On October 27, 2015, at the age of 88, God opened the doors of Heaven and welcomed another angel home.
Dorothy Miller was born on August 26, 1927 to Alf and Annie Ellison. She was united in marriage to Aaron Miler on May 25, 1943. She was a member of the First Baptist Church in Mena. She was blessed with two sons, Danny Miller on March 21, 1947 and David Miller on February 19, 1953.
Dorothy was preceded in death by her husband, Aaron; her sisters, Voise Watkins and Anna Cunningham; and her brother Darwin Ellison.
Most of her adult life she worked for the public which she enjoyed. She worked at Renova Shirt Factory, Thelma Heath’s Tip-to-Toe Beauty Salon, and Herod’s Department Store where she had the opportunity to purchase the beautiful clothes she loved. After retirement, she worked in genealogy research, which was her passion.
What was most important to her in life was family. She was a loving and caring Mother, Grandmother, and Great-Grandmother. She lived for Sunday Dinners at her house, which she cooked for as many as would come and her motto was “a little bit of sugar makes anything go down.”
She is survived by her son, Danny Miller and wife Carol, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, John Maddox and wife Mandy, Madison and Macy; Joshua Miller; Dax Miller and wife Rita, Andrew, and Presley; Matt Maddox and wife Kay, Tessa, Gwyneth, and Matthew; Scarlett Evert and husband Samuel, and Lan; Phil Peek and wife Kacie, Paisley, Preston, and Lyla.
Son David Miller and wife Pam, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, Jeremy Miller and wife Michelle, Ty, Mason, Kenzie, and Tucker; Damon Miller and wife Kim, Daeton, and Kypton; and one sister-in-law, Loretta Miller; numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, and many friends.
