Funeral services will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Wednesday, February 25, 2015 at Padgett Funeral Home in Wallace, NC conducted by the Rev. Addie Bonsignore. A private burial will follow at East Duplin Memorial Gardens in Beulaville, NC. The family will have a visitation one hour prior to the services at Padgett Funeral Home in Wallace, NC.
She is survived by her daughter, Lesia F.

Margaret was born on October 4, 1945 in Duplin County, NC, to the late James Oliver and Letta Howard Miller and was preceded in death by four sisters, Joy DeAngelo, Kathy Miller, Dorothy Miller and Sue Lape and one brother, James Miller.
Margaret was a wonderful and loving mother, mother-in-law, grandmother, sister and daughter. She had a tremendous amount of love for her family and always served as their care giver.
Margaret worked as a nurse for many years serving Duplin, Pender and New Hanover counties until joining the Pharmaceutical industry with Bayer and later retiring from Schering-Plough in 2008.
Margaret's family would like to say a special thank you to her caregivers, Pamela Barnes, Haley Laurie, Jean Prince and Peggy Potter as the last couple of months have been a long journey with Dementia and her most recent stroke. Also, a very special thank you to Elderhaus at the Lake and Lower Cape Fear Hospice for your grace and kindness.
The Lord has called an angel home and she has earned her wings! You will be forever in our hearts and if we can only love as much as you have!
