Dorothy was the daughter of William and Lila Miller of Taunton and the youngest of five children. She grew up in Taunton and graduated from Taunton High School in 1948.

She was a beloved teacher and principal in the Raynham Schools for 33 years, and cherished each and every one of her students - remembering them all with great affection.
Dorothy dearly loved her community and was an avid volunteer throughout her life for the town of Raynham, serving the Historical Society, the Arts and Cultural Councils, the Food Pantry, Friends of the Library and the First Congregational Church, among many others.
Most of all, she had a heart of gold and was an amazing and loving wife, mother, and grandmother, and will be missed by all whose lives she touched.
