Marianne (Miller) Briscoe

December 14, 1954 — March 28, 2022


Marianne Miller Poston Briscoe, 67, Roann, Indiana, slipped into eternal rest on Monday, March 28, 2022. She was born to E. Woodrow (“Woody”) and Elizabeth Stouffer Miller on December 14, 1954 in Wabash.

Marianne graduated from Southwood High School in 1973, and then married Louie Poston. They were blessed with two sons, Ian (Candy) Poston and Seth (Emily) Poston both of North Manchester. She later married Michael Briscoe.

Marianne attended IPFW, receiving an Associate’s degree, and later earned her realtor’s license and worked as a realtor in North Manchester. She also served a term as the Director of the Wabash County Mental Health Association. Marianne was an avid gardener and enjoyed being outdoors, especially fond of our rivers where she sometimes canoed. Because she loved antiques, she was often found at local estate auctions, ever eager to find that one special piece for her collection. There was nothing she enjoyed more than spending time with her many friends and family, frequently traveling to visit those far away. She also enjoyed a good argument with her sisters.

Marianne is survived by her sons, Ian (Candy) Poston, North Manchester, Seth (Emily) Poston, North Manchester; four grandchildren, Rory Poston, Holden Poston, Evelyn Poston, and Abram Poston; two sisters, Beth (Dave) Purcell, St. Louis and Susan Fagin, North Manchester; sister-in-law, Marilyn Miller, Wabash; nieces and nephews, Megan Purcell, St. Louis; Erica (Eike) Purcell, Snowmass, Colorado; Jody Purcell, Kirkwood, Missouri; Brian (Janet) Evans, Lagro; Trent (Diane) Miller, Wabash; Brad Miller, Wabash, Andrew Miller, Los Angeles, California; Matthew Miller, Colorado; Elizabeth (Lisa Mackie) Fagin, New York; Adam (Anne) Fagin, Silver Spring, Maryland. She also leaves many loving cousins and dear friends. She was preceded in death by her parents, and two brothers, Tom Miller and Dan Miller.
