Dee Dee graduated from Archbishop Ryan High School in Omaha as well as the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. She was a season-ticket holder for Nebraska Volleyball and cheered on the Cornhuskers to several National Championships over the years. She also loved live music, dancing, and spending time with her family and friends, especially at The Ozone.  Dee Dee was the main caregiver for her great uncle, Otto, as well as both of her parents, and her grandmother, Minnie.

The family would like to thank all of her doctors and the staff at Midwest Cancer Center; Felicia, Casey, and their staff at Live Hydration Spa; Bekki Koenig; Andrea Siemek; Pam and Peg; as well as cousin, Denny Circo and brother, Mark.

    I am so sorry for your loss! I will never forget how dear Dee Dee was to me when we moved in with my Grandma Trout when we were little. She was like a big sister to me as we started at OLL in the middle of the school year! God Bless her and Rest In Peace now Dee Dee.

    Rest well my sweet friend. Your kindness, light and laughter will never be forgotten. I will smile and remember you each time I look at my wedding ring and our trip to 14K. I will think of you when I think of Lanskys Pizza (with cream cheese) and of course everytime I see Loapord print. I have known many people that have passed this year. I would like to believe that Jesus called upon all of his best helpers to help him with all of what the World is facing right now. You were always a helper Dee Dee. I hope your family can find comfort in knowing you are with your sweet Mom and Dad and nolonger suffering. May the stars be your diamonds my friend. Shine on. Shine on.
