Margaret Louise Miller
September 9, 1925 – July 23, 2020
Margaret Louise Miller beloved wife of the late Roy L. Miller and mother of Margaret Ann Garteiser, Sharon Griffin, and Melinda Cardwell. The cherished grandmother of 7 grandchildren and 5 great grandchildren.
Ms. Margaret, born in Bratt, FL on September 9, 1925 and at age 21 she worked as a Clerk typist in the supply department at the Pensacola Naval Air Station.
She met and married the love of her life Roy Lee Miller on July 3, 1948. The two (as she would say) “were married for 62 good years and he treated me like a queen”. When married, she stayed home taking care of her hardworking husband and raising their three beautiful daughters. Margret loved to cook for her family, friends, church family and neighbors. All loved her cooking. She loved helping Roy harvest and can vegetables from the huge garden he had behind the Tidelands Service Station they managed on Jackson Street. Margaret would give away her prized ‘bread and butter’ pickles, creamed corn, fig preserves and jams every year to friends and family. She loved visiting and always welcomed others to eat and stay a while. An only child herself she was very close with and loved her Aunts, Uncles and cousins. She kept her mind sharp by doing word puzzles and reading the newspaper. She collected ceramic dolls, enjoyed sending and receiving greeting cards, gospel music and especially loved taking and showing pictures of her family. She especially loved her Lord and Savior Jesus and shared her faith with anyone who would listen. She was kind to all and generous to a fault and would never let a visitor never leave hungry.
The Word of God says to seek out wise council. Words of wisdom from Margaret Miller:
“A good philosophy, be glad you do what you do” (No Regrets)
“Do what your mind says” (Stay Focused)
“I’m cold as an iceberg” (Don’t be shy when you are cold)
“I’m glad you got to see me” (Make time for your family)
“I can’t wait to get some coffee”, “I only want a swig” (Keep the pot full and make enough for everyone)
Margaret was loved by all who knew her. She will be sorely missed and forever in our hearts. We know she is with her Lord and Savior rejoicing in Heaven and looking forward to welcoming us to join her for supper at her new home in Glory Land.
