Miller, Violet Koury

Tappan, NY

Violet Koury Miller, a beloved mother, grandmother, aunt, and friend, passed on December 11, 2020. She is survived by her daughter Cynthia, granddaughters Katherine and Margot, grandson-in-law Kyle, and their many pets (4 cats and 2 dogs to be exact).

Violet was born in Brooklyn on February 12 many years ago (she never wanted anyone to know her true age). She attended boarding school at St. John’s Episcopal School in Mendham, NJ and later attended Columbia University and Brooklyn College. She worked at Chase Manhattan Bank and finished her career at St. Nicholas Home. In 1959, she met the love of her life, Joseph Harry Miller, at a Halloween party! They tied the knot the following year, on July 2, 1960 surrounded by all of their loved ones.

Her life will be celebrated Saturday, December 26, 10am, at Our Lady of Sacred Heart Church in Tappan, NY.

“I wish that we all get as old as me and more…and richer and richer!” – Violet Miller
