Dee was the perfect neighbor and friend. She always made me laugh with her quick wit and she was generous, sweet and kind to all. She loved God, Church, Family and the last sweet dog God put in her care, Pretty. I’m saddened that I won’t see her again but I feel like she has gone home to our Father and is safe in His embrace. And that she is now reunited with those she loved and who loved her dearly. Dee was strong and strong-willed. And she always had the last word, so when I told her I loved her, she always said “I love you MORE”. She was a true delight and I miss her deeply. My love to all the family she left behind. I am in awe of your loving relationships. Take care.

Sweet Dee - I will miss you! You lived life and you lived it well. Until recently, my parents resided across the hall from Dee in Annapolis. They could always count on Dee - she was everything you would want in a neighbor. And she always knew when I was visiting because she would spot my car in the parking lot. And would always invite me in for a cocktail. I knew Dee as the witty and spunky lady who wouldn't tell you her age, wore curlers, and pranced around her home naked, so you would need to wait until she got dressed before she would answer the door. And then came Pretty...they were inseparable. Pretty knew we were friends and never barked at me. Dee always made me smile! After reading this she would have likely said that she wasn't really that "sweet" - and while that may be true, she was always sweet to me. So glad you were a part of my life!

Deeply sorry to learn the passing of a dear friend and a devoted Catholic . I first met Dee & Tony in Kuwait 1983. We introduced our selves and found we almost lived next door in Southern MD, Bryantown Estates and I lived in Waldorf. Since those days we remained close friends and stayed in touch with Dee after Tony's passing. She was a very kind person and always remembering our grandchildren birthdays. She will be missed as we always talked on the phone often. May God welcome her in heaven with Tony.
Sincere Best Wishes to her family at this difficult time.
Love, Ken & Meao Goldsmith
