My Aunt Dean was a wonderful woman, intelligent, creative, always loving, fun and sometimes a little shy. I always enjoyed her company. I loved her and will miss her.

Love, Kathy

Going to miss you Aunt Dean. Always remember how you would say "us babies of the family got to stick together "😉 And the time we visited Uncle Fred's house (I was 9 or 10) and you were visiting too, I thought you were so cool when you explained your stenographer job to me. I wanted to be one just like you. That is until high school and I found out that I was terrible at dictation. Rest in Heavenly Peace Aunt Dean, Love you. 💜
