Born in Mahanoy City, she was a daughter of the late Michael and Veronica Wargo Kravetz. She was of the Catholic Byzantine faith.

Miriam A. Heim, 86, formerly of Pitman passed away Wednesday, May 10, 2017 at Community General Osteopathic Hospital, Harrisburg.

She was a member of Zion E.C. Church Pitman, PA and served as chairman of the Missions Committee until moving from Pitman due to health concerns in 2015.

She worked along side her husband on the family farm and also worked at the Pitman Post Office for many years.

Through the years Miriam developed a passion in several areas that made her the person we loved. First was her love for the Lord and His work. This was her primary passion and influenced all areas of her life. Second was her passion for Lamar and her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. She always took time for family. Finally, was her love of the Mahantongo Valley. She loved the rural atmosphere and it's fitting to be buried in her beloved valley till she is resurrected with the trumpet call of the Lord.
