She taught me to twirl a baton and was the light that led me to the nursing profession. Prayers for peace and comfort for us in the days ahead. Love you all!

  2. CandleImageI knew Jerry and Doris from Morada and such a beautiful couple. Doris will be missed dearly.

  3. Jerry, I am so sorry for your loss. Doris was such a nice, wonderful and fun lady. My deepest sympathy to you and your family.

  4. CandleImageWhat can I say about a wonderful, warm and loving lady who was not just my sister-in-law, but a real part of the Miller family. Doris was more like a sister to us. To my dear brother Jerry, my nephew Jeff and my niece Pam and their families, though you all will feel a big void in your lives, remember and cherish all of the good memories and know that Doris loved all of you so much and that she got to see a big part of this world and had a wonderful life because of all of you.
