Margaret Jane (Miller) Jannetta, 92, of Duluth, died Monday, Sept. 3, 2012, at the Benedictine Health Center with her family by her side.
Miggs, the only child of Arthur B. and Marie (Sullivan) Miller was born on July 15, 1920, in Minneapolis. The family moved to Duluth when she was three years old. She graduated from Stanbrook Hall at the College of St. Scholastica in 1938 and from Ogontz College in Philadelphia in 1940.
Miggs married Robert Jannetta on Oct. 9, 1944. They lived in Silver Bay for many years where they raised their four children and enjoyed many rounds of golf. Following Bob’s death she moved back to Duluth, where she lived until her death.
Miggs was a unique and wonderful woman, greatly loved by her family. She loved sports, politics, history, and always maintained her intellectual curiosity. She had a quick sense of humor and her grandchildren enjoyed many meaningful conversations with her throughout their lives. She will live in our hearts forever.
She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband; and her son, Robert.
