Lucy Miller was a known Lyme adovocate. She led a support group in Winchester, VA, and was a volunteer at

From Lucy’s Obit:

“Lucy Roughton Miller was born January 13, 1971 and was called home to be with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ on April 12, 2015. She was vibrant, spirited, passionate and accomplished. Lucy was very much loved by her husband, family, friends and colleagues and leaves an absence never to be replaced. She was loved by many and will be missed by all.
Upon graduating from high school, Lucy became and practiced cosmetology for several years. She then continued her education at George Mason University graduating with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Art History. Lucy was passionate about her gardening and her involvement with every aspect of life. She simply loved planting and nurturing her flowers. Everything had mystery and excitement which deserved attention. There were no boundaries to limit exploration.
Lucy suffered from chronic Lyme disease and MS. She was an active advocate and Board Member of the National Capitol Lyme Disease Association. She excelled in the midst of her physical storms and after a valiant struggle, she passed quietly at home.
We offer these words to Lucy to accompany her on her journey. God of compassion and strength, keep safe the soul of your servant Lucy, whose time of pain and fear is past. Send your healing to all those who love her. Meet their confusion with your peace and their sorrow with your consolation. May their grief find comfort in your care. May Lucy rest in peace and rise in glory.
Services private. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made in her honor to the National Capitol Lyme Disease Association.”

  1. I just saw this posting today. My 16 year old daughter, Abigail Joy Lopez (pictured) and I were close personal friends of Lucy. She was an ardent advocate for Lyme awareness and spoke to anyone, anytime about Lyme. A beautiful person, she was selfless, tireless and put the needs of others before her own. Lucy was a gardener, an athlete, animal/nature lover, an Art History major, a student of life, with many talents. Her friends were many and eclectic, just like her collections of antiques and flowers. She never had a complaint or a negative word and her ebullient personality was a light in darkness. We miss her deeply. A tee shirt was designed by myself and Allison Remick, funded by NatCapLyme, in her honor. Along with her picture and a green, heart-shaped ribbon, with the words, “For the Love of Lucy….Learn About Lyme” are the words, Education, Prevention, Cure at the top. She is my inimitable, irreplaceable hero! <3 xoxox <3

    1. Oops….in our grief, we did not see this soon enough to comment, so I commented above. Love you Lucy Miller!
      Your friends, and compatriots in the Lyme trenches, Bernadette and Abby Lopez

  2. I personally was not blessed to have known Lucy, but I’ve heard so many wonderful things about this precious woman. My thoughts and prayers go out to her family, friends, and Lyme family. God bless you!

  3. RIP Lucy. Thank you for your commitment to the Lyme Community and Nat Cap Lyme. You will be missed.

  4. I knew Lucy Miller, pre- and during her courageous fight. She remains in my heart and memory as one of the most courageous people I’ve had the honor to meet. Her loss is unacceptable! We, her survivors, must dedicate ourselves to making sure that no one, NO ONE.

  5. RIP LUCY. I have never met Lucy, but feel the deep loss to our huge lyme/co-infection community.

    What a beautiful woman she was in the photo above; so young and once vibrant.

    Lucy, give congress a big kick in the behind to get behind our 2 lyme disease bills in senate and house getting them approved for pres. obama’s signature.

    My sympathies to your family. When you are missing Lucy the most, please play a video of her hearing her voice/laughter and watching her mannerisms/gestures; it really helps.

    MAKE copies first and FILE away originals so they don’t get worn out by playing often.
