  • To all Marie’s daughters,
    Charlie and I are so sorry for your loss. We both have many fond memories of both your parents and we were especially moved when Marie came to the calling hours when Kathleen passed away.

  • I so admired Maria, going to church with her, seeing her beautiful flower gardens, and admiring her friendship with my mom and dad! Love her dearly and feel so blessed to know her! Imagine the reunion celebration in Heaven! God bless her family!

  • We are so sorry for your loss. Your Mom was ready to move on and see your Dad in heaven. She lived a good life…and had four beautiful daughters that loved her. All of you have been a blessing to my Dad (John Miller). He will miss all of you and all your great puzzel help.

    Sending prayers and sincere sympathy………

  • I am sending all of you my deepest condolences upon the loss of your mother, Maria. It’s been so many years since I’ve seen any of you but want you to know that my thoughts and prayers are with you!

  • I am sending my deepest condolences to all of Maria’s family & friends. Maria was a beautiful lady who I admired very much. We worked together at the laundry off of Wooster Rd. by the Seventh Day Adventist School a little over 20 years ago. She saved me one morning at work when I got drenched by a dropped water hose as she grabbed a pair of scrubs for me to wear while she dried my clothes for me. I always loved speaking with her during our lunch breaks and hearing the wisdom of her advice. She was a great lady with a heart of gold.

  • Dear Olgie, Nina, Galina , and Tamara, thinking of you as I remember your mom, trying to give her a ride from church when it was raining, her asking for prayer for you when you were coming home visiting , and her smile as she sat in the back pew. My prayers for comfort. Susan

  • Maria was one of my best friends and I will miss her dearly. She was not only a true friend but an outstanding mother and wife. She is indeed a loss not only to all of us but to humanity. It diminishes us all far more than we could have ever known. May she and her beloved Boris rest in peace for ever. Their love has transcended both time and their existence upon this earth. Until we see each other again.
    Your friend,
    Gunda Boyd
