Miriam Adina Miklas Notice


Miriam Adina Miklas, 68, recently of Lancaster, PA, went to be with the Lord on Tuesday, September 15. She was born in Baltimore, Maryland, on August 23, 1947, to the late John and Mildred (Appel) Miklas. After graduating from Perry Hall High School in 1966 and taking a business course, she worked for the city of Baltimore in Maryland for 30 years. Adina, as she was known to family and friends, had fond memories of her trips to Europe, Mexico and Israel where she enjoyed visiting missionaries and experiencing other cultures. A favorite destination was Holland where she toured the home of Corrie Ten Boom, Holocaust survivor and author of the biography The Hiding Place. After her retirement, Adina moved to Pennsylvania to be closer to family and faithfully volunteered at Tel Hai Retirement Homes for several years. She later moved to Calvary Fellowship Homes in Lancaster, PA, where she established meaningful relationships and impacted the lives of many there. One resident summed it up well. "She just had the gift of helps, helping anyone she could with a ready smile." Although raised in a Christian home, she recognized that she needed to accept the Lord as her personal Savior. She attended Perry Hall Baptist Church in Perry Hall, MD, throughout most of her life, serving for many years with the children's ministry. A woman of simple faith, Adina's first response when troubled was to take the problem to the Lord in prayer. It was this faith that carried her through the ultimate challenge of a diagnosis of terminal cancer with such grace, beauty and acceptance. Adina is survived by a brother David Miklas, husband of Mary Lou (Wilkes Barre, Pa), two nephews, Jonathan Miklas (Christine) and Joel Miklas (Rachel) both of Denver, PA; and three nieces, Grace Krug (Tom) of Montana, Ruth Ritter (Tim) of South Carolina, and Rebecca Burke (Eric) of Coatesville, PA, as well as 21 grandnieces and nephews. A Graveside Service will be at Gardens of Faith Memorial Gardens in Baltimore, MD, on Saturday, September 26 at 11 am. Memorial contributions may be made to Hospice & Community Care of Mt. Joy, 4075 Old Harrisburg Pike, Mt Joy, PA 17552 or Calvary Fellowship Homes, 502 Elizabeth Drive, Lancaster, PA 17601.
