Age 68 of Wilmington, Illinois, died on Thursday morning, May 5, 2022 in her home.
Born in Joliet, Illinois on March 12, 1954, Margaret Elizabeth was a daughter of Harry J. and Mary Alice (Keegan) Miller. She was raised in Wilmington and graduated from Reed Custer High School. She attended Joliet Junior College and received two Associate Degrees in business.
Throughout the years Maggie worked in area restaurants as a waitress, as well as in factory plants. She was the Executive Secretary for the Wilmington City Hall, and also had her own restaurant "Maggie's Americana" in Wilmington.
Maggie married Jack A. Tyler on June 7, 1994, and the two of them gave their time and talent to help many organizations in the surrounding areas, especially with the Lions Club, VFW, and Wilmington Garden Club.
Maggie’s real joy was her craft club that met in her home to make beautiful craft items under her direction. Many ladies learned they have more talent than they knew. She always made a delicious luncheon for everyone, and all enjoyed the great visits with each other. This special time will be missed by many.
Survivors include her husband Jack; one son Jason (Sandra) Rampa, granddaughters: Cheyenne and GiAnna Rampa, and a great-grandson Wyatt Rampa. One brother Harry J. Miller, Jr. of Wilmington, Illinois, and three sisters: her twin, Marion Lindamood of San Antonio, Texas, Harriet (Jack) Baron of Chesterton, Indiana, and Linda Anderson of Wilmington, Illinois.
Jack's family: Victoria (Jason) Keough of Glen Allen, Virginia, Rebecca (Sam) Graf of Chicago, Illinois, and Anne (Don) Ricca of Lansdale, Pennsylvania, as well as numerous nieces and nephews
Maggie was preceded in death by her parents; three sisters and brothers-in-law: Sandy and Jerry Mass, MaryAlice “Butch” and Dave Spivey, Suzanne and Ken Norton, and one brother-in-law, Terry Anderson.
There will be no services, as it is the family’s wishes to celebrate Maggie’s life in private as a family, and they thank you for understanding.
Maggie will be laid to rest in Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery in Elwood at a later date.
Family and friends are encouraged to sign the guest book, upload photographs and share Maggie’s memorial page online through social media.
