To her friends, she was known as “Miss America,” because of her cheerful personality and her bounce when she walked.
Miranda Dermanelian, 25, liked to try on hats and take silly pictures. The mother of two was remembered as bubbly, and as someone who had been through heartache and tragedy, but found a way to stay positive.
Dermanelian died March 14 after driving into Fall Creek near Binford Boulevard and Allisonville Road in Indianapolis. The Indiana Department of Natural Resources is investigating the accident.
