She was born in Cleveland on September 10, 1926.  She is preceded in death by her first husband, Donald O’Brien, and her second husband, Pete Miller.  She is also preceded in death by her granddaughter, Kathryn O’Brien formerly of Bainbridge.  She is survived by her sons, Thomas (Sheri) of Bainbridge, and David of Chesterland, her grandchildren, Thomas II of Cleveland Hts. and Anna of New York City and great grandchildren, William and Natalie O’Brien of Austin, Texas.  She was very proud and loving of her O’Brien family and of her extended Miller family.
