Corsicana Daily Sun

Corsicana —


Dalton (Sonny) and Doris Miller married in Edgewater, CO., on Aug. 30, 1952.  During their 60 years of marriage, the couple continue to create countless cherished memories with their three daughters — Denice, Deana, and Darcel — their sons-in-law, and more than 30 grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Dalton was born in Windber, PA. and Doris was born in Kansas City, MO. The stars aligned in 1952 when they met at a roller-skating rink in Denver, CO, dated, fell in love and were married shortly thereafter. Dalton retired from the United States Air Force in 1993 after serving for over 34 yrs. Doris was a nurse in hospitals in Ft. Worth for 27 years.

Dalton’s career took the Miller family from Colorado to Florida, Mississippi and eventually to Texas where they finally settled and continue to reside for more than 50 years. Dalton also served overseas in Okinawa, Japan, South Korea, Germany and Turkey as a photographer for the Air Force while Doris stayed behind and supported her husband while raising their three daughters.

Dalton and Doris continue to make lasting memories with extended circle of family and friends at their home in Kerens, Texas.  They are avid gardeners, ice cream connoisseurs, and “piddlers.” Besides sharing their love for each other and family, the two have shared and instilled a strong love of God and country into their children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

They celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary with their family and friends at their home on Richland Chambers Reservoir.
