GUILDERLAND – Antoinette Marie Miller (nee Caimano), passed away quietly on April 25, 2018 in Albany, N.Y. at the age of 95. “Etta” was born June 13, 1922 in Albany into her family of five sisters and two brothers. She was married to George Norman Miller of Albany (1922-1971) in 1944. Antoinette worked for the IRS after graduating from Cathedral High School, transferring to the Army Air Corps during WWII.
