Mary Joan Samberg ’64 passed away

Posted by mcauleyhighschool on November 30, 2016

Mary Joan (Samberg)
Mary Joan (Samberg) Miller, 70, peacefully passed away Sunday, November 27, 2016, at home. Her love story with her husband, Bob began at the age of 12 at St. James grade school. She and Bob did everything together from work to play and thoroughly enjoyed being with each other. She married Bob at the age of 22 and started a family. They raised 3 wonderful kids, Sarah (Steve) Dent, Anne (Damian) Ruggiero, and Mark (Lindsay) Miller. They also had 7 grandkids, Sophie and Charlie Dent, Grace, Nick, and Joe Ruggiero, and Lauren and Alex Miller, the 7 Cool Cats. Her family was her greatest passion.
Mary loved spending time with her family and knew no limits. In the early years, she guided her children to be the best they could be and gave them the tools needed to succeed in life, and consistently provided tremendous love and support. Each family member felt that they were her favorite, though they knew everyone else felt the same. She lived to spend holidays with her family, take the kids to “Grammy’s Park”, do it up on a hot summer day at the lake, or just enjoy time together. Mary was the epitome of a mother.
When Mary was not spending time with her family, she could be found cooking, gardening, and entertaining. For her it was never about the flowers or food, rather the small details surrounding it that made it memorable. She had an elegance that made you want to be elegant, an unspoken expectation that made you want to be your best, a strength that made you stronger, and a love that provided security. Mary made the ordinary extraordinary.
In 1984, Mary and her husband created Bob Miller Interiors. Mary was an integral part of running the business and had a passion for what she did. They were both active in the business until 4 months ago, when they were both diagnosed with terminal illnesses one month apart. In the spirit of a true love story, the final chapter was written, as Mary passed away a short 27 days after her true love, Bob.
Mary was born and raised in Toledo and was preceded in death by her parents, Rita (Zieman) and Harold E. Samberg. She is survived by her brothers, John (Sue) Samberg, Fred Samberg, and
Peter (Penni) Samberg; and sister, Karen Malcom.
The family will receive guests from 3:00 to 8:00 p.m. on Thursday, December 1, at Ansberg-West Funeral Home, 3000 Sylvania Ave. The funeral service will be held Friday, December 2, at 12:00 noon at the Historic St. Patrick’s Church in Downtown Toledo with a celebration of life following the service. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Hospice of Northwest Ohio at 30000 East River Road, Perrysburg OH 43551. To send her family online condolences, please visit
