Miriam was a loving outgoing person. She was a loving older sister who cared and assisted her parents with her siblings while they were at work. She had the ability to love and entertain family and friends. She never met a stranger and would give you the clothes off her back. Miriam was the BIGGEST/ smallest person you would ever meet. Although size didn’t matter to her she would genuinely speak her mind and love you at the same time. Miriam was blessed with three beautiful children, Nicole McCullum, Marie McCullum and Nicholas Tassin.
In May of 1994, Miriam relocated to Tulsa, Oklahoma to join her mother and family. Although Miriam was baptized in early childhood she later joined Northside Peoria Church of Christ where she was also baptized to reconfirm her love for the Lord. Miriam was a chef by design.
