Here is what the family have shared about Miriam:
Miriam Lucille Fields passed away on Friday, June 17 at the age of 80. Miriam was born in Chicago, Illinois along with her twin sister Judith, to parents Robert and Irene Bower. In 1966, Miriam graduated from Stritch School of Medicine at Loyola University. Miriam was one of four women to graduate in her class of 82 fellow Doctors. Miriam moved to Boulder in 2003 to be closer to her children and was welcomed by the Bonai Shalom community. Miriam was a loving mother to daughter, Amy, son Adam, son-in-law, Joe and daughter-in-law, Emily. She was also the beloved Bubbe to grandkids Sam, Max, Cooper and Brody. She was happiest spending time with family and watching her grandkids play hockey. Miriam was an intelligent, caring, resilient woman, a true inspiration to her family and friends. Her beautiful memory will be cherished.
Hamakom y’nachem – comfort and strength to Amy and Joe, Adam and Emily and to and grandchildren Sam, Max, Cooper and Brody and all family and friends who will miss her.
