Niagara Lutheran Home & Rehabilitation Center Helps Resident Celebrate 100th Birthday

On March 7, 1999, at 2:00 p.m., family, friends and the staff of Niagara Lutheran Home & Rehabilitation Center gathered together to celebrate Louise Miller’s 100th birthday. The party was arranged by Mrs. Miller’s long-time neighborhood friend Florence Jeraci, of Hamburg and held in the Schneider Room of Niagara Lutheran Home & Rehabilitation Center located at 64 Hager Street in Buffalo.

Born in Buffalo in 1899, Mrs. Miller worked for many years at Hengerer’s Department Store making custom draperies. She and her husband, who worked in the Advertising Department of the Buffalo News, raised three sons, now all deceased.

Mrs. Miller received a proclamation from Congressman Jack Quinn honoring her. Joining the celebration on March 7th were her two grandsons, Mr. Robert G. Miller of Seffner, Florida; Mr. William Miller of Buffalo; and Ms. Roberta Richeal, her niece, as well as approximately 30 other friends and family members.
