AGE: 80 • West Brandywine, PA

Angela Jones Miller, age 80, of Freedom Village, West Brandywine, PA, passed away unexpectedly on Saturday, July 23, 2016 in Albuquerque, NM. She was the wife of Hugh Miller, with whom she shared 58 years of marriage. Born Caroline Iris Angela Jones on January 23, 1936, in Barcelona, Spain to Cecil and "Molly" Jones, she was a refugee from both the Spanish Civil War and then World War II. She eventually grew up in Mexico City. After attending boarding school in England with her cousins, she matriculated at Rice University in Houston, Texas, where she graduated Phi Beta Kappa as a Bachelor of Arts of Romance Languages. At Rice University she met and married her husband Hugh. She was a multicultural woman who spoke 3 languages with fluency, and she explored the world with her husband. Well mannered and exhibiting a quiet grace and English stoicism, she did not complain about the difficulties Parkinson's disease brought to her life, She delighted in being with her family, instituting a early family reunion tradition which has been enjoyed with anticipation.

In her youth, she exhibited athleticism taking delight in horseback riding, playing tennis, skiing and field hockey. As she matured, she continued physical competition by joining in golf and tennis tournaments and besting Hugh on Europe's famed slopes. She proudly used the term "Homemaker" as her listed occupation. She raised 4 children in Belgium from 1965 until 1979 mostly single handedly, as Hugh travelled extensively. She and Hugh eventually settled in southern Chester County, PA in 1979, a place she loved for its beauty and close friends. She was a member of the Kennett Square Country Club, Fieldstone Country Club and Christ Church in Wilmington, DE.

In addition to her husband, she is survived by two sons, Michael (Kari) and Brian (Ana Aragon de Miller); two daughters, Susan McGlynn (Ray) and Kathryn Arbabi (Roger); sister-in-law, Barbara Jones; nephew, Gavin Jones, nine grandchildren and several cousins.
