EPSOM – Margaret E. Miner, 88, passed away on Wednesday, June 5, 2019 at Concord Hospital following a long and courageous battle with heart disease and diabetes.

Educated in Pittsfield schools, Margaret was employed by Adams Brothers Shoes prior to her marriage. She cherished time spent with her husband and sons and was a wonderful wife and mother. Her home was always filled with love as she also cared for many other family’s children, both as a babysitter and foster parent.

The greatest reward she experienced in retirement was becoming a proud grandparent and spending precious time with her loving granddaughters Sarah and Allison.
Besides her parents, Margaret was predeceased by her husband and love of
her life, Charles R. Miner, Sr. in March 2008 with whom she shared 53 years of marriage. She was also predeceased by her brother, Richard L. Picard who died in July 2013.
