Doris Ann Miller

July 18, 1944 — July 1, 2022


Doris Ann Miller, 77, passed away peacefully on Friday, July 1, 2022, surrounded by family at Hospice House, Hutchinson.  She was born July 18, 1944, in Dearborn, Michigan to Hiram Ford and Doris Ann (Stobbe) Swabby.


She graduated high school from Windom, Kansas and attended Brown Mackie Business College in Salina, Kansas. 


She united in marriage with P. Russell Miller on March 5, 1966. They lived in Salina, Kansas for seven years where she worked at Dillon Optical and then Westinghouse Warehouse. She was blessed to have two children: Debra Ann and David Russell. 


In 1974, they moved to a country farm north of Little River, Kansas where she became a homemaker and once her children were in high school and junior high, she worked as a prep cook in several local cafes and later at a manufacturing company where she was injured on the job. This accident started the decline in health and mobility for her. 


Doris and Russell had moved to Hutchinson, Kansas for her last five years.


Doris's hobbies included: gardening, canning, sewing, raising chickens, and cooking. Doris enjoyed traveling to New York, Michigan, Missouri, Arizona, South Dakota and Montana with friends and family. Her pets, no matter the size, were her pride and joy, it did not matter if they were calves, dogs or cats. Doris enjoyed spring time the most, because she could pick her lilacs and peonies. She loved the smells.


Preceding her in death are her mother, Doris; father, Ford; brother, Kenneth; and step-mother, Wilma.


Survivors include her husband,  Russell of the home; two children, Debra and Tim Skalinder of Hutchinson, KS and David Miller and Brenda Barber of Wichita, KS; grandchildren, Dakota and Rebecca Skalinder, Alie and Andrew Durst, and Josie Miller; and three great-grandchildren, Kenna, Bryson and Delani.
