Miriam “Sis” Schiller

Schiller, Miriam “Sis” (Ryan)

Passed gently through Heaven’s Gate on January 9, 2018, to join Our Lord and her husband John “Jack”; her grandson Keegan; and her seven siblings Peggy, Bill, Joe, Eilene, Rosie, John, and Patsy. She will be greatly missed by her eleven children Jim (Carol), Mary Kay Conway, Greg (Julie), Cecilia, Teri (Bob Wheeler), Tony (Susan), Ruth Ghobadi (Nader), Betsy, Rita Bishop (Don), John (Kris), and Bill; her seventeen grandchildren; and four great-grandchildren. Born in 1924, Sis grew up in Mahtomedi, MN where her Irish family and Catholic faith became central to her life. Ever the “Life of the Party”, Sis was happiest surrounded by children, singing, dancing, cracking jokes, and spending long days at the beach with her large, extended family. While she cherished her Irish heritage, Sis welcomed a uniquely diverse and ever expanding family through marriage. A “Celebration of Life” service will be held March 26, 2018 10:30 AM at The Nativity of Our Lord Catholic Church, St. Paul, MN. Service date to be announced on Twin Cities Cremation website twincitiescremation.com. In Miriam’s memory in lieu of flowers donations may be sent to Catholic Charities Dorothy Day Center, St. Paul, MN or to the Alzheimer’s Association to support research and Care.
