Fannie Cutler Miles


Mrs. Fannie Cutler Miles passed away Sept. 9, 2018, in Virginia Beach, Va. She was born April 15, 1924 in Nassawadox, Va., to the late Stella Cutler Simpson and Leonard C. Cutler. She was predeceased by her husband Richard Eugene Miles (Eugene) and son Bryan.

She is survived by her son, Richard “Dicky” Miles ,and his wife, Miriam “Cookie”; grandchildren, Amy Bosher (Jason), Melissa, and Scott (Melissa A.); and greatgrandchildren, Saderiah, Haley, Jason Jr., Hunter, Luke, Coltrane, and Molly. She is also survived by her son, Harley Miles (Jeanne); their son, Scott (Julie); their daughter, Leigh Catherine (Ningy), and husband, Matt; grandchildren, Jefferson, Lorelei, and Alexander; and many nieces and nephews.

Mrs. Miles was one of seven children. She and her husband were born and raised on the Eastern Shore and grew up in Willis Wharf. Then the family resided in Exmore, Cape Charles, Cheriton, and Belle Haven. In the early sixties, the family moved to Salisbury, Md. Her husband, Eugene, died in 1981 and son, Bryan, died in 1991. She had a great passion for antiques and politics. She resided at Pine Bluff and, for the past couple of years, was in and out of nursing homes. Once she arrived at Beth Sholom Village, in Virginia Beach, she blossomed. Her final year with Richard and Cookie, the grandchildren, and great-grandchildren was a wonderful blessing. She was able to spend and enjoy more time with everyone.

We would like to thank David Abraham and all of his staff at Beth Sholom Village, especially the staff in the blue unit who was very attentive. We would also like to thank all the staff at Freda Gordon Hospice for their loving care. We would like to recognize fellow patients, Charlean, Joyce, and Linda for their support and friendship, and thank Mary for her many prayers. Also, we would like to acknowledge Cantor Flax, who was attentive to our mother and well-liked by her.
