Margaret Jane Jannetta

Margaret Jane (Miller) Jannetta, 92 of Duluth, died, Monday, Sept. 3, 2012 at the Benedictine Health Center with her family by her side.


Miggs, the only child of Arthur B. and Marie (Sullivan) Miller was born on July 15, 1920 in Minneapolis.  Thee family moved to Duluth when she was 3 years old.  She graduated from Stanbrook Hall at the College of St. Scholastica in 1938 and from Ogontz College in Philadelphia in 1940.
