Judith Miles, 77, of Saline, MI, passed away on August 23, 2019. Judy was born October 19, 1941, the second oldest of 6, born and raised in Syracuse, New York.

She met John Miles, her husband of 51 years, while working for Niagara Mohawk in Syracuse. He persistently asked her out; eventually she ran out of excuses and agreed to a date. They married in 1968, and ran off to South Dakota, then Chicago before landing in Michigan, where they raised their family.
