Edith Diane Waller

February 2, 1957November 27, 2018

Edith Diane "Dee Dee" Waller, age 61, passed away November 27, 2018.

Dee Dee was born February 2, 1957 in Chicago to the late Richard and Lillie (nee Jones) Waller. Also preceding her in death are her brothers, Ben Riley, Charles "Chuck", and Ralph; sister, Betty Jean.

Left to cherish her memory are her son, Joshua (Toya) Waller; granddaughters, Joshlyn, Serenity, and Jazzmine; sister, Sheila; sister-in-law/"mother", Claire; host of nieces and nephews and family; and many close friends.

Dee Dee was a dedicated, hard working mother, grandmother and professional caregiver. Dee Dee loved her music, cooking, a real foodie, and the lottery (not only playing, but especially winning). She never missed Jeopardy, TCM, and when she played cards, you heard her smacking them on the table that told you that you just lost.

She attended and graduated Fenger High School, John Amico, and Olive Harvey Junior College.

Dee Dee will be remembered through the beauty and love of her granddaughters.

Visitation will be Saturday, December 15, 2018 from 1:00 pm-6:00 pm at Kenny Brothers Funeral Home 3600 West 95th Street; Evergreen Park, IL 60805.
