CANFIELD Ann Marie Miller passed away on Feb. 19, 2014, after a courageous year and a half battle with colon cancer.
She was born Nov. 3, 1960, a daughter of Robert and Rita Patrick.
Ann Marie attended Woodrow Wilson High School and the Choffin Career and Technical Center, where she earned her hair stylist license. She was a hair stylist for 35 years and her customers meant the world to her.
She also had a passion for bowling and bowled in the Holiday Ladies League for over 30 years. Tuesday nights were her nights to unwind and to enjoy time with some of her closest friends including her best friend, Toni. She couldnt wait for bowling season to start every year.
Her greatest passion though was running her business, Tasty and Creative, with her sister and co-owner, Rita. She always loved doing crafts and making flower and wreath arrangements for every holiday of the year. After it was suggested that she should sell some of those crafts, she partnered with her sister to begin their business selling gourmet dips and creating many other craft items. They attended craft shows all year long and thoroughly enjoyed spending the time together.
Ann Marie loved attending all of her sons sporting events and rooting them on. She was always one of the more entertaining spectators. She also loved camping. Some of her fondest memories were from the times spent with family and friends traveling around the country to different campgrounds in her motor home.
Ann Marie is survived by her husband, Jeff; sons, Christopher and Kevin; mother, Rita Patrick; sister, Rita (Robert) Rider; and many nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her father, Robert Patrick; and brother, Bobby Patrick.
