They raised their son in Glenolden where they lived in their forever home. The loss of their grandson, Mark was a very deep loss to Miriam and family.

Miriam enjoyed her relationship with her granddaughter Bernadette Cohen greatly as she was a strong grandparent to both Mark and Bernadette. In her later years, she enjoyed her time with Bernadette as a companion and confidant.
