club.

River’s greatest passions were cooking, reading and skateboarding. Rain or shine, summer heat or icy winter days, you would find River skating in his free time. He was not only passionate about it, but incredibly talented as well.      

River possessed a kind and loving heart, and loved his family dearly. All who knew River soon learned that he was a gentle soul and a good friend.

He was preceded in death by his papa Ed Scheele, and Uncle Adam Millner. River is survived by his parents David Millner and Chalsea Millner; best friend and brother Killian Millner and wife Sheridan; sister Zoe Millner; Grandparents Shirley Wilson, Charlie Wilson, Dick and Marita Millner, Linda and Russell Neely, Aunt Jill and Uncle Steve Lang; Uncle Chad and Aunt Becky Wilson; cousins Olivia and Ava Crist; River is also survived by many more family members and friends who will miss his company and infectious smile.

A memorial service has been planned for Friday October 8th, 2021 at 1:00 PM at the first United Methodist Church in Abilene, with graveside services to follow at the Abilene Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests a donation to the River Millner Memorial Fund.  This service will follow Covid protocols.
