Doris Lucille Miller, 98, of Walnut Creek, California, died peacefully at home on September 7, 2023. Born in Detroit, MI, Doris grew up in a large extended family and a community active in Jewish traditions. She was a brilliant student and started college at 16 years old. Doris graduated with a major in chemistry from Wayne State University where she met Arthur as he was finishing up his studies in Medical school. They married, started a family and moved to Chicago for Arthur’s professional career. Doris worked as a medical technician until the family grew and moved to Highland Park, IL. Doris was active in numerous school, arts and charitable activities in Highland Park and North Shore Chicago.

Doris and Arthur relocated to Ann Arbor, MI in 1969. After Arthur’s passing in 1971, Doris worked at Kitchen Port, excelling at a 20-year career as a retail purchasing and marketing manager for cookware. In Ann Arbor, she participated in a wide variety of clubs. After retiring, Doris ran the gift shop at Congregation Beth Israel.

Doris moved to Rossmoor in Walnut Creek, CA in 2011 to be close to family and friends and dedicated herself to an array of charitable and cultural pursuits.

Throughout the moves Doris made friends and created community everywhere. She enjoyed gatherings, cooking, gardening, travel, nature and museum outings, along with an unquenchable pursuit of knowledge. Doris was an avid reader, film and theater-goer and kept up with current events and technology. She was an artist, scientist, and “intellectual” to the core. Above all she was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, aunt, cousin and friend.

Beloved wife of the late Arthur Miller. Cherished mother of Elissa Ruth Miller, Madeline Sue Miller, and the late Cynthia May Miller. Treasured grandmother of Anika May Rice. Loving sister of the late Phyllis (the late Albert) Conn and the late Harvey David Lipton (the late Anita Rogers). Dear daughter of the late Samuel and the late Malviene Lipchinsky.
