During the period from 1930 to 1946, in addition to raising a son and twin daughters she served as an electrical engineering consultant and analyst, and she was active in founding the Wichita Section of the American Institute of Electrical Engineers. After their move to Colorado in 1946, Roland and Lottye Miner established the consulting and analysis firm of Miner and Miner, a firm in which Lottye Miner maintained an official position for thirty years. She also served on the school board in Greeley for a period during the 1960s. After her retirement she remained a consultant for Miner and Miner until her death in 1989.
