Anne Miller BROOKLINE Anne Weston (Reading) Miller, 88, of Brookline and Duxbury, died January 10, 2010 at Brigham & Womens Hospital, Boston, after a short illness. Anne was born in Boston March 19, 1921 to William Ellis and Marjorie Elizabeth (Parks) Weston. She graduated in 1939 from the Brimmer School, Boston, in 1941 from Colby Junior (now Colby-Sawyer) College, New London, N.H., and in 1943 from Simmons College, Boston. Anne was the beloved wife of 2nd Lt. John Walter Reading, U.S. Air Force, killed in action in France February 26, 1945, and of Cecil Wentworth Miller, who died at their Brookline home February 4, 1981. She was the cherished mother of John Walter Reading of Brookline, William Raleigh Miller and his wife, Barbara (Spiess) Miller, of Marblehead, Bradford Austin Miller and his wife, Amy (Crouch) Miller, of Lexington, and Jeffrey Weston Miller of Brookline. She rejoiced in being a devoted grandmother for Meredith Anne Miller, Melissa Louise Miller and Tyson William Miller, all of Marblehead, and Eliza Macaulay Miller and Kira Weston Miller, both of Lexington. Anne was a caring sister-in-law of the late Franklin and Eleanor Miller of Wakefield, N.H., of Donald and Pamela Miller of Greenwich, Conn., of Russell and Dorothea Miller of New Smyrna Beach, Fla., and of Preston Johnson of Melrose, as well as being "Aunt Anne" to many nieces and nephews. She was a loving godmother to Meredith Anne Borden of Hoboken, N.J., and Dr. Kennon Miller of Providence, R.I. Anne was a public relations assistant for the USO in Boston during World War II and became a founding member of the Boston chapter of the Gold Star Wives. After the war, she worked for the Second Church in Boston and taught at the Brimmer & May School, where she eventually became a member of the alumni board and the board of trustees. For many years, Anne was a dedicated volunteer with Cub Scout Pack 258 and Boy Scout Troop 12 in Chestnut Hill, where she also served as a member of the Altar Guild and the Vestry of the Church of the Redeemer. Annes memorial service will be at the Church of Our Saviour, 25 Monmouth St., Brookline, at 11 a.m., Saturday, Feb. 6, 2010. A private burial will follow in the spring at Mayflower Cemetery, Duxbury, the resting place of Annes mother, father and second husband.
