Ms. Dorothy Denise "Dee" Temples, 53, went home to be with her Lord and Savior on Nov. 17, 2013 at her home in Chipley following a short battle with cancer. Dee was a lifelong resident of Chipley and worked as a Food Safety Consultant and Crisis Management Advisor where she received several certificates and awards and had a huge impact on everyone she met. She was not only good at her job, but enjoyed it as well. She never missed an opportunity to tell people about the love of her Lord and how much He had done for her especially during her illness. Among other hobbies, Dee loved to "drown a worm" every chance she got and more importantly, absolutely loved her grandchildren with all of her heart. Dee has left a wonderful legacy of love for her family to follow and there will be a big hole left in the hearts of everyone that loved her.
Dee is preceded in death by her loving father, Charles Q. Temples; grandparents, William and Ruby Stevenson and Quincy and Gertrude Temples.
She is survived by her mother, Mary Temples of Chipley; her two "boys", Jason Curry (Brandi) of Chipley and Shannon Curry (LeAnn) of Bonifay; a sister, Laura Rehberg (Perry) of Cottondale; brothers, Charles (Charlene) of Tallahassee and David (Patricia) of Dothan, Ala.; Uncles, James David Ellis (Joyce) of Lake City and W. Calvin Stevenson (Joyce) of Vernon; grandchildren, Madison, Wesley, Brason, Maddie, Mika, Ava and Gavin; and six nephews and two nieces.
A celebration of Dee's life was held on Wednesday, Nov. 20, 2013 at 10 a.m., at the First Baptist Church of Chipley with Pastor David Temples officiating. The family received friends one hour prior to the beginning of the service.
