His parents are former Rangely residents Ed and Nicole Miller. Ed and Nicole are retired and live in Kingman, Ariz. Stormie is a Rangely native. Her parents are Stewart and Laurie Osborn of Rangely. Both Ron and Stormie graduated from Rangely High School; Ron in 1984 and Stormie in 1987. Ron and Stormie were married in Rangely. Their 20th anniversary is Valentine’s Day 2012.
“Ron works for KR Fishing, an oilfield service that gets things out of wells and I’m the office manager for Professional Touch,” explained Stormie.
Stormie has two grown children. Her daughter Raquel Petersen, 23, is a student at Utah State University in Vernal, Utah. Raquel has a 4-year-old son named James. Stormie’s son Ryan Petersen, 21, lives in Rangely and works for SWABCO.
“We enjoy hunting and fishing and all the outdoor stuff and most of all spending time with our grandson James,” Stormie said.
“I like the people here and Rangely being a small town. Cities scare me. I don’t like large cities and the crowds. Rangely is a great place to live and raise your family,” Stormie added.
