Marilynn June Miles was born June 2, 1928 in the Bronx section of New York City and grew up there in the midst of the Great Depression and World War II. After the end of the war, she married her high school sweetheart, Alfred Zierler, who was an officer in the United States Air Force. She lived in Japan while her husband was stationed there, and then moved to Arizona when her husband was transferred there in the late 1950’s. It was then she began working civil service for the Air Force as well, as a Medical Records Technician at Luke Air Force Base in Glendale, Arizona and also where she would meet her second husband, Wycliffe Miles, also a member of the United States Air Force. After being stationed at Incirlik Air Base outside of Adana, Turkey for three years, the couple returned to Arizona and settled in Mesa where Marilynn lived until well past her retirement from civil service and eventually moved to Friendship Village in Tempe, Arizona. She and her husband were avid bowlers, and Marilynn loved traveling, enjoying the Southwest, Square Dancing, going to concerts, dining out with friends and family, playing bridge, gambling in Vegas, and reading her favorite book in the pool on the beaches of Mexico.
She is preceded by Cliff, her husband of 35 years, and she is survived by her children Sharynn Meltzer, Viki Gonzalez, Debbie Campbell, and Randy Miles, her grandchildren Ted Campbell, Clifford Campbell, Erika Meltzer Fillmore, and Adrienne Meltzer, and her great grandchildren Lyvea Campbell, Taylor Campbell, Mylah Campbell, Dylan Fillmore, Elliana Fillmore, and Mason Fillmore.
There will be a service at Mountain View Memorial on Oct 19, at 10am 7900 E Main, Mesa, AZ.
She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, and best friend. She will be greatly missed by all that knew and loved her.
