Frances (Fran) M. Miller

AGE: 91 • Wilmington

Frances (Fran) M. Miller, age 91, passed away peacefully on June 15, 2016 at Christiana Hospital Wilmington surrounded by her family. Born in Wilmington and a lifelong resident, she was the daughter of the late Walter and Blanche Formus.

For many years, Fran was a devoted stay at home Mom while raising her children. Later in life, she enjoyed returning to the work force as a sales clerk in the catalog department at JCPenney in Prices Corner, where she worked from 1972 to 1993 when she retired. Fran will best be remembered as a devoted Mommom and chief babysitter to her grandchildren. She was an avid sports fan, never missing her Grandsons' sporting events.

Fran was predeceased by her husband of 58 years, Thomas J. Miller, as well as her parents. She is survived by her sons, Thomas Miller (Cheryl), Gerald Miller, Matthew Miller and Terrance Miller; her daughter, Julie M. Mendola (Mark); her grandchildren, Ileah Miller and Thomas and Michael Mendola (Kate) and her great grandson, Quinn Mendola; as well as her sister, Ann Grezlikowski.

A Mass of Christian Burial was held on Saturday, June 18 at 10:30 AM at St. Elizabeth's Church, Cedar and South Clayton Streets, Wilmington, DE, where family and friends were invited to visit after 9:30 AM. Burial will be private.

The family would like to sincerely thank the caring nurses and support staff at Christiana Hospital Wilmington 6th floor stepdown and Heartland Hospice during her final days.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to St. Elizabeth Church, 809 S. Broom St., Wilmington, DE 19805.

To offer condolences,
