I'm sorry I didn't hear about Dee's passing in time to send flowers. Dee was a good friend to my mother, Mary Nelson. She was a a sincerely good hearted , kind woman. I have fond memories of Dee and her family going back 50+ years. I'll miss her cards at Christmas time, and our long phone chats, though they were few. She always talked to me about her kids and grandkids. I know she cherished them all.
My sincere condolences to all of her family.
See you again someday, Dee!

To Dee's Daughters & Families,
I'm so sorry I missed the Obit in time to attend the wake. Dee attended my husband's memorial service in Sept 2015 and I feel very badly not being there for Dee's. I offer my prayers to all of you. Dee was the best friend of my husband, Don Wells, first wife, Alice Wells. I don't know if you might have remembered Alice Wells, but she's been deceased for a number of years now. Dee was always kind, generous and a good person. I know you'll miss her.

I remember when Dee and Bob lived on Sullivan Rd. I would always watch for the Semi to pull in the driveway and I would stop and say hi to both of them. R.I.P. Granny, from Polar Bear.
