Maureen E. Miller

Date of Passing:

June 3, 2024

Maureen E. (Richard) Miller, 59, of West Greenwich, RI, passed away unexpectedly on Monday, June 3, 2024. She was the beloved wife of Steven A. Miller, and the cherished mother of Brenna E. Miller (partner Benjamin Anthony). Maureen was the daughter of the late Eugene and Dolores (Sheridan) Richard of Portsmouth, RI. Born in Providence, RI, daughter of the late Eugene and Dolores Sheridan Richard, Maureen is also survived by her extended family: brother Jeffrey Richard (Lillian), sister Dawn Davies, brother Terence Richard (Barbara), sister Rosemary Richard, and Maureen’s twin, Colleen McCabe (Robert).

Maureen was equally beloved by her in laws – mother-in-law Betty Miller and late husband Thomas (Jack), Thomas Miller (Susan), Dave Miller (Wendy Waskin), and Tracey (Miller) Archambault (Bob).

Her nieces and nephews include Felicia (Richard) and Michael Smith, Anthony Richard, Diana Richard, Richard, Margaret and Eleanor Davies, Samantha and Jake Richard, and Robert and Meaghan McCabe, as well as Eric Miller and his wife Erin, Bethany (Miller) McCann and her husband Bo, Katie Miller and her husband Troy Perry, Corey Miller and his wife Stephanie, Aaron Miller and his wife Jennifer, Lee Miller, Bobby Archambault, Kaila (Archambault) Pacheco and her husband Enio, Cody Archambault and his partner Gabby Kabitte, Jesse Archambault, and Jarrett Archambault, and her great nieces and nephews: Aven Smith, Jordan and Sophia Miller, Olive and Simon McCann, Logan and Cooper Perry, Aurora and Eloise Miller, James, Andrew and Ethan Miller, Sebastian, Gunther, Ariel and Liam Archambault and Carter Pacheco.

Maureen, as her mother used to say, never met a stranger. She was whip-smart, and had the rare gift of connecting people together, even those who might not be thought of as a pairing. Her memory for the details of the lives of people she knew was voluminous. She had the gift of making lifelong friends. She was also a donor of her time, and enjoyed particularly when she could mix golf with philanthropic work.

Maureen had a passion for anything Clemson, even though the color orange was not her favorite. She could be counted on to plan a lunch group whenever she could. Her greatest joy in life, aside from being a wife and mother, was to spend time with friends and family and people she cared about.

Maureen was a graduate of Portsmouth High School, Villanova University and received her master’s degree at Bryant University. Her work life often focused on developing donor relations, recently at Brown University and Salve Regina University.

Maureen’s funeral will be held Monday June 10, 2024 from the W.
