Aunt Marie will be missed. I wish I could've had the opportunity to know her more. From everything I've seen and heard, I know she was such an amazing person. Thinking and praying for Aunt Marie and the family. Daniel Izquierdo - Mark Bruno's son.

She was a teacher of mine, then met her 25 some odd years later in my nursing career. I always looked foward to seeing you. Your kindness touched my heart, your encouragement to push and go further in education and life made an impression on my heart. You have made an impression on my soul. The way u would look at me and smile when i called you Mrs. Miller. Oh Marie, I will miss you, I will miss your hugs, I love you, Mrs. Miller....I will always remeber you. I was blessed to have a angel by the name of marie touch my life.

My good friend Janice's mom, my neighbor, my religion teacher and dear friend. God blessed us with knowing Mrs. Miller. She was of the great generation of Americans. She was always kind, generous and knew what was important in life.

Out sweet Great Grandma. We will miss you so much! She was a strong and loving person. Always jocking and laughing, being positive. We will love you forever!

Beautiful description above... Some details of which are new to me, but of which I am not surprised. She was a woman who feared the Lord, therefore her worth is far above rubies... She is rightly praised. Goodbye for now my dear lady, precious Aunt and sister in Christ!

Susan Greco, niece Feb 3 2015 12:00 AM

Aunt Marie, I think of you from far away Arizona! I miss her very much, and a lot of humors going on in past since I was born. I never forget her and hopefully see her in heaven. She cared about me and showed me a lot spirit way! I dearly love her very much!

Mark Bruno Feb 3 2015 12:00 AM

Marie was a wonderful person who will be dearly missed by all who knew her.
