She was preceded in death by her siblings Bill, Wallace, Thelma, and Garnet Miller.
In 1938, Dorothy married Emmitt Aaron Harris. This marriage lasted until Aaron’s death in 1964. Dorothy remained single for the next fifty years.
She is survived by her son, John and his wife Kay, granddaughter Traci Petitt (Randy), great- granddaughters Courtney, Brittney, Kalie and Traci’s mother, Kathy Harris. Dorothy was loved by everyone she touched. She will be missed tremendously by her “adopted daughter” Charleen Carroll (Michael) and her “adopted grandchildren”, Michael, Jason, and Paula Carroll as well as Larry Elliott, Mary Smith, Karen Smith Grasso (Bob), Willie Weatherford (Sherilyn), Richard and July Whitlock.
We know mom is now in heaven with her new pain- free body and has already reunited with her parents, siblings, husband, and many friends. She has not seen her dad since she was four years old. She is now at peace.
