Miller, Carolyn A.

Carolyn A. Miller, 94, passed away peacefully at the Home of the Good Shepherd in South Glens Falls, NY on Sunday, July 14, 2019.

Born November 10, 1924 in Schenectady, she was the daughter of the late Raymond and Wilda Hodgkins.

Carolyn grew up in Yeadon, PA and graduated from Yeadon HS. She received her Bachelors Degree in Education from the University of Pennsylvania. Carolyn married Herbert C.

Carolyn was an accomplished classical pianist and would always give an impromptu concert for anyone who asked.
