MILLER, ELIZABETH FOWLER Elizabeth Fowler Miller died on October 31, 2015. A lifelong resident of the Town of Guilford, her ancestors migrated from Derbyshire, England during the Puritan Great Migration (1620-1640). The family homestead, a Colonial Saltbox, stands at the NW corner of Route 80 and Long Hill Road, where her nephew, Stephen Everett Fowler lives today with his wife and family. Marzy, as she was affectionately called by her family and friends, was active for 80 years as a member of the North Guilford Congregational Church and also served as a deacon there. She was active in politics and served as Administrative Assistant to the Town Selectman in North Branford. She volunteered as a driver for the Red Cross for many years and the joke was that she was older than most of the folks she drove for. She loved Elvis Presley, Glenn Miller, The Beachboys and Betty Boop. Elizabeth married Henry S. Miller in April, 1945 in Washington, D.C. Upon her husband’s discharge from the US Navy, they resettled in Guilford. Their children are Joan Miller Peterson of Atlanta, and John Henry Miller of Branford. Along with her children, she leaves her beloved daughter-in-law, Heidi Ahlstrom Miller, a cherished granddaughter, Mia Elizabeth Park, a son-in-law Bryn Sterling Park and three delightful great-granddaughters, Ava, Ella and Brynna, as well as many nieces and nephews. She is pre-deceased by her husband, Henry, her parents, Luise and Harold Fowler and her brother, Arnold Fowler. Finally, grief never ends but it changes. It’s a passage, not a place to stay. Grief is not a sign of weakness or a lack of faith -- it’s the price of love. So let her name be spoken as it ever was with unbroken continuity. She is waiting for us, for an interval, somewhere very near. Funeral Services will be held on Tuesday, Nov. 10 at 11 am at the North Guilford Congregational Church, 159 Ledge Hill Rd., Guilford. Burial will follow in North Guilford Cemetery. Friends may call Monday, Nov. 9 from 5 – 7 pm at the Guilford Funeral Home, 115 Church St, Guilford.
