ARGYLE – Marjorie (Margie) Elinor Miller, 90, passed away peacefully on Saturday, Dec. 21, 2019, with her sister, Ruth, her daughter, Lori, and her niece, April, at her side, as “Take Me Home Country Roads” played softly in the background.

Margie was born the daughter of Fred Wright Miller and Leona Gertrude (Williams) Miller, in Argyle on July 2, 1929 and was a true “firecracker” in her day.

Margie graduated from Greenwich Central School and Albany Business College.
Margie had her hands in food and numbers throughout her life, owning and managing her own restaurant, the Ro-Ma-Ru, in Argyle, and later working as a waitress and hostess at the Chateau de Louis in South Glens Falls. She also worked in the offices throughout 3 generations of family in the auction business; first with her father, Fred Miller, and her brother, Roblee Miller, at Miller’s Livestock Market, and later so proudly with her nephew, Kyle McPhail, at K-Hill Auctioneering. She also enjoyed serving her customers at Stewart’s in Greenwich, the Anvil Inn in Fort Edward, and in her early years at the Blue Sky in Lake George. For a period of time, she also held her real estate license.

Margie enjoyed her family – her children and granddaughters, her sister, her niece and her nephews; she enjoyed cooking – Michigan hot dog sauce, homemade pies, baked beans and chicken liver patè; she enjoyed making “goodies” for friends and family, especially candy & cookies at Christmas; she enjoyed doing crafts, going for coffee and scratch off lottery tickets; she adored her German Shepard dogs over the years and especially her cat, “Cali”. She also enjoyed a good whiskey sour and loved to hear a good joke!

Margie was predeceased by her parents, an infant brother, Earl Miller, her brother, F. Roblee Miller, and her brother in law, Ronald G. McPhail.

Margie is survived by her daughter, Lori Lopez-Hammond (Lew Hammond) and their children (her granddaughters), Kayli Fay Hammond and Kara Lin Margaret Hammond of Gansevoort; her son, Dana Lopez (Sherry) of Hudson Falls; her sister, Ruth Miller McPhail of Greenwich; her special niece and nephews, April Douglas (Jim) of Clifton Park; R. Kyle McPhail (Karen) of Greenwich; and Todd McPhail (Amy) of Greenwich. Other survivors include her nephew, Fred Jody Miller (Kathy) of Middle Grove; her niece, Amy Miller (Ken) of San Francisco, CA; her nephew, Jonathan Miller (Janice) of Buffalo; and her nephew, Aaron Miller of Vail, CO; along with many other nieces, nephews, cousins and sisters- and brothers-in law; her special friends, Jane Flatley Garstang and Sibyl Ketcham.

Friends are invited to call from 4-6pm on Friday, December 27, 2019 at Kilmer Funeral Home, 123 Main Street, Argyle, NY 12809.

A funeral service will follow the calling hours at 6pm at the funeral home.

Burial will be private and at the convenience of the family.

Dear Family of Marge,
My memories of Marge were during my years growing up in Greenwich and later on seeing her at several restaurant businesses, including her own. She always greeted Nelson and I with a smile and by name, asking how were we doing, as she did with everyone. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. God Bless.

To Ruth and her family. Margie's children Lori and Dana, I am so sorry for the loss of Margie from all of our lives. I have known her since I was in my teens and she hired me to baby sit  Lori and Dana. What started out as a job turned into a lifetime of friendship. She helped me to grow into the person I am today with her advice, love and constant belief in me. The day of my Mom's funeral, after losing touch with Margie for a number of years, she walked into the funeral parlor. I felt God had sent her back to me. Ever since that day, I refer to her as Mom Margie. She will always have a special place in my heart.     Sincerely,     Jane Flatley Garstang

Trying to find the words to say. So sorry I lost touch with you Margie. You are so precious to me. Your advice on cooking, baking, running a restaurant, running a business, men ha! Will never leave me. I wish I could go back for just a moment and talk over a hot cup of soup. You will be forever remembered by myself and my daughter Lauryn. Fly high beautiful lady. Love, Missy
