Not sure what to say?

Miriam was a great example of how to balance family, career, community activism, and friendships! She will be missed!

So sorry to hear of your mom's passing. She was such a nice woman. She was a substitute teacher for a couple of my classes. Mostly I remember her around Star Lake and "The Half T Dock". Our thoughts & prayers to all of her family.

Teri and I are so thankful to have met Miriam many years ago. We will always cherish the memories of our awesome summer afternoons at the lake. Miriam was always so humble and welcoming, and her leadership skills set a great example for all of us to follow. With you as the matriarch, it's no surprise that your entire family is so awesome! Rest in peace Miriam, thank you for being such a wonderful influence for us all.

Thank you to a wonderful LWV mentor and friend for your clear and wise guidance for more than 30 years. You will be missed.
