Virginia Beach – Sigridur “Sigga” Miolla was called home on 29 October 2013. She was born on 30 December 1926 in Westman Islands, Iceland. She was preceded in death by her husband of 35 years Joseph L. Miolla and her 3 brothers and 3 sisters.

During her 86 years, she was a homemaker, worked in child care, a salesclerk in Keflavik Iceland, at Busch Gardens and volunteered with the Red Cross in Guam helping to bring Vietnam Vets home. Her most cherished job, however, was taking care of her great grandkids Megan and Adam when they were young. She was also known as Amma’s Doggie Daycare for our family dogs Pepper and Luigi.
A Memorial Celebration of Sigga’s Life will be held on Saturday, November 9th, 2 p.m. at Marian Manor the place that she considered her “other” home. Family and friends are welcome to join us for this celebration of her life.
