My sympathies to DeeDee's family. She was a kind and caring person. She loved her family more than anything. I was lucky to be in her bunco club for a time. She shopped all year long for gifts for the family. Sunday dinners with her family will be missed.
Dee Dee, as Judy called her was such a sweet lady. She volunteered at the church with Judy to help with funeral dinners and I worked with her. She seemed to be a very good cook and was willing to do anything. Love,sympathy and prayers to all of you. Katie Matusik
Rod I was so sorry to hear of your mother's passing. I did not know her well but I know that with a son like you she must have been pretty awesome. God bless you!
Remembering Dee from 55 years ago when we worked together at Louie's Dari-Castle, I am sorry to read of her death. She was a wonderful person, full of laughter and smiles. She made my life happier and I have thought of her often over the years. I send condolences to her family with a prayer that her memory is always a blessing to you.

Rod, Teresa and family, I am so sad to hear about your mom. We worked together for many years and she was truly one of a kind. She was a hoot, always made us laugh and was just a good lady. I am thinking of you and praying for you in this difficult time.
We are so saddened to hear about Dede. She was the best cinnamon roll and pizza maker ever! Dede will be missed by so many and it’s hard to imagine her gone. I will miss our lunches together. She was truly one of the best.
