    She was born on May 19, 1931, in Little Falls, the daughter of the late Nicholas and Irene (Kane) Miller. She attended St. Mary's Academy and graduated with the class of 1950. Aggie was a devoted Catholic and was a life long member of St. Joseph's Church in Dolgeville,
    For 43 years, Aggie was employed as a telephone operator for several companies such as New York Telephone, AT&T and later at Verizon, where she retired in 1993. In her career, she traveled to many places such as Kingston, Connecticut and lastly to Utica. Aggie formed many friendships with her career as a telephone operator and was a proud member of the Telephone Pioneers of America.
    Aggie was also a member of Oppenheim Senior Citizens, Schuyler Senior Citizens and Spruce Lake Fish and Game Club. Aggie liked to travel, which included trips to Europe to Italy, Ireland and England and across the United States. Among her trips, she traveled to the Caribbean, Canada and went on several cruises.
    She was known to many people as "Aunt Aggie." Aggie spent her entire life taking care of those she loved the most, her mother, father and family. She enjoyed reminiscing of days gone by.

    Aggie mostly enjoyed her nieces and nephews. She helped her brothers by babysitting their children in her younger years and most recently babysitting her great-niece and great-nephew, Madison and Ethan. Aggie touched many lives in her 81 years on earth. She was a kind, gentle soul who was generous and always giving of herself. Aunt Aggie will be greatly missed by her family and her many friends.
