Obituary for Phyllis A. Miller

Phyllis A Miller was born the daughter of Arthur & Marion Atzenhoffer in 1921 in Akron, Ohio. She died on November 22 in Davis, California at the age of 95. She was raised in the Midwest and received her Master’s degree in Psychology at the University of Illinois. She went on to become a guidance counselor at Cornell University in Ithaca, NY.

She met her late husband Clarence, an Economics Professor, in 1950 and they were married 51 years until his death in 2002. Together they traveled to and raised a family in: Venezuela, Ethiopia, Tanzania, Pakistan, and Bangladesh, when they were not at their home in Los Altos, CA.

Phyllis’ experiences overseas and her keen wit made her a great conversationalist, and she enjoyed hosting parties, dinners, and guests with an international flair. She is survived by three sons: Art, Leonard, and Ken; her daughter-in-law Joan and two grandchildren, Michelle and Charlie.
