Barbara, I was very sorry to hear of your Mother's passing. I remember going to your house when we were back in school and she was always very hospitable and kind. Your family will be in my prayers.

Sure going to miss Aunt Dee had so much fun going to her house as a child,
My resent memory was the fun we had on the cruise with the family.
Got to spend some quality time with her. My sympathies to her children

De was a very fine person and a good friend to everyone. I loved her smile and when I hugged her she always smiled so sweetly that she made me want to hug her again. She loved her animals so much and loved her girls and her grandchildren. She truly was a wonderful person and I am glad to have known her. I will never forget her. Mark and Tracy Brown

I worked with De at Barkefellers. She definately was the most knowledgeable employee they had regarding animals. I tried to learn from her. At that time she was on a cane and I tried to help her with heavy work load. I wont be able to attend any services but I have never forgotten De. Also, I know Dick and Sue and I know how much they loved De. She definately will be missed! RIP De.
