Read more about the life story of Miriam and share your memory.
87, of Delray Beach, Florida, was called to her lord on Monday, September 11, 2023.

It truly was the happiest place on earth for her. She also loved to travel and never missed an opportunity to go with the girls to Mexico or on a cruise.
She was so happy to finally meet her great grandsons Ollie and Eddie (who live in Australia) this past Christmas.
Miriam was predeceased by her husband Bob, son Michael, parents Joseph and Adelaide and sisters, June, Diana, Denise and LeeAnn. Miriam is survived by her son Robert (Deborah) and daughter Cheryl (Robert), brothers, Bill (Jeanette), Ron (Jane). Her six grandchildren, Matthew, Nicole, Meghan, Bobby, Shelby and Avery will always remember a grandma that showed up for all their events, lots of laughter, her generosity and all the wonderful trips she took them on.
