Today, with heavy hearts, we buried our dear friend and colleague Ernestine Miller. In 2008, at the young age of 85, she began working in our Minster, Ohio Radio Maria office and, along with our many faithful volunteers, was instrumental in the successful operation of our Anna station, 88.7 FM WHJM. With a cheerful heart, she never hesitated to pitch in and help with whatever needed to be done, and with her extensive background in radio station ownership, kept things running smoothly and successfully. She truly shared the Light of Christ in all that she did and with all those she encountered. Ernestine was dearly loved by all of us and will be greatly missed! May her soul, and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace+++

‘Well done, my good and faithful servant. Since you were faithful in small matters, I will give you great responsibilities. Come, share your master's joy.' (Matthew 25:31-46)
