Dee Dee is survived by her brothers and sisters-in-law; Frank (Marcy); Tim (Pam); Dan (Pam); Mike (Peg); Mark, and Jeff (Tiff); nieces, Michaela (Eli); Julia, Angie (Aaron); Elizabeth; Anna (Molly); Eloise, and Lola; nephews, Vince (Andrea); Tony (Lindsey); Marcus (Jessie); Joe, and Nick; 16 great-nieces and great-nephews; and many beloved friends.
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.
