Dortha married Chester A. Miller on November 26, 1938 in Caldwell Idaho and they had one daughter Shirley Fae Miller born September 6th 1943.
Dortha and Chester later moved to Emmett for 9 years finally settling in Nampa.

She was preceded in death by her husband Chester, Father Fred, mother Irene, daughter Shirley Farrar, and siblings Kenny, Bernie, Joe, Anna Mae (Ginger). She is survived by a sister Maxine Borchert, grandson Rodney Farrar, son in law Gary Farrar, and several nieces and nephews.
Dortha worked at Birds Eye, which was close enough that she walked to work, Bakers Flower Shop which was her most favorite job, and she did Ironing in her home for a few special people.
A memorial contribution to Pet Haven Humane Society, 333 Orchard Ave., Nampa, Idaho 83651, in her name, would please Dortha very much. Her love for cats was known quite well by all.
