Margaret P. Miller

July 5, 1918 - December 26, 2016

Margaret P Miller, age 98 of Des Moines, peacefully passed away on Monday, December 26, 2016 at the CLC Rehabilitation Center. She was born to the late Paul and Leona Jackson on July 5, 1918.

Margaret attended East High School. After High School she worked as a day worker and then later went on to be a seamstress at the Younkers Building in downtown Des Moines. She was known for her ability to create attire that looked as if it came right out of the catalog.

Margaret loved her family. Together she and her husband Theodore Miller had two children. Paul “Buddy” and Teena were her joy. She always made sure that they were taken care of.

Margaret was a God fearing woman. She served on the Mother’s Board at Maple Street Baptist Church where she also sang in the choir. Spending time with the Lord is where she found her peace.

Margaret is preceded in death by her parents Paul and Leona Jackson, her husband Theodore R. Miller, and her sisters Mary Lee Brown and Imagene Sharp.

Left to cherish Margaret’s memories are her son Paul (Lilian) Miller, her daughter LaTeena Crawford, her grandsons Elan (Nichole) Crawford and Mykel Crawford, her granddaughters, Lavelle Miller, LeSahre (Marcus) Brown, Celeste Miller, her great grandchildren and her great-great grandchildren, and a whole lot of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

Margaret will be greatly missed but never forgotten.
