    My husband and I were welcomed to the Village grove neighborhood with flowers and a warm smile from Miriam. She became a friend and wonderful next door neighbor. I am so saddened to learn of her passing. Please know that we are available to help in any way. She will be missed ….. even our grandkids would go visit Miriam and say “she’s such a nice lady”.

    I have known Miriam for over twenty years and had the pleasure of being her hair stylist to a kind and loving person. We shared many stories and remember how over joyed she was when she became a grandmother. Miriam always looked forward to visiting with her granddaughter Vivian. She was dedicated to her volunteer work at the Wilmot Cancer center. Everyone at the DelMonte Salon knew her and enjoyed talking with her. She will be missed.
