Ms. Dee, a woman of many talents and roles, found her greatest joy in being called "Grammy" by her grandkids and great-grandkids – they were the light that illuminated her life.
Ms. Dee's warmth extended beyond her family, and her legendary homemade potato salad and cookies were a testament to the love she poured into everything she did. Her zest for life and love of adventure were reflected in her passion for travel – she was always ready for a new experience.
