  1. I was a student of Mrs Miller’s in the late 1960’s. She was a wonderful teacher and while I wasn’t a particularly strong English or Speech class student, I appreciate that as a teacher she did things in class that motivated me to think. In retrospect, learning to diagram a sentence in 7th grade helped me develop thinking and reasoning skills that I used my entire life. Thank you Mrs Miller.

  2. Dear Angie, Matt, and family,
    Marie was such a dear friend. I will always cherish the time we spent at ball games, fun at fish fries, and numerous adventures. She was like an older sister to me when I first moved to Pueblo. Your parents will always have a special place in my heart. I know she will greatly missed.
    My prayers are with you at this time.

  3. Angie and family,
    I’m sorry to learn of Marie’s passing! I have such fond memories of her at fish fries, graduation parties, and celebrating anniversaries. Her German chocolate cake was always my favorite.
    I can only imagine your dad and mom are now doing the polka in heaven. They definitely have a special love.
    You are in my prayers and may the Lord provide you comfort in the year to come.

  4. Ange and family,
    We’re going to miss your mom and dad. We were such good friends for many years. We know you’ll miss your mom very much. May the Lord give you peace and comfort. We love you, Roger and Kathy Samuels

  5. Sending our sympathy, love and prayers. Aunt Marie was such a kind and caring person, loved by all. We will truly miss her but know she is reunited with the love of her life and many others that will welcome her with open arms!

  6. I was so sorry to hear of Marie’s passing. I enjoyed working with Marie at Freed and and attending Holy Family Church. She was a wonderful person and excellent teacher, she will be missed! In my prayers!

  7. Matt & Angie,
    My condolences to you and your family. Sending love and comfort to you guys. You are in our prayers.

    The Archuletta Family.

  8. Angela and family,
    I offer my sincere condolences on the loss of your Mom. My heart sank when I saw that she had passed. I live on the 1900 block of Hollywood and when I was still working I’d walk every morning about 5 a.m. I’d always meet your Mom and Dad walking on the opposite side of the street from me. We would always talk. We also knew each other from Holy Family Church. Your parents were such wonderful people! With your Dads passing I often wondered how Marie was since I never saw her again. I sure missed seeing her. A lovely couple reunited in God’s loving hands! May she rest peacefully with your Dad and brother.

  9. I was very sorry to learn of Marie’s passing. She was a great mentor to me when I first started teaching at Centennial, and she was at Freed. She gave me valuable lessons on how to be a speech teacher. It was very comforting to know someone else from Aguilar was teaching in Pueblo. Her sister Angela was also a great mentor to me in high school. I am very sorry for your loss. May God grant that Marie rest in peace.

  10. Deepest condolences from all of us at Dr. Matt Philson’s office, especially me…..she was my teacher, my patient and my friend, and I loved her dearly. Thoughts and prayers to Angie and the kids and the whole family.

  11. Christine Brabb,
    I’m so sorry to hear of your sister’s passing. I miss seeing you and still remember
    the wonderful times of workout/coffee clutch at St Mary’s Hspt’l.

  12. What a fabulous educator and classy woman. So proud to say I was her student. She challenged and inspired, encouraging us to reach great heights and to be strong communicators and thinkers. She ignited in me a deep love of literature and writing.
    I am saddened to learn of her passing and offer condolences to the family.

  13. I was blessed to have Mrs. Miller as one of my Freed Middle School teachers during the mid 70’s. She was very kind and caring to all of her students.
    May she Rest In Peace.
    Therese (Cowen) Colalancia
