Miriam was a loving mother and grandmother and was always very fair and generous to her children.  She loved watching game shows especially the Price is Right, playing scrabble, playing cards, and doing crossword and jigsaw puzzles.  She loved working outside in her yard and garden and took pride in keeping her property looking nice.  Arrangements are under the direction of Steven R.
