Walt Disney’s daughter Diane Disney Miller has passed away at the age of 79. Diane’s death was caused by complications from a fall.
Here’s a note from Bob Iger, the president and CEO of Disney:
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. She will be remembered for her grace and generosity and tireless work to preserve her father’s legacy.
Diane is Walt and Lillian Disney’s oldest daughter. She is survived by her husband Ronald, 7 children and 13 grandchildren. Our thoughts are with Diane’s family and friends during this very sad time.
