Maureen along with her husband Bob were the 3rd of 5 generations of Fagen-Miller Funeral Homes and Fagen-Miller Ambulance Service where she was affectionately known as “Ma Miller” to all the employees. She was active her entire life with many clubs most recently with the Munster Highland Tri-Kappa Organization, Red Hats, Grandmother’s Club, Dyer and Highland Historical Societies.
Reene had a fantastic sense of humor which was evident by her large display of mouse figurines, was always pleasant to be around, and truly loved the company of others. She also enjoyed golfing, bowling and extensive travel.
The family would like to thank the staff at Residences at Deer Creek and Unity Hospice for their fabulous care and concern for our mother.
In lieu of flowers donations to the Dyer, Highland, or St. John Historical Societies would be appreciated.
