November 08, 2005

Charlotte R. Miller, a homemaker who enjoyed music and poetry, died of Alzheimer's disease Nov. 1 at Morningside House, a Parkville assisted-living facility. She was 72.

Born Charlotte Rose Haetler in Baltimore and raised on Holbrook Street, she was a 1951 graduate of Eastern High School. She worked for four years in the business office of Baltimore Gas and Electric Co., at its Liberty Street headquarters.

An Ellen Avenue resident since 1957, Mrs. Miller liked playing classical and popular music on the piano. She wrote poetry and was an accomplished artist who painted still life and landscape scenes in watercolors and oils.

"She was a careful listener who offered guidance, humor and help to her Parkville neighbors and friends, where she had lived for nearly 50 years. She touched so many lives," said her son, Michael L. Miller of Monkton.

Also surviving are her husband of 50 years, Norman L. Miller, owner of Norman L. Miller Septic Services; two daughters, Nancy M. Martin of Hunt Valley and Patricia Ann Thorpe of Parkville; and seven grandchildren.
