Miriam loved to travel and had a life full of seeing many firsts, such as becoming a telephone operator at the dawn of that technology.  She witnessed the golden age of autos, space flights and computers.  When Miriam was in her 80s, she got her first laptop computer and cell phone.  Mom loved doing Meals on Wheels and visiting Shut-ins.  Her outgoing, vibrant personality made these enjoyable for her and those she visited.  Miriam was a voracious reader sometimes completing 2 large mysteries a week.  She had a wicked sense of humor and an unforgettable smile.  Miriam loved playing cards and was a fearsome opponent.  She enjoyed life. Her greatest joy was her family, her grandchildren and great grandchildren.  She was a master gardener, as evidenced by her flower beds.

My sympathy to the family. Miriam was an amazing and dear lady. She and Richard were a great addition to our St. Peter family and I always enjoyed visiting with her. May God bless you in the days ahead with peace, healing and fond memories.

My Sympathy to all of you! I am glad that I got to meet Miriam! She was a great lady! We had some fun times together this last year or so! She will be missed by many! Enjoy all of the great memories you all had with her!

Dear Mary Beth, Laura, and family. What a sweetheart your mom was! We would see her at Victoria's house in Loudonville at Christmastime, and always loved talking with her and Angie, in the little pack of appetizer-eaters in the kitchen! She was just the nicest person! We are very sorry that you have lost her now, but are glad that she got to live such a full, long life. We know you will all carry her and her wisdom and class, in your pockets always! Love, Susi and Jimmy

I am so sorry for the loss of your mom. May God wrap his loving arms around you and give you comfort and peace. Think of you often Amy. Hope you are doing well. My condolences to your family. Much love

So sorry to hear the passing of your mother. Richard and Miriam were our neighbors in loudonville. Keeping you all in our prayers

So sorry for your loss. Miriam and Richard were great people. Always enjoyed talking to her. May all your happy memories comfort you at this time.

I'm saddened by the news of my dear friend Miriam's passing. I will miss our visits and telephone calls. You will no longer have to come to our car to see my husband Walt. You probably have already seen him there in heaven.

I always enjoyed my visits with your Mother, as a friend from St. Peter Lutheran church. She is at peace now and that is what she wanted. Thoughts and prayers are with the family.

I absolutely adored your mother and will miss her deeply. My prayers are with all of you and I hope you can find some comfort in the fact that she is in a better place.

So sorry to hear of your moms passing. It's so hard to lose a mom and I did not know her but she sounds like she was a wonderful lady. Prayers to you and your family.
