We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Cantelmi Long Funeral Home
Dorothy E. Miller, 90, died at home on June 18. She was born in 1932, attended Liberty High School, and was a life-long resident of Bethlehem. She was the daughter of the late George and Frances (Holecz) Dodig. She was the widow of Rodney Gustave Miller, to whom she was wed for 51 years until his death in 2004.
She spent her life raising her three children and especially loved her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Dottie loved to travel, enjoyed the arts, and was always eager to meet strangers and hear their stories. A member of the Bethlehem Steel Club for over 60 years, she was known for her “daily dive” off the board at the pool, a tradition she continued until her 86th year, usually to much surprise and applause.
A faithful member of the West Bethlehem Congregation of Jehovah’s Witnesses for many years, she was devoted to serving her God, Jehovah, and enjoyed telling others about him.
In addition to her children Rodney G. (Deborah) of Phillipsburg, NJ, Jay J. of Willimantic, CT, and Elizabeth M. Evanick (George) of Canton CT, she is survived by her beloved grandchildren David (Beth), Timothy (Amy), Derek, and Jason (Ileana), and great-grandchildren Dallas, Tristan, and HarlieAnn.
Dottie was also preceded in death by her brothers, Michael, Rudolph, George, and Stephen Dodig, and her sisters, Frances Talaber, Marie Trilli, and Sophie Martin.
