Mary Louise Daeger

December 26, 1921 — February 13, 2020

Mary Louise (Miller) Daeger, 98, Indianapolis, passed away peacefully February 13, 2020, at Aspen Trace in Greenwood. Mrs. Daeger was born December 26, 1921, in Indianapolis, to the late Louis and Dora (Henninger) Miller.

She graduated from Decatur Central High School and worked at Diamond Chain and Victor Temporaries through the years.

Mary had been a member of Sacred Heart, St. Roch Catholic Church, and the St. Roch Altar Society, as well as being a member of Our Lady of the Greenwood for many years. More recently, she was a member of St. Mark Catholic Church. Mary also enjoyed quilting, crocheting, reading, working puzzles, playing cards, and loved Bingo. She and her late husband of 67 years, Roland, were avid travelers and visited all 50 states and also several European countries. Mary always looked forward to the next grandchild’s sporting event or family gathering. She will be fondly remembered for her loving and caring nature.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Roland; son, Edward; siblings, Vernie Miller, Charlie Miller; and JoAnn “Jo” Herbertz; great grandchild, Guinn Johnston.
