Mildred Mae Miller Barna, 101, of Greensburg, peacefully went to sleep in the arms of the Lord on Saturday, Dec. 4, 2021, at the St. Anne Home in Greensburg, where she resided for the last several years and was loved and embraced by all. Affectionately known as "Moog" or "Mickey," she was born Oct. 23, 1920, the only daughter of the late Jess and Alice Miller in Youngwood. She was a graduate of Youngwood High School, Class of 1938. Shortly after, she married John Barna in 1940, and together they built their family on a strong foundation of love. Mickey was an avid gardener, spending much of her younger years cultivating beautiful flower gardens. She worked at the Hempfield Tax Office, retiring from the Municipal Authority of Westmoreland County in 1990. A lifelong member of St. Paul's Lutheran Church, she carried a strong faith and commitment in God throughout her entire life. She will be deeply missed but forever remembered for her warm spirit, giving heart and sweet personality by her beloved children, Peter Barna and Jean (Carl) Eberline; her cherished two grandchildren; six great-grandchildren; and a brother, Dean Miller. In addition to her parents, she was predeceased by her four brothers, Glenn, Russell, Bob, Clair; and granddaughter, Kristin Eberline Shelek.
