George M. Miller

George Michael Miller, 86, of Plains Township, passed at his private residence, on Saturday, April 20,2019, surrounded by his loving family.

Born in Suscon, on September 10,1932, George was one of five children of the late Jess and Catherine Flannery Miller.  He grew up in the Suscon section of Pittston Township and attended local schools.

He was an equipment operator and laborer for the Pagnotti Enterprises Inc. for thirty-five years. During this time, George married Rose Ostrowski and established their homestead in Plains Township. Together they raised their two sons George and Joseph (Jay).  Rose passed in 2014.

George, in his later years, loved to keep his yard in the best shape from frequently cutting his grass, to maintaining a productive garden. In the summer evening, he enjoyed sitting outside with his family and just enjoying the peace of his yard.

His greatest joy was to help raise his grandson Jesse, from a baby to a young man.

 George was a member of the Henry Citizens Club and the Polish American Veterans (P.A.V.).

 He was preceded in death by his loving wife Rose, son Joseph (Jay); brothers Jess and John; and sisters Mary Jane Wrubel, and Katherine Wruble.

Surviving are his son George and his wife Suzanne, Plains; grandson Jesse, Plains; sister-in-law Dolores Miller, Suscon, and many nieces and nephews.
