On Saturday, October 10, our beloved Diana, wife, mother, sister, aunt, took her first breath of celestial air and began singing in God Almighty’s eternal choir. Born February 15, 1948, in the town of Hudson, Michigan, she was the daughter of James Denver II and Virginia Driskill. She graduated valedictorian of Hudson High School in 1966 and salutatorian of Sienna Heights College in 1970, majoring in Spanish. She married Thomas R. Miller on October 5, 1968. They lived in New York, Ohio, Florida, and Wisconsin. They returned to Wadsworth, Ohio in 1984 with their two children and became members of the CMA (Freshwater) Church. She was with Mary Kay Cosmetics for 34 years, becoming an Executive Senior Sales Director. Diana raised Irish Terriers at her Sugarbush Kennel for 15 years, many of whom were shown around the country and all placed in loving homes.
Diana is survived by her husband of 47 years, Tom; her children, Matthew Todd (Jennifer) and Elizabeth Ann; five granddaughters; brother, James Denver III (Patricia) and sisters Deborah Kay and Merri Ann; in-laws Richard & Ann Dilyard; and countless friends and family. She was preceded in death by her parents, brother, Todd Arnold, and his wife, Marsha.
