Marguerite Miller (Burke) 48
September 10, 2013
Marguerite died peacefully on Tuesday, September, 10, 2013 after a courageous battle with ovarian cancer.
Marguerite handled her illness with swan-like grace and unflinching determination. Even in times of pain she never once complained. Her outward sense of calm in the face of her greatest battle serves as a lesson to all of us that you need not let your battle define who you are.
Marguerite was a devoted wife and mother, and if you were lucky enough to call her a friend, a truer one could not be had.
Marguerite is survived by her loving husband John and their two children Kayla and Jim, as well as her parents Jim and Judy Burke. She is pre-deceased by her sister, Dorothy (Andy), and also survived by her sister Gina (Paul) Kuzemka, her brothers, Jim (Lori) and Ray (Danielle) Burke, grandfather Thomas J. Hickey Sr. and adoring nephews, Kevin, Jackson, RJ, Cash, Ryker and Luke, and many other relatives and friends.
A Celebration of Life Mass at St. Paul Catholic Church in St. Petersburg, Florida on Saturday, September 21, 2013 at 12 noon.
