Donna “Dee” Miller

Donna Denison “Dee” Miller, 83, died peacefully in her sleep on Sunday, Nov. 15, 2015, surrounded by family at Davis Healthcare.

Dee was born in Chicago, IL. on June 3, 1932 to Harold Denison and Helen Bloomquist Denison.

Dee trained as a legal secretary and pursued a successful career in that field. She had a beautiful smile that could light up a room. Her sharp wit and quick sense of humor made her a delightful companion. She was singularly devoted to her family and was a loyal and caring friend. Her kindness and her loving spirit will be missed by all who knew her.

She was preceded in death by her husband, W.T. Miller, Jr., her daughter, Christine Dodge, her step daughter, Karen Stone and her sister, Patty. She is survived by her son and daughter in law, Scott and Nancy Miller of Burnsville, VA., her son in law, Nick Dodge of Wilmington, her daughter and son in law, Patty and Scott Rader of Wilmington, her grandchildren Erin, Nurry Leigh, Brett, and Cara and her stepsons, Andrew and Tom Miller and their families.

The family wishes to extend their deepest gratitude to the incredible staff at the Walker Taylor household at the Davis Community who provided the most compassionate care and never failed to let Dee and her family know that she was cared for, cared about, and appreciated.
The knowledge that these good people were there for Dee was a tremendous comfort.

Arrangements were entrusted to Wilmington Funeral & Cremation, 1535 S.41st Street Wilmington, NC 28403. 910.791.9099.

    Donna Miller was a resident here at the Davis Community and from what I hear always had a caring spirit. Ms. Miller will be missed at The Davis Community and I pray she was happy up until the end. Now she is in a better place where her kind heart and body is in full bloom. No more sickness, no more pain, no more depending on others she is now truly happy. We may miss her here on earth but God loves her more in Heaven.

    Patty and family, May the love and dedication that you showed your mom bring you comfort during this time. So loved the times we shared things that were going on with our moms. Keep the memories of your mom close in your heart.
