Obituary for Anne S Miller (Sodd)

MILLER, ANNE S. (nee Sodd)

Born in Minneapolis in 1925 to John and Anna Sodd, the sixth of twelve children and second of seven girls. Anne grew up on Fourth Street NE in Minneapolis and was a regular at the Northeast Neighborhood House. She attended Sheridan Junior High and Edison High School, quitting Edison in her Junior year to head to Seattle where she was part of the “Rosie the Riveter” generation who helped build B-29’s for the U.S. Army effort in World War ll. She later went back to earn her GED certificate at age 43. In the 1960’s this single mother successfully raised three children on her own, seeing all of them graduate from the University of Minnesota. After retiring from 20-plus years as an assembler at Honeywell, she became a willing and frequent volunteer at St. Mary’s Russian Orthodox Cathedral in Minneapolis. Affectionately referred to as The Cabbage Queen by her children, her fabulous eats included pirohi, Nana banana bread, and chocolate chip cookies. Survived by children Thomas Miller, James Miller (Mary Rose Ciatti), and Cynthia Bergeron (David); sisters Helen Josul, Martha Dzubak, and Irene Novak (Jack); grandchildren Brendan Ciatti-Miller (Patuu), Kelsey Ciatti-Miller (Jacob Hanson), Sarah Loken (Stephen Frigon), and Charlie Loken; great-grandchildren Jasper, Dylan, and Avery; as well as a host of nieces and nephews. A special thank you to all the staff and her friends at Catholic ElderCare RiverVillage East.
