Obituary for Marie E. (Pugliese) "Happy" Miller

Marie Elizabeth (Pugliese) "Happy" Miller, 89, of Silvertone Lane, East Kingston died Wednesday, June 26, 2019 at Ten Broeck Center.

She was born in East Kingston, NY on August 18th, 1929, a daughter of the late Charles and Mary (Mele) Pugliese. She was raised in East Kingston, lived in Poughkeepsie for 16 years, then returned to East Kingston.

Marie was employed with Jacobson's Shirt Factory, as an assembler for IBM Kingston, and then as a cable winder for J. L. Petz in Poughkeepsie.

A longtime parishioner of St. Colman's Church and a member of AARP, Marie was very fond of her family and enjoyed reading romantic novels, gardening, painting and anything she could accomplish.

Marie is survived by her daughter, Cheryl Miller of Port Ewen, one stepson, Glenn Miller, very dear friend Barbara Jean and Joe Tiano, and Darlene and Nancy from U.C. Office for the Aging. Many nieces and nephews also survive.

She is predeceased by six brothers Russell, Frank, Michael, Anthony, Charles and John Pugliese and three sisters, Josephine Tiano, Irma Bolson and Margaret Panessa, and dear friend Jack DeWitt.

The Gilpatric-VanVliet Funeral Home, 339 Broadway, Ulster Park, is entrusted with the care and funeral arrangements for Marie. In following Marie's preplanned wishes, there are no calling hours or procession to church.

The Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 10:00 am Saturday, June 29, 2019 at St. Colman's Church, East Kingston. Burial will follow at St. Mary's Cemetery.
