The Baltimore Sun

Sister Teresiana Miller, who had been principal of three parochial schools, died of dementia Aug. 26 at her order's motherhouse in Aston, Pa. She was 94.

Born Agnes Irma Miller in Baltimore and raised near Patterson Park, she was a graduate of the old St. Elizabeth of Hungary Commercial School and had worked as a stenographer and assistant bookkeeper with the old Baltimore Tube Co.

She entered the Sisters of St. Francis of Philadelphia in 1932 and took the name Teresiana. She earned a Bachelor of Science degree at Mount St. Mary's College in Emmitsburg and a master's degree in administration from Catholic University of America.

She taught at the Catholic High School of Baltimore, the old St. Paul Parochial School in East Baltimore and at St. Clement Maria Hofbauer in Rosedale before being named principal of Our Lady of Mount Carmel School in Middle River. She held the same post at St. Anthony School in Gardenville and at Immaculate Conception School in Towson, where she served until 1985.

She also held posts in Wilmington, Del., and in Washington, and spent the last decade at Assisi House in Aston.

A Mass was offered Friday.

Survivors include a sister, also in the same religious order, Sister Ann Mercedes Miller, also of Aston.
