Dolores (Dee) Faulkner Leishman Crockett passed away in her home in South Ogden, UT, the morning of April 27, 2016 at the age of 88. She is the oldest of twelve children born to Frank and Lucille Faulkner.

Dee was part of the second graduating class of Ogden High School, where she was voted "Most Beautiful Legs".

She worked at the store for 38 years and was a member of the American Society of Interior Design.

Dee was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and in 2000 she was sealed in the Albuquerque, New Mexico temple to her husband Edwin Crockett. After several years of marriage, the Crocketts sought to return to their common roots and relocated to South Ogden Utah, where she lived out her remaining years. There, she enjoyed associating with nearby family, including her three sisters. Her children greatly appreciate her husband Ed who nurtured and cared for her in the twilight of her life.

Dee is survived by husband Edwin Crockett; children Scott Leishman, Nancy Christensen; eight grandchildren; 16 great grandchildren; six siblings, Joy, Connie, Brent, Susan, Mike and Deborah.
