Edna M. Miller-Delzell, 85, passed away peacefully on January 17, 2017 at her son’s home in Lakemoor, Illinois. She was born on August 18, 1931 to the late John and the late Edna (nee Steers) Platt in Staten Island, NY, where she grew up with her dear sister Cecelia (John) Schaefer. She was the adoring wife of 48 years to Edward J. Miller until his death in September 2000, and later to Sterling Delzell, with whom she was married for one year until his death in September 2013. Sterling and Edna were both residents of Friendship Village for 7 years.

Edna (Sterling) was a loving step-grandmother to Will, Ben, and Molly Cain.

Edna worked as a nursing assistant in the Central DuPage Hospital nursery, dental assistant, art teacher, and technical associate at AT&T Bell Labs. She was a proud member of St. Irene’s Council of Catholic Women, K of C Ladies Auxiliary and Bell Labs Pioneers. Her passions included travel, Irish music, and living a faithful life. Her greatest joy was being with family.
