Dee was employed at Seaway Marketplace for almost 20 years. She loved to dance and listen to music; first one on the dance floor, last one to leave. Dee was an excellent cook and known for her tamales. She was a passionate cake decorator. Dee enjoyed playing bingo, gardening and taking day trips with her family. She loved nothing more than spending time with her family and grandchildren. Dee was very giving, putting everyone before herself and helping anyone in need.
