Miriam also served as the matriarch for many nieces and nephews. Miriam was born on April 9th 1924 in Corona, New York. She was the third of five children. She was a devout and faithful Catholic proven by a legendary story of Miriam walking in a blizzard to get to Sunday Mass. Always an excellent student, Miriam was the Valedictorian of her high school class. Prior to her marriage she worked as a secretary for Pan Am Airlines.
