Memories Timeline


  1. Miriam lived at Shiloh for 8 yrs with her friends Melody and Debbie. They were like sisters. We were sad when she moved under a cloud of misinformation to the family. We loved her and cared for her. She was very unique. We have many memories to hold dear. She ate a BLT sandwich everyday. She rearranged her furniture often. She was very neat and bossy in a cute way . She loved chocolate cream pie. Eating was probably her favorite thing to do and going anywhere. We will create a picture memorial for her at Shiloh and keep it on the wall forever. she will always be remembered there.

  2. Dear Ira and Bev, Larry and I were so sorry to learn of your loss. We really did not know Miriam well, but our hearts are with you now. I think of your both so often and remember so well your mother and father and the many times we shared in your home. It would be great to hear from you and to “catch up”. As always, Barbara

  3. I worked at Shiloh Apts where Miriam resided..She only had certain people she would be close to..I was lucky to be one of them..I worked alot of midnight shifts..and when it would storm..Miriam would come to the community room where I was working and slept where she would feel safe..Our supervisor came to me one time and asked if I ever heard any loud noises upstairs from the office at night.. I said no.. apparently Miriam would rearrange her apt furniture during the night.. I laughed everytime someone said she moved stuff again.. and said..”Oh she is playing “UHaul” again..lol..Miriam was a joy to me and many others..just little things she would do or say…I also work at the nursing home where she was placed after her health failed…I would be there once a week to do hair..always stopped to see her and give her a kiss on the forehead even though she didnt know me anymore.. I will always have fond memories of her and will cherish them…She was one of a kind…I will miss her much..
