Margaret Miller Elliott ’33

Margaret Miller Elliott ’33, August 13, 1997, in San Angelo, Texas. After graduating from Reed, Margaret went to Galveston, Texas, to take a job with the YMCA. There she met and married her husband, Morris, an Episcopal clergyman. In 1949, the couple moved to San Angelo, Texas where her husband became rector of the Episcopal church. For most of her life, Margaret was a homemaker and played an active role in the church. She and her husband also volunteered their time serving on numerous boards and working with community organizations. In 1969, she was persuaded to take a job as a librarian with a junior high school, and she spent the next three summers taking library courses at Texas Women’s University Library School. In 1972, illness forced her to resign from her position with the library. After her husband’s retirement in 1974, Margaret and Morris traveled in the U.S. and abroad, and Margaret took several art history courses. She is survived by a daughter; a brother, Lewis Miller ’39; and a sister, Kathryn Miller ’26.
