Miller, Grace  
Grace Mary Miller June 6,1925-June 21,2015 Loving mother, grandmother and great grandmother, Grace passed away peacefully in her home surrounded by her family at the age of 90. During the last several weeks of her life, Grace continued to express her gratitude for the many blessings and people in her life, and her everlasting love for her children. Born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, Grace moved to Los Angeles as a young bride in 1950 with the heart and soul of her life, Bob Miller. Together they tirelessly raised their large family and upon our father's retirement in 1986, they moved to Vista, California. In 2001, she moved to the Palos Verdes Peninsula. Grace was preceded in death by her beloved husband of 50 years, Bob and her granddaughter, Shannon Roberts. Grace is survived by her large and devoted family: Mary and Jaime Roberts; Diane and Sean Dolan; Bob and Sylvia Miller; Helene and Terry Mink; Cecilia Eccles; James and Michelle Miller; Jeanmarie and Geoff Heldoorn. She is the adored grandmother of Caitlin Roberts; Joel Baxter (Holly); Ryland and Rebecca Miller; Jeff (Stacie), Craig (Kathryn), Brett, and Eric Stevens; Ryan and Andrew Eccles; Kendall and Paige Heldoorn; step-grandchildren, Kelly, Peter (Andrea) and Colleen (Dan) Dolan; Jennifer (Sean) and Jessica Mink. Great-grandmother to Riley, Lily, Logan Baxter; Jack Stevens (Jeff) and Chase Stevens (Craig); Mason (Jennifer). She was blessed with many loving friends and will be sorely missed. Grace graduated from Notre Dame College, Staten Island, New York in 1947. In 1948, she had the remarkable distinction of receiving a scholarship to study music as a member of the inaugural class of Pius XII Institute, Villa Schifanoia in Florence, Italy. Her year of study and her ensuing travels throughout Europe during this time, were a source of fond memories throughout her life. Grace had a beautiful mezzo soprano voice and filled her family home with arias from her favorite operas. She loved gardening, reading and spent countless hours sewing outfits for her family and friends. Another favorite pastime was entertaining her friends and gliding on the dance floor with our Fred Astaire father. The family requests that in lieu of flowers, Memorial donations be made in Grace's name to the charity of choice or to the Shannon Roberts Memorial Scholarship Fund at Marymount High School, 10643 W. Sunset Blvd., Los Angeles, Ca 90077. Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Wednesday, July 1, 2015 at 10:00 a.m., Holy Trinity Church, 1280 Santa Cruz St., San Pedro.
