IN MEMORANDUM DIANE DISNEY MILLER
Diane Disney Miller, Walt Disney's daughter,
NAPA, Calif. (AP) — Diane Disney Miller, Walt Disney's daughter and one of his inspirations for building the Disneyland theme park, has died at her Northern California home. She was 79.
Confirmed by The Walt Disney Co. The cause was complications from a fall, said Andi Wang, spokeswoman for the Walt Disney Family Museum.
"As the beloved daughter of Walt Disney and one of his inspirations for creating Disneyland, she holds a special place in the history of The Walt Disney Co. and in the hearts of fans everywhere," Robert A. Iger, the company's president and CEO, said in a statement. "She will be remembered for her grace and generosity and tireless work to preserve her father's legacy."
Miller, the eldest daughter of Walt and Lillian Disney, was born Dec. 18, 1933. In later life, she remembered her father as a man who was caring and patient with his children.

I can only say that Annette was a true friend and celebrity whose kindness knew no boundaries and was a wonderful human being. I loved taking pictures of her at the New Orleans Italian-American Parade and cavorting with her at the airport and the famous Court of Two Sisters. We had spaghetti together and a VO and Seven toast while here in the Big Easy! To suffer the wrath of Multiple Sclerosis for more than 25-years was heroic. I will miss her as a human being and second as a mega star discovered by Walt Disney. The photos are copyright taken by me and will show the damages of Katrina. It is a miracle these photos survived under murky water for over a four month period! This in itself is a miracle. .America's Sweetheart- rest in peace as we play her hit "O Dio Mio" (O MY God) in her passing. Memoriam LOGO copyright Funicello Website and you can go to her site annetteconnection.com to donate or buy some of her adorable memorabilia! A prayer goes out to her 80-year-old husband Glen Holt who took loving care of America's Pineapple Princess until her passing. What courage and devotion. !~~~~~~~~~
