She was born on March 13, 1934 in Poitiers, France to her parents, the late René and Marcelle (Soudé) Foucreau. Marcelle was preceded in death by her brother, Claude Foucreau, her husband, Sgt. Anthony Miller (U.S. Army), and her life companion, Frank (“Sunny”) Bibb, Jr.
Marcelle is survived by her sisters, Geneviève Pageaud (Claude, deceased) of France and Odile Millet (Henri) of France; brothers, René Foucreau (Monique) of France and Patrick Foucreau (Monique) of France; daughters, Kathleen Akil (Sam) of Sunderland, Maryland and Wendy Miller-Blancke (George) of Owings, Maryland; son, Alexander LoBianco of Dunkirk, Maryland; grandchildren, Matthew Curtin (Erica), Alyssa Blancke and Hannah Akil; great-grandchildren, Ava Curtin and Charlotte Curtin.
Marcelle married her late husband, Sgt. Anthony Miller (U.S. Army), and after living in various countries during military tours of duty, eventually made their home in the United States. After the death of her husband, Marcelle worked in the restaurant and retail industries, while raising her two daughters. She later met her life companion, Frank (“Sunny”) Bibb, Jr.
Family was Marcelle’s greatest love. She treasured her children and embraced every moment with them. In later life, she also helped raise her grandchildren, all of whom she loved dearly. She especially loved being Mémé to Matthew, Alyssa, Hannah, Ava, and Charlotte. She also enjoyed spending time with the family pets.
Marcelle was gracious and selfless. Her soul was full of kindness and her heart filled with unwavering and unconditional love for her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. She was a courageous woman who possessed strength beyond her body. Marcelle has gained her wings, and will be missed immensely.
Private viewing and mass will be held on November 16, 2020, at St. Anthony’s Catholic Church, North Beach, Maryland, followed by a private interment at Chesapeake Highlands Memorial Gardens, Port Republic, Maryland.
