Today, November 19, 2013, we lost an important legend in Disney history. Diane Marie Disney-Miller passed away at age 79. The cause of her death is said to be related from a fall she had back in September.
Born on December 18, 1933, she was the inspiration, along with her sister Sharon, for Disneyland Park in California. She was the Champion of the Disney Hall design. She organized the development of The Walt Disney Family Museum, which opened in San Francisco in 2009. Diane also played an integral role in the development of the renowned Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles.
Diane was the wife of former Disney CEO, Rob Miller. She had seven children and 13 grandchildren. She was a loving and caring daughter, wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, mentor, and philanthropist who was enthusiastic supporter of the arts.
Diane Disney-Miller carried her father’s legacy with dignity, grace, and devotion. She will be missed and forever remembered as one of the most memorable Disney legends who truly has left her legacy.
In loving memory of Diane Disney-Miller
December 18, 1933-November 19, 2013
