Obituary

Mary Ann Miller, age 61 died peacefully at home in Dallas, Tx surrounded by family on 10/21/21

Born 2/22/60 in Fort Worth Texas, and later residing in Dallas and Mesquite, TX. Mary was a graduate of Skyline High School in Dallas, TX.  She was a devoted wife to Marshall Miller for 32 years and loving mother, raising four children and two step children and an amazing grandmother to 6 grandchildren. Upon becoming an empty nester, she joined the retail industry, working at Goodwill Industries for 13 years until her retirement in 2019.  Mary was raised and remained a Catholic in her faith until the time of her passing and became a strong advocate for breast cancer awareness after her sister and she herself became breast cancer fighters.  Growing up, she enjoyed working on cars with her father, was a big Dallas Cowboys fan and her favorite music artist of all time was Elvis Presley. She was a kind and gentle soul, who would open her heart and her door to anyone who was in need.  She showed an amazing amount of grace and will through her illness and was the pillar of strength and to many through out her life. To know Mary was to know you were accepted and loved unconditionally as she never met a person that she didn’t see the goodness in.  She will be missed beyond measure by many.

Preceded in death by her daughter Sherry Watts, sister Teresa Moody and father Toby Moreno.

Survived by her loving husband Marshall Miller, daughters Crystal Watts and Candace Williams and husband Jonathan.  Son Robert Moreno and wife Shanae. 6 grandchildren, Valerie Hurtado, K.C. Wilkinson, Desiree Moreno, Robert Moreno, Jr., Natalie Moreno and Sally Williams. Step Daughters Rachel Wilborn and Amanda Miller.  Her mother Betty Stevensen.  Her sisters Lucille Munn and husband Steve and Frances Moreno.  Her honorary bonus daughter Liz Hernandez and son Julian Hernandez.  She is also survived by many nieces, nephews and extended family whom she loved dearly.

Funeral Services will be held on October 29th, 2pm at North Dallas Funeral Home 2710 Valley View Ln.  Dallas, TX 75234.

Following the service everyone is invited to a reception at the family’s home: 2400 Royal Oaks Drive, Plano, TX 75074

    I was saddened to hear of Mary’s passing. Marshall has been a special person to me during our 19 years of working together. Mary always had a big smile whenever I saw her.

    I know this is devastating for the family. My prayers for peace and strength during this difficult time.

    GROWNING UP I KNEW THIS LADY BY MY MAMA MARY . SHE LOVED ME AS HER OWN . ALTHOUGH SHE WAS ONLY MY AUNT SHE NOT ONCE TREATED ME ANY LESS THAN IF I WERE HER OWN . WHEN I HAD NOWHERE AND NO ONE TO TURN TO MY AUNT MARY WAS THERE . SHE TOOK ME IN MANY TIMES IN SPITE OF MY SITUATION. SHE LET ME GO HOME TO HER ALWAYS BUT THE TWO MOST IMPORTANT TIMES WERE WHEN I GOT CLEAN OFF HEROIN WHEN I WAS 18 . SHE DIDN’T HESITATE AT ALL AND SHE STOOD BY MY SIDE HELD MY HAND LET ME CRY ON HER SHOULDER GOT ON MY ASS IF I WAS ACTING OUT OR BEING WEAK SHE HELPED ME KICK THE NEEDLE N STILL TODAY I HAVEN’T WENT BACK 21 YEARS AGO SHE SAVED MY LIFE . I STILL STRUGGLE WITH MY ADDICTION JUST NOT THROUGH A NEEDLE THANKS TO MY AUNT MARY . THE SECOND MOST IMPORTANT TIME OF MY LIFE WAS WHEN I HAD MY TEN YR OLD MARIANA . I WENT TO NEXUS COMPLETED THE PROGRAM AND ON EASTER SUNDAY 2011 HER N MY UNCLE CORKEY PICKED ME N MY LIL GIRL UP N TOOK US HOME WITH THEM . THEN I ONCE AGAIN BROKE THEIR HEARTS AND RIPPED MY DAUGHTER OUT OF THEIR HEARTS N HOME JUST TO LOSE HER MYSELF . I WILL NEVER FORGIVE MYSELF FOR HURTING MY AUNT MARY LIKE I DID BUT I PRAY TO GOD THAT SHE HAS FORGIVEN ME FOR ALL THE PAIN AND LETDOWNS . SHE WAS THE MOST AMAZING WOMAN I KNOW AND I WILL FOREVER CARRY HER MEMORY IN MY HEART . I LOVE YOU MAMA MARY REST IN PEACE …

"If I could give 6 stars I would. Aria made a difficult easier to deal with by basically taking care of everything in an efficient but very empathetic manner. I can speak highly enough of Dusty Martin, who helped us with all of the planning and logistics. He was incredibly understanding and helpful."

"Nothing prepares you for the grief you go through when losing a child. I called this funeral home at 2:00 am broken and could barely talk. The amount of compassion and empathy they showed me immediately let me know I found the right place to cremate my son. I cannot thank them enough for their professionalism, SINCERE concern, and commitment to making sure my son was honored in the most respectful way. I hope this Funeral home values her as much as my family and I do."

"I can’t say enough about how helpful and professional Dusty Martin, the funeral director at the Aria Cremation location on NW Highway has been. From my initial call, he was kind and informative. My friend died at home while on hospice and she was picked up in about an hour after receiving the call from the hospice nurse. The person who arrived to pick her up was also very professional/respectful and allowed us to take as much time with her as we wished. When I met with Dusty the next day about arrangements, he explained the process and options available without being pushy or trying to “sell” extras. Throughout the process, he kept me informed and, for example, was careful to be certain I understood the cost of the obituary I wanted and offered some options for reducing that cost if I wished. When I stopped by for another reason and started talking about some of the problems I was having with the pictures and media I hoped to use at a memorial lunch I was planning, he not only listened patiently but offered technology advice and let me use his personal media player. I have had experience arranging cremations for four others using two other local companies, and this experience with Dusty at Aria has been by far the best one I have had."

"My Daddy’s service and our family experience at Aria Northwest Highway was truly blessed. Funeral Director Dustin Martin is the kind of person that you would like to see on a more regular basis – but in his industry – you hope to not see him that often. That being said – THANK YOU DUSTIN for your unending kindness, compassion and friendship through the process. Meeting you and discussing Dallas History, Find A Grave and my Dad’s lifelong contributions to the great City of Dallas was simply wonderful! In memory of my dad James A. Dodd, Sr. – I want to personally thank you and let you know that you made everything better in that moment. Your calling to “Be There” is spot on. Aria has a one in a million guy in you! Bling Blinky of TEXAS Shout Out: God Bless You!!"
