Adrian – Shirley Ann Miller, age 86, of Adrian, passed away on Thursday, September 9, 2021, at Hospice of Lenawee. She was born on February 27, 1935, in Dearborn to Louis and Sophia (Tolzdorf) Moore. She married Wesley Eugene Miller Sr. on January 17, 1953, in Taylor, MI and he preceded her in death. Shirley had been employed at the Maurice Spear Campus as a Youth Specialist until her retirement.
Besides raising eight children of her own, Shirley was affectionately addressed as “Mom” by many of her children’s friends who would come to know her over the years. Often, and on any occasion, her home was the setting for the family and friends celebrating holidays or gathering for random social visits. She always provided for her guests as generously as she did for her own family. After retirement, Shirley enjoyed taking many memorable road trips with her younger sister, Jean Hurst.
Shirley is survived by her children, Leslie (Larry) McLeskey, Wesley (Patricia) Miller, Karyn (Kevin) Mercer, Jean (Jim) Aldrich, James (Shari) Miller, Paul Miller, and Marianne Miller; daughter-in-law, Tami Miller; brothers, James, Dennis, and Glenn Moore; sister, Jean Hurst; 17 grandchildren; and 15 great-grandchildren. In addition to her husband, Wesley, and her parents, she was preceded in death by a son, John Miller; brothers, Louis and Robert Moore; and sisters, Francis Miller and Gayle Fauls.
In lieu of flowers, please join the family for a Celebration of Life for Shirley on Saturday, September 25, 2021, at 1:30 p.m. at the Spruce Shelter at Riverside Park in Adrian.
