Mary Ann Miller1936-2024Mary Ann was born to Pauline and Emanuel T. Hoffman on August 7, 1936 at Portland Sanitarium Hospital (Portland Adventist Hospital). Mary Ann’s grandparents immigrated to the United States at Ellis Island, NY in 1900. They were of German-Russian decent. Mary Ann had many aunts and uncles who settled on wheat farms in eastern Washington. Her father operated a sanitary service business in Portland and her mother prepared the company books and was a homemaker. Mary Ann grew up in northeast Portland and her family attended the Congregational and later the Methodist churches. During childhood she enjoyed many summer weekend trips to the beach and to visit her grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins in Washington. Mary Ann stayed for a month on the original family farm near Lind, WA during the summer of 1950. The farm is still run by succeeding generations of the family. She graduated from Girls Polytechnic High School in 1954. She learned to play the piano as a child and played the Tuba in the Girls Poly Marching Band, performing in the Portland Rose Parade. Mary Ann also enjoyed singing in choir and did so for many years in her church. She lived in Portland for her first 60 years. In summer 1956 Mary Ann and her mother went on an epic trip by train from Portland to Chicago and on to Indiana to visit an aunt, uncle and cousins. Following high school Mary Ann began working for Meier & Frank in downtown Portland. After a short time she got a job at Sperry and Hutchins (famous for S&H Green Stamps) in the Hollywood District of northeast Portland. There she met Viola Hermans and they became good friends. Viola introduced Mary Ann to Richard (Dick) Miller on a blind date with his friend Don Smith. Mary Ann and Dick began dating and became a couple. They were married on August 16, 1957 at Rose City Park Methodist Church. Viola was Mary Ann’s Maid of Honor and Don was Dick’s Best Man. Mary Ann and Dick settled in southeast Portland in the first of four homes that Dick built as a carpenter. Soon they started a family which turned out to be four boys, Dale, Paul, Jim, Neal all at Portland Sanitarium Hospital (Portland Adventist Hospital). For the next two decades Mary Ann concentrated on the boys and being a great mom and homemaker. As the boys were finishing out high school Mary Ann began working outside the home again as a Secretary, first for the Capitol Hill United Methodist Church which they became members of in 1967 when they moved to southwest Portland into another house that Dick built. In 1981 she started working as a secretary at the Oregon State Bar Board of Bar Examiners in Portland. Mary Ann retired in 1991. Through the years she and Dick were in groups of friends who enjoyed playing Bunco and other card games. This is something they continued in retirement, still playing Pinochle games with friends at the estates once or twice a week. Mary Ann was a member of the Beta Sigma Fi Sorority for 65 years and had many longtime women friends in that group. When the boys were growing up many family vacations involved camping with friends and their families. Detroit Lake, Spirit Lake and Prineville Resort were frequent destinations along with two cross-country trips to Nebraska to visit Dick’s relatives. Following retirement Mary Ann and Dick bought a 5th wheel RV and traveled in a group going to places in many states. In 1996 they sold their large home in Portland and moved to Depoe Bay and lived in a mobile home in Willark Park. They subsequently moved to Woodburn in 2004 to be closer to family and medical services. Mary Ann was very family oriented and thoroughly enjoyed hosting and being a guest at all the birthdays, holiday or any celebration. Mary Ann was a great cook and like her mother enjoyed making dozens of Christmas cookies of at least a dozen kinds each year. She was a prolific gardener like her father. Gardening and maintaining a beautiful yard was a kind of therapy for Mary Ann and she took great pride in it. In 1998 they had bought into a mobile home vacation resort in Desert Hot Springs, California next door to Palm Springs. They kept their homebase in Oregon and spent winters in the desert. Mary Ann enjoyed gardening in spring and summer and being in the warm desert during winter. Even with many health challenges the last several years, Mary Ann and Dick continued to go to the desert when they could, most recently in February 2023. In November and December Mary Ann experienced several health challenges that together were more than she could overcome and she passed away due to heart failure on Friday, January 12, 2024. Mary Ann is survived by her husband of 66 years Dick, sons, Dale (Cathy), Paul (Janell), Jim (Caecilia), Neal. Grandchildren, Ryan (Jessica), Leah (Kent), Stephanie (Jacob), Jaren, Ori.
