MILLER, MARGARET FACKLER, 79, beloved wife of the late Robert C. Miller, peacefully passed away at home surrounded by her family on March 7 after a valiant battle with Alzheimer's disease.
She was born May 21, 1934 in Brandenburg KY, the daughter of the late Herbert and Viola Fackler. Margaret was a kind, gentle woman full of joy. She welcomed everyone with smiles,hugs, and kind words. Her home was always filled with family, friends, and neighborhood children all of whom she would cheerfully invite to the table to break bread. A woman of strong faith, her Catholic religion was very important to her as were her rosary beads, which were always close by. Margaret and Bob retired from their family business, Miller's Fancy Bath and Kitchen, and enjoyed many happy active years in Ft. Myers. She was adored and cherished as Nana to her grandchildren and great grandchildren. She leaves a legacy of love, faith in God, a strong work ethic, and gratitude for each day.
