Margaret Mary Miller

March 21, 1921 - June 16, 2021

Margaret Mary Miller (nee Mahon), 100, of Norfolk, Virginia, entered eternal rest on June 16, 2021 at Our Lady of Perpetual Help. Born in Norfolk, Virginia, she was the loving daughter of the late Margaret Helen (Kelly) and John Sheridan Mahon, Sr. Margaret was the loving wife of the late Lionel Newby Miller for over 55 years.

Margaret, lovingly known as Aunt Tootsie, was a woman of great faith who prayed daily and was a long-time member of St. Gregory the Great Catholic Church. She was an excellent cook and enjoyed preparing the holiday dinners for her family. In her earlier days, she was an accomplished seamstress and knitter who often made clothes for herself and members of her family.

In addition to her parents and husband, she was predeceased by her siblings, Helen McGuan, Theresa Mahon, Evelyn Horton, and John S. Mahon, Jr. She is survived by her sister-in-law, Frances Mahon. She was the treasured aunt of John Mahon III, James Mahon, Elizabeth Bailey, Michael Hogan, Margaret Hooper, Sr., Allyn Marie Horton, SSND, Albert Horton, Richard Horton, Nancy Canu, and Keith Horton, as well as many grand nieces and nephews.
