Marie Miller Sanko of Moosic, entered into eternal rest Monday at her home with her family by her side. She is survived by her devoted husband, Anthony, and together, they have celebrated 59 years of marriage.
Born in Old Forge, she was the daughter of the late Frank and Rose Robinson Miller. Marie was a 1954 graduate of Old Forge High School.
