Barbara Ann (Brown) Miles 82 years old of Greenwich passed away peacefully on July 9, 2021 at Nathaniel Witherell Nursing Home. Barbara was born on February 11, 1939 to the parents of Edward and Catherine (Wagner) Brown. She was married to Robert Lewis Miles on January 11, 1958 and they were married 63 years. Barbara attended Greenwich High School.
Barbara was a wonderful wife, mom, mother-in-law, nana, sister, aunt, and friend. She worked at several job positions before settling at Union Trust Bank and then retired from there. She continued as bookkeeper for her husband’s landscape business until they both retired. Barbara truly cared about family. She enjoyed going to the family softball games to cheer them on, watch her husband fish and even watched the NY Rangers with him. She continued the tradition going to her Grandson Shane’s football games.
Her favorite show was Wheel of Fortune and liked to take family trips to Lake George. Barbara was a kind, caring and loyal person. In January, 2008 her only grandchild was born, Shane Patrick O’Connor. Shane was her pride and joy from the moment he was placed in her arms. Her world revolved around Shane and the close bond they had together.
Barbara is predeceased by her husband Robert who passed away May 6, 2020, her parents Edward and Catherine, her brother Henry (his wife Marie), brother Edward, sister Dorothy (husband Cas), and her son Robert Miles Jr. who passed away on June 4, 2013. Barbara is now together with her husband, son and family.
Surviving is her daughter Lisa (Miles) O’Connor, her husband John and their son Shane of Cos Cob, daughter-in-law Sandi Miles of Norwalk, sister-in-law Jean Brown of New Milford, and many nieces and nephews who she loved so much.
There will be a graveside memorial service on Thursday, July 15 at 11:00 at St. Mary’s Cemetery, 399 North Street, Greenwich, CT. All are welcome to join us in celebration of her life.
