Lois Miller was a vital part of the Port Orford Community and documented much of its beauty and history with her ever-present camera.
Lois will best be remembered through her legacy of art — photography, paintings, tile mosaics, and wood carvings. Lois’s award-winning wildlife photography has been published in dozens of books and magazines, and featured in numerous gallery exhibits throughout the country. Locally, she provided wedding and senior portrait photography and coverage for events such as the Port Orford Jubilee and the Cape Blanco Music Festival.
She enjoyed bird watching, especially at Paradise Point, the Port of Port Orford, and in Costa Rica. Her greatest joy were her grandchildren, who absolutely adored her.
Below is a video created by Nathan Malamud in 2019 about the Lois Miller Memorial Scholarship that was established in her name by The Port Orford Rotary.
Her annual bird calendar is published every year by her daughter to raise proceeds for the Lois Miller Scholarship fund. They are available here.
