Marjorie L. (“Midge”) Miller

Marjorie L. ("Midge") Miller, a native of Ellwood City, Pa., who has resided with her daughter and son-in-law, Jo Ann and Jim Oxsen in Kingman since 2003, marked her 100th birthday Sept. 5 with a birthday dinner celebration at Golden Corral Restaurant, along with family and friends. Born Sept. 5, 1910, in Ellwood City to James A. and Mary Edna Liebendorfer, Midge and her late husband, Harry C. Miller, formerly owned Miller's Dairy Store and later Miller's Gift Shop in Ellwood City. Both Midge and Harry were avid golfers and enjoyed playing bridge and other card games with their friends. A gifted musician, after only six months of piano lessons as a child, Midge learned to play piano by ear, and as a young adult, accompanied silent movies shown in Ellwood City theaters. Through the years she continued playing piano for sing-alongs with family and friends. After Jo Ann moved to Southern California in 1971, avid travelers Midge and Harry drove out to visit her and her family 18 times over the ensuing 20 years. A member of Christ Presbyterian Church since 1949, she retains her membership (across the miles) to this day.
