Miriam Slemmons, 97, passed away Saturday, March 25th in Houston, Texas. Miriam Slemmons was born March 26, 1925, the elder daughter of Chester Lycan Slemmons and Winifred Hoult Slemmons. She was preceded in death by her sister, Dorothy S. Rogers. Miriam is survived by two nephews, George and Carol Rogers and Steve Rogers and Terri Beals, and their children and grandchildren.

Miriam graduated from Chrisman High School in 1942 and the University of Colorado in 1946. She was a member of Alpha Chi Omega. She taught English in Pueblo, Colorado, Baker, Oregon, and Niles, Michigan to high school students.
