After that, they were inseparable for 66 years of marriage. Dee was a dedicated AVON representative for 50 years and cared for many children over 13 years as an after-school teacher’s assistant at Sts. Peter & Paul. She loved going to the beauty salon and never missed an opportunity to catch up with friends. She was an amazing mother, grandmother, sister, and friend. She touched the lives of so many people. She will truly be missed and will never, ever, be forgotten.
