Known as "Dot" to her family and friends, she graduated from Duquesne High School and went to work for the U.S. Navy. As World War II ended and servicemen began to return and reclaim their jobs, she moved to U.S. Steel Homestead Works, where she eventually became a confidential secretary, staying until her retirement.
Dorothy was a member of St. John the Baptist Ukrainian Catholic Church in McKeesport, where she and her husband enjoyed making bread and pyrohy for church sales.

Miller of Glenside, PA, Giancarlo Paone, Ronald G. Pullen, Jr., of Barboursville, WV, Jeffrey Price of Firestone, CO., and Justin, Jeff and John Miller and also numerous great-great nieces and nephews.
Her last years were made happier and easier by her devoted caregivers, Ronda Frederick and Jessica Gosnell.
In addition to her parents and husband, Dorothy was preceded in death by a niece, Donna McGuire, and nephew, Gary Miller; sisters, Gertrude Mann and Alberta Miller; and brothers and sisters-in-law, Albert (Bernadette), Robert (Ethel) and George (Betty) Miller.
