Obituary for Margaret A. Miner
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Margaret “Maggie” Miner, loving mother, wife, and friend, to all the lives she has touched. She left us peacefully on June 23, 2020 at Sea View Memory Care in Brookings, Oregon. She was 78 years old when she walked into Jesus’s arms.
She was born on her parent’s farm in Wentzville, Missouri. She grew up with two older sisters and two younger brothers. She enjoyed swimming and fishing in the family pond, sewing 4-H projects, wearing the pretty dresses she and the other women in her family made, and dancing.
She was the beloved mother of Tracie Compomizzo and Patty Brandon-Waterman and the proud grandmother to Steele Brandon.
She was survived by her husband, John Cerro; her sisters, Dorothy Urban and Shirley Park; and her brother, James Freese; and preceded by her brother, Buddy Freese.
Maggie worked as a bank teller for Crocker Bank in Redding. There she made many life long friends. After retirement, she volunteered her time at the North Valley Art League because of her love for art. Her home was decorated with the art from local artists that she loved.
Her hobbies included art, crafts, and sewing. Whether it was clothing, stuffed animals, beautiful quilts or simply hemming clothes for her family she could always be found working on a sewing project.
Her biggest joy was to travel. She took countless photographs on her adventures. Among her many trips were cruises in the Caribbean and through the Panama canal, a bus tour of Italy, and a float plane over the Alaskan Glaciers.
Most of all she loved her family and friends teaching them what selfless giving was. She will be dearly missed and forever in our hearts.
Services for Maggie will be held at Redding Memorial Park, 1201 Continental Street, Redding, California on October 9th, 2020, beginning at 2pm.
