Dorothy Miller Cameron
She was born April 9, 1918, in Panguitch, Utah to James Lazell Miller and Ruth Agnes Reid. She grew up and graduated from high school in Panguitch and married her high school sweetheart, Garth Cameron, on June 19, 1936 in the Salt Lake Temple. They made their home in Panguitch for several years and then moved to Flagstaff and later to Kingman, Arizona for Garth’s work. Their final move was to Las Vegas, Nevada where they lived and raised their family for the next 40 years. During that time she worked as a checker at Vegas Village Shopping Center until she retired and Garth operated a truck stop.
She was an active member of the LDS Church, serving in different organizations. Garth and Dorothy were called to work in the St. George Temple and enjoyed the time they spent there together. When the Las Vegas temple opened she was called as an ordinance worker where she served until she suffered a stroke in 1992 and was unable to continue.
Five years after Garth passed away in 1988, Dorothy moved to Logandale, Nevada so she could be close to her daughter and sons and extended family members. She loved to read and was a wonderful seamstress. She always prepared plenty of good food for her family to enjoy. She loved to return to Panguitch and visit friends and relax in the cabin near Panguitch Lake. The last years of her life, she always had a smile and a delight in her heart to see family and visit with friends.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Garth Cameron; a grandson, Rich Cameron; two brothers, Reid (Opal) Miller of Panguitch, and Dan (LaRue) Miller of Seaside, California; and one sister, Veda (Woody) Yung of Panguitch. Her youngest brother Nyal and his wife Faye Miller still reside in Cedar City, Utah. She is survived by her four children, Bruce (Sandy) Cameron, Gary (Ellen) Cameron, Sue (Bill) Johnson, all of Logandale, Nevada, and Ken (Deb) Cameron of Las Vegas, Nevada. She had 14 grandchildren, 31 great grandchildren, and 7 great great grandchildren, whom she dearly loved and enjoyed. She will be greatly missed and forever loved and remembered by her family.
