After raising four children, she would later work at Meldot’s, the Mount Carmel Area School District in the library, and last with the Mount Carmel Area Public Library, where she twice served as the acting librarian.

Miriam was a devoted member of Our Lady of Mount Carmel Parish where she served as a collection counter and attended mass daily; financial secretary for Mount Carmel’s B.P.O. Elks Lodge 356 Ladies Auxiliary; and the Mount Carmel Area Football Booster Association. She was the first cheerleader moderator for the Mount Carmel Jets midget football team in 1965.

Miriam, known to many as Mrs. B., was a wonderful mother and Baba and her love for Mount Carmel was only surpassed by the love she had for Revo, her family, and friends. The highlight of her day was her coffee club with family or whoever stopped by. A passionate football fan, a great weekend for her was the Red Tornadoes winning on Friday, the Nittany Lions on Saturday, and the Eagles on Sunday.

In the future when permitted, a Memorial Mass of Christian Burial will be announced and celebrated in Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Church.
