Daphne Miller Memorial Fund

Fund Type: Family Support

Willoughby Hills, OH

Fundraiser ends on February 21, 2023

Daphne died suddenly from an apparent asthma attack, leaving behind her partner Betty and their two young children. Your donation helps the family with the cost of the funeral and navigating the difficult time ahead.

Daphne Miller age 54, beloved partner for 9 years of Betty Jacobs; loving mother of Oliver and Penelope and step-mother of Sara; cherished daughter of Thomas (deceased) and Wanda (nee Harvey) Miller; dearest sister of Courtney; daughter-in-law of Catherine Ashburn and dear sister-in-law of Geneva McCormack.

Daphne was born on January 6, 1969 and died suddenly from an apparent asthma attack on January 21, 2023. She lived in Concord for the last 8 ½ years after residing in Wickliffe for the previous 10 years. Daphne grew up in Dover and graduated from Dover High School. She went on to attend Muskingum College where she earned a degree in marketing. She was the office manager at FTTB Cleaners in Kirtland. Before working there, she worked at the Lake County YMCA in marketing for several years.

She co-founded LGBTQ+ Allies Lake County with her partner Betty, where she was also president of the board. A committed volunteer, Daphne also served as the treasurer and secretary of the board for the Lake County History Center.

Daphne was an avid reader and enjoyed all movies. However, Daphne’s greatest joy was her family. Being a mom was the only thing she knew she wanted to be. She drove Oliver and Penelope to school every day and sang them Twinkle Twinkle Little Star every night.  Daphne put the people she loved first. She was everyone’s cheerleader and made everyone around her better. She is remembered as being the most empathetic and caring person. She only knew how to love with her full heart.  She will be missed by all.
