Mae J. Miller, 84, passed away on Saturday, July 27, 2013, at Appleton Medical Center. Mae was born on May 14, 1929, to Paul and Loretta (Schoenheide) Hoffman.

On May 21, 1955, she was united in marriage to Bruce G. “Buzz” Miller. Mae worked at Treasure Island and then JC Penney for 30 years until her retirement in 1992. She was very active in her community and was a volunteer at the Volunteer Center for many years working at Goodwill, Harbor House and many other organizations.

Mae enjoyed bowling, knitting, playing cards (with the same card club for over 55 years) and she took great pride in her house. She was very active at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church and she instilled her faith and work ethic in her children. Most of all Mae cared deeply for her children, grandchildren, and great-grandson and loved the holiday traditions for which those memories will always be treasured.

Mae is survived by her four children: Kim (Allan) Koenig, Omaha, Nebraska, Timothy (Karen) Miller, Slinger, Connie Breit, Fond du Lac, and Todd (Wendy) Miller, Oshkosh; seven grandchildren: Adam Miller, Jarrett (fiancée Denise Schley) Miller, Leann (Gurn) Curry, Christine Koenig, Jordan Breit, and Mitchell (fiancée Kayla Hesprich) Breit, Alex Miller; a greatgrandson Cooper Curry; and nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

Mae was preceded in death by her parents, her husband Bruce “Buzz,” a brother, Bob (Mary) Hoffman and a sister, Lorraine (Floyd) Salzman.
