Eunice Brooks Miller, 88, of Cambridge passed away Thursday, January 17, 2013 at Dorchester General Hospital, Cambridge.
Born March 10, 1924 she was the daughter of the late Lee and Claudia Casten Brooks. Growing up in Crapo and Cambridge, she graduated from Cambridge High School. On May 10, 1945, she became the bride of Addison Lincoln Miller. Together, they raised three children and enjoyed over 42 years of marriage. Mr. Miller passed away August 26, 1987.
Eunice and Addison lived in Oxon Hill, Maryland for 10 years but lived the rest of their lives in Cambridge. She greatly enjoyed being a housewife and was the epitome of the perfect wife. She loved her children and got great pleasure from her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Many fond memories of Granny in her red kitchen will be cherished forever where she enjoyed preparing snow cream and chicken and dumplings. When asked how she would want to be remembered, her answer was “I was a good friend,” and she certainly was. Eunice always had a positive attitude and outlook on life.
