Margery Miner, 96, who was a WWII bride, died September 1 at an assisted living facility in Springfield, VA from natural causes, said a son Skip Miner.
Margery first came to the U.S. from her home in Melbourne, Australia in 1945 with her first child, by ship and going from San Francisco to Kansas City via troop train to meet her new in-laws, while her husband was still serving in the Philippines. She lived and raised her five children primarily in Annandale, VA.
She earned her Associates Degree in Library Science from NVCC and worked in the Fairfax County library system for several years. She was active in the Catholic Church for many years, taking communion to members who were unable to attend church services. After the passing of her husband in 1999 she moved to Greenspring Village. She is survived by her 2 sons and 3 daughters, 7 grandchildren, and 11 great grandchildren
