Miriam Kramer

Miriam Kramer

Born at Beth Israel Hospital in Manhattan on April 5, 1941 to Sol and Mollie Kramer, Miriam Kramer was raised in an Orthodox Jewish home in the Bronx. Born Malka Konig in Hungary, Miriam’s mother changed her name to Mollie King when she was a naturalized citizen in 1940. After completing a bachelor’s degree, Miriam worked as a paralegal in Manhattan. She continued paralegal work when she moved to Santa Fe in 1983 and also worked for the State of New Mexico. While living at one time in Woodstock, NY, Miriam was honored to have her artwork shown at the Woodstock Artists Association Gallery. She also had strong interests working with the dying. She retired to Taos in 2011. Since critical health issues required skilled nursing care last spring, she resided at the Taos Living Center. She succumbed to Covid-19 and passed on Tuesday, November 17, 2020. Beginning in 1975, Miriam was a student of Ram Dass and lived for a time in Queens with other devotees of Hanuman and Neem Karoli Baba. Ram Dass gave her the name Lakshmi Ma in the late 70’s and she is known by this name among many of her spiritual family. Miriam/Lakshmi Ma is not survived by any known relatives, yet she leaves behind many friends who enjoyed her laughter, humor, and stories.  Friends of Miriam Kramer have entrusted the care of their loved one to DeVargas Funeral Home of Taos.  www.devargastaos.com 1-866-657-4019
