I had the honor of working with Dee, Bob and Karen for many years. Being the wonderful, kind, generous and understanding people that they are, they quickly became like family. Dee was such a wonderful, smart lady who was always so kind and thoughtful and a joy to work with and know. When we had a busy day, she would keep things light with a lovely sense of humor that put a smile on your face. I really enjoyed hearing about her stories of her younger days when she worked in Chicago. Dee and Bob taught me a strong work ethic that I carry with me today - to work smart, to take the time to do things the right way, to treat people fairly and kindly and to be mindful and to listen with an open mind and an open heart. Sending heaps of love to Dee up above, Bob, Karen and their wonderful family. Love you guys, The Irish Lass

Aunt Dee was always a great role model for me. She lived her life with dignity and grace. I always admired her independence, but she was never selfish.
When I moved into my first house, Aunt was right there on the first day with a brand-new set of Corell dishes, many of which I still use, some 25 years later.
When we were less than 10, her son Bob (my cousin) and I had G.I. Joes - with tons of accessories of all kinds. Aunt sewed up some burlap cloth into small bags and filled them with sand. It was so cool that we were the only kids whose G.I. Joes hand sandbags - because they weren't available commercially.
But that was Aunt to a T, Always thoughtful and giving.
She will be sorely missed, but never, ever forgotten.
