Due to the recent outbreak of the Coronavirus, public officials have strongly recommended to keep Mary’s funeral services to family and close friends. We ask that if anyone is not feeling well to please stay home and get feeling better. Mary would have wanted her friends to be in a safe environment during this time of uncertainty. Her family understands and appreciates your thoughts and prayers.

A funeral Mass for Mary Miller, 94, of Dickinson will be 9:30 a.m., Tuesday, March 17, 2020 at St. Patrick’s Catholic Church in Dickinson with Father Bill Ruelle celebrating. Burial will take place in the North Dakota Veterans Cemetery, Mandan.

Visitation for Mary will be 1:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m., Monday, March 16, 2020 at Stevenson Funeral Home in Dickinson with a rosary and vigil service being held at 6:00 p.m.

Mary passed away Thursday, March 12, 2020 at Augusta Place in Bismarck surrounded by her family and friends.

Mary was born September 6, 1925 in Alexander, North Dakota to Nickolas and Loretto (Hastings) Rettig. She was sent to Cathedral High School in Crookston, MN to join the convent. Mary obtained her Nursing Degree at St. Peter and Paul School of Nursing. She worked for ten years in different hospitals in Minnesota before moving back to North Dakota. Mary worked for St. Joseph’s Hospital for 17 years and Dickinson Clinic for 14 years. She also volunteered for the Senior Center for 14 years. Mary married Christ Miller at St. Patrick’s Catholic Church in Dickinson on May 20, 1953. The couple was blessed with five children, Thomas, Joan, Rita, Timothy and Mary. Mary was a member of the Catholic Daughters, Diabetic Support Association, AARP, Coronary Support, Professional Business Women, and a VFW life member. She spent many hours knitting new born baby bonnets that were given out at the hospital. Mary enjoyed playing games with her grandchildren and was always the life of the party.

Mary’s family would like to thank the staff at Augusta Place Hoger Hills, for the wonderful love and care they gave to their mother.

Mary is survived by her son, Tim J. Miller of Riverdale, ND; daughters, Joan (Russ) Kostelecky of Dickinson, Rita (Tom) Hoff of Bismarck, and Mary (Mike) Jones of Mandan; grandchildren, Aaron (Sarah) Kostelecky, Tison Hoff, Kristin (Tony) Lere, Lora (Mike) Berger, Jesse Jones, Christopher Miller; great-grandchildren, Avry, Regan, Rylynn, Kyra, Owen, Ryan, Sophia; and sisters-in-law; Caroline Rettig and Eva Rettig.

She was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Christ R. Miller; son, Thomas; granddaughter, Melissa Hoff; brothers, Ambrose, Vincent, Gerald and Thomas; and infant sister.

In Lieu of flowers, family suggests donations be made to the North Dakota Veterans Cemetery.

I worked with Mary while she was in charge of the Senior Center in Dickinson. I was working with Southwestern District Health Unit and would be there all day once a month. Mary was such a pleasure to meet & work with. We visited at length about the "old days" of nursing. I had much respect for her common sense. God bless her & you are in my thoughts and prayers.

My condolences to the family at this time of loss. You and Mary will be in my prayers.
Through the information in the obituary I finally have learned how we are related.

Gma Miller and I shared our special hugs. One time I hugged her so hard I broke a rib. We always laughed about this when we were together. Grandma and I always enjoyed ice cream from the dairy barn. She was one of a kind and will be truly missed. I love you Grandma 💜
