Rose C. Miller

Born in Sharon Hill, she was the daughter of the late Francis J. O’Reilly and the late Frances Quinn O’Reilly.

She was a devout Catholic and was a member of Assumption BVM parish in West Grove.

Rose will always be remembered for her love for everyone. She treated everyone the same and warmed them with her wonderful smile. The family enjoyed hearing Rose’s childhood stories of how she was a tomboy and would scare her childhood friends — mainly the boys — with her antics. She remarked often, “I am not a sissy” and “God knew what he was doing when he gave me all boys so I never had to raise a teenage girl.”

Frank and Rose would often say, “not bad for a couple of concrete kids” at the conclusion of their stories. Rose’s three favorite words were “It’s all good”. We will miss her terribly but find comfort in knowing that she and Frank are together again.

The family would like to thank the staff of Willow Tree Hospice for their care and compassion in her final days.

She is survived by her 7 sons, Joseph of Phoenixville, Michael (Dale) of Parkesburg, John (Nancy) of Nottingham, Christopher (Dawn) of Gilbertsville, Stephen (Ella) of Newark, Paul (Lora) of Oxford and Robert of Avondale. In addition, she is survived by 18 grandchildren, 6 great grandchildren and several nieces and nephews.

Due to the Covid 19 restrictions, a Memorial Mass and burial will be held at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, a contribution may be made to the charity of your choice.
