Kathleen "Kathy" Miller Obituary
KATHLEEN (Kathy) MILLER (1924-2012) KATHY MILLER, popular ROP Office Occupations Teacher at Rubidoux High School for many years, passed away peacefully with grace and dignity on October 6, 2012, in Garden Grove, California. She was 88. Kathy was born on February 1, 1924, and grew up in Sandusky, Ohio. According to her son, Mark Miller, she died from the side effects of brain cancer radiation treatment. Mrs. Miller was a woman of many talents and interests. She was gentle, dynamic, outgoing, and fun. She resonated with people of all ages, ethnicities, and cultural backgrounds. She had an open mind and heart and loved both to listen and converse, especially about politics. She had a dry sense of humor and was clever at telling stories that displayed her wit, experience, and wisdom. At Rubidoux High School, Kathy trained many of the district's secretaries and ran an exemplary live office model for Riverside County Office of Education. She made sure her students dressed appropriately, never allowing questionable office attire such as spaghetti strap tops or revealing blouses. Many of her students became successful secretaries throughout Riverside County. Some of her students are still employed in the Jurupa Unified School District. Mrs. Miller started working at Rubidoux High School in September, 1965, and retired in June, 1989. She received a bachelor of arts degree in business education in 1965 from La Sierra College and a master of arts degree in business education in 1971 from La Sierra University. Prior to moving to Laguna Woods, Mrs. Miller lived in Moreno Valley and was married to the late Bill Miller, Assistant Superintendent of the Moreno Valley Unified School District. She is survived by one son, Mark Miller, of Costa Mesa, California. Her oldest son, Douglas Miller, passed away two years ago.
