Tributes for

Miller, Diane Powell

Miller, Diane Powell, 61, passed away peacefully in her home on June 27th, 2013. Over the previous month she had been battling pancreatic cancer on the heels of a years earlier battle with Lymphoma. She was surrounded by family at the time of her passing.
Diane was born in Norman, Oklahoma on March 11, 1952 to Reed Madsen Powell and Kathleen Richards Powell. She was the second of five children (Reed, Jr., Laurie, Blythe and Susan). Diane's youth was filled with adventure as her fathers profession took her to live in all of Oklahoma, Guatemala, Massachusetts, Ohio and California. After she graduated from Cal Poly Pomona, she met the love of her life, Craig Miller, whom she married on September 7th, 1977 in the Salt Lake City Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.
Diane and Craig settled in Orange, California where they lived for 36 years and raised two children, Matthew Craig Miller and Megan Diane Miller. Her life was dedicated to her family, both living and dead. She loved to be with and learn about family through frequent gatherings, phone calls and genealogy. Aside from her family there was no greater priority for Diane than her love for her Savior, Jesus Christ, and her Heavenly Father. She was a devout member of her church and active in every opportunity she could find to serve others.
A funeral service was held for Diane at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, 9801 Newport Ave., Santa Ana, CA on Saturday, June 29th. She was laid to rest at the Mountain View Memorial Park, 3115 East 7800 South, Cottonwood Heights, UT on Saturday, July 6th. Diane is survived by her husband, Craig; son, Matthew; daughter, Megan; along with two grandchildren on the way. She will be sorely missed.
