Marianne Elizabeth Miller, 63, of Nottingham, died peacefully in her sleep on Friday, Jan. 3, 2014.|
She was born on Nov. 21, 1950, in Philadelphia, daughter of the late Fred and Mary Schnell Young.
Marianne graduated from Archbishop Prendergast High School, Philadelphia, in 1968.
She married Thomas Miller on May 22, 1976, and had four daughters with him.
She was formerly employed by Wawa and was an operations manager for Land Hope Farms and CR Friendly's. She was also a real estate agent with RE/MAX before she retired.
She was the first woman president of the Oxford Lions Club.
She enjoyed reading, decorating, and crocheting, but her main passion in life was spending time with her family and friends.
There aren't enough words in the world to express what a wonderful woman she was and how deeply she will be missed. She was outgoing, passionate, hard-working, and so full of life. She loved being a mother and a "Gam-Gam".
She is survived by her husband, Tom; her daughters, Holly Jones, Allison Burgoyne, Jennifer Dunn and Kelly Miller; four grandchildren, Olivia and Nathan Burgoyne, and Audrey and Brenna Dunn; two sisters, Barbara Zorzulo and Lori Bush; and one brother, David Young.
