Diane Disney Miller, daughter of Walt Disney and a philanthropist who bucked powers-that-be in Los Angeles to keep architect Frank Gehry on the job during a crucial phase of planning the city’s new concert hall, has died. She was 79.
Miller died Tuesday at her home in Napa, Calif., from complications of a fall in September, according to close family friend Richard Greene, who co-wrote a biography of her father. ...
Walt's oldest daughter was not a Disney who worked inside her father's business. But she married a man, Ron Miller, who was employed by Walt Disney Productions for decades and was for a time its chairman.
She leaves behind seven children and thirteen grand-children. Also one great-grand-daughter.
