GLOUCESTER — Stacey A. (Brewster) Miller, 47, a resident of Gloucester, passed away peacefully surrounded by her loving children on Monday, November 20, 2017 at Addison Gilbert Hospital in Gloucester.

Born on April 23, 1970 in Stoneham, Stacey was raised in Medford.

Stacey was an interesting human being. She loved whole heartedly and always had a twinkle of mischief in her eyes. The ocean was her second home bringing her inspiration and peace now that she can finally go home.

She wasn’t always the easiest person to get along with but she would give the shirt off her back to anyone who needed it. She was hard-headed to a fault which she passed on to her two children Trinity Eriksen-Miller (also known as S.A.) and Darnell Eriksen-Miller (also known as PITA). 

Though not on paper, she adopted and became like a second parent to many. Inviting those in off the street to join our small and makeshift family for the better. She made mistakes just as any other but she was always a prized fighter in her friends and her family’s corner. 

There isn’t enough paper or space in the world to express how much the world has become a dimmer place in her passing. Nor to express how much she was loved or how much she will be missed. We pray she finds peace with the loved ones we’ve lost before, brightening up heaven with her smile. 

Forever in our minds.  Forever in our hearts.  May the angels enjoy the fruits of your labor in the kitchen and the magic you produced with your hands. Your laughter will forever be ringing in our ears.

Stacey was the devoted mother of Darnell R. Eriksen-Miller of Gloucester, Trinity A. Eriksen-Miller of Medford, and to her four legged children, Stella Hime Miller and Leo Scooby Doo Miller. Daughter of Sharon Brewster of Medford, and the late Thomas Brewster. Sister of Eric Brewster of N.C. Beloved niece of Debra Eriksen of Melrose, Joanne Monahan of Townsend, and the late Donald Eriksen. Adored granddaughter of the late Mary and Roy Eriksen. Caring aunt of Ashley, LiAnn and Paul.

Relatives and friends are invited to gather in honor of Stacey’s life for her Funeral Service at the Melrose Church of the Nazarene, 2 Short St., Melrose on Saturday, Dec. 2 at 11 a.m. Donations in memory of Stacey may be made to a charity of your choice. For directions or online tribute visit
