Photograph of Esther Catherine Foltz Miller.

Published in the Shenandoah Herald on June 26, 1969 as part of their "Country Kitchens" series.

Esther was born April 18, 1911 to Barney and Katie Virginia Foltz. She married Raymond F. Miller on February 23, 1929 in Hagerstown Maryland.

Esther lived in Edinburg Virginia. She worked with her husband in the family's printing business. Her primary role was as bookkeeper, but she also ran the printing press.

Outside the printing shop which opened in 1955, Esther was a cafeteria worker at the Edinburg School. She started as a cook and retired as the kitchen manager in 1967. She observed "for some children the meal at school was the only meal they had the entire day."

Esther and her husband lived on the east side of Edinburg. There they raised their niece Sandra Orndorff.

Esther died in 1990 and is buried at Cedarwood Cemetery.
