Shelly Miller (—~2078) was the matriarch of the Miller family.
Background[edit | edit source]
Shelly Miller was the wife of John Miller – proprietor of Big John's Salvage – and mother of both Shane and Kimmy Miller. Seeing the current geopolitical situation her husband decided to create a safe haven for his family to ride out an ever more likely nuclear Armageddon. By October 2nd, 2076 he finished sealing up the cracks and made sure the pipes were clamped tight, ensuring it as airtight. At this time he and his wife debated if they should start telling their children about the shelter just in case. It was by November 28th, 2076 that they believed that he fixed the generator/ventilation issues, and all the supplies are stocked and ready. By this time they did decide to teach their children about the shelter. Deciding to teach them in rhyme so it would stick; "In the tipped over train, behind dad's shop. Climb up above and drop in the top."
Almost a full year later they did have to use the shelter. As the sirens blared they made it inside, for a time everything was fine. Until about the time they ran out of foodstuffs. It was then that they would discover that the problems with ventilation were not fixed. Running out of air they would make a distress call, first to Chuck then to anyone who would come. No one would come, unbeknownst to them, their signal was too weak, as Relay tower 0SC-527 was disengaged. Their children would die first and be buried in the graves past the trailer door. Both she and John would suffocate on the sleeping bag together.
