Please share a memory of Mary Elaine to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
Mary Elaine (Tennison) Miller, 65, of Windsor, Missouri died Tuesday morning, September 6, 2022, peacefully in her sleep at home. She was born July 9, 1957, in Branson, Missouri, the daughter of Elbert Cleo Tennison and Edna Maxine (Baker) Tennison. She was preceded in death by her husband, Michael Dean Miller. She worked for AT&T for thirty years before retiring and returning to college for nursing school. Mary worked as a charge nurse at a couple different nursing homes. Eventually she retired once more to fulfill her favorite role as a caregiver for her grandchildren fulltime. Mary was an animal lover. It could be huge reptiles, tropical fish, peacocks, geese or horses. She raised wolf packs, birds, cats, and horses when she was younger. She was admired for her strength and the love she had for her husband, her children, but especially her grandchildren. Mary continued to be a caregiver to her grandchildren through her chemotherapy and radiation treatments because she cherished every waking second she could spend with her grandbabies. She was a connoisseur of the movies, actors, and actresses. Momma Mary was a place of comfort for many and was considered the place to gather for most of her children's friends, fully stocked with snacks and soda pop. Mary enjoyed bird watching, reading, puzzles, spoiling her grandkids, and making memories with her family. Mary was the embodiment of compassion, strength, generosity, and altruism. Mary is survived by her children, Keefer Matthew Miller and his wife Emily Elizabeth Miller, her daughter Hannah Maxine Miller-Cox; and her four grandchildren Peyton Rose Miller, Dean Michael Miller, Annsley Maxine Cox, Juniper Elaine Cox; four siblings Linda Crowley, Berta Paul and her husband Bob Paul, Brenda Feipel and her husband Tom Feipel, and Jim Tennison and his wife Melissa Tennison; and numerous nephews and nieces. The family will receive friends from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m., Saturday, September 10, 2022, at the Hadley Funeral Home, Windsor. The family suggests contributions to help with funeral expenses and may be left in care of the funeral home.
