Dean was a loving and skilled caregiver to our beloved Virginia Fielder Hobbs. They became good friends and Dean felt like a part of our family. She will be missed by all who love her.

Ms. Dean was always so delightful I remember growing up. She always smiled everytime we saw her. You could tell she loved children. She was a very sweet kind hearted woman. Heaven gained an angel for sure.
