“DeeDee” as most of her family and friends knew her loved her family especially her BOYS. She loved to have a great time, you could always find her at the spades table talking trash and backing it up. She also had a love for music, even when she couldn’t get out of bed she wanted music playing so she could “boogie”. She was someone you could talk to about anything. We thank God for her life, her legacy, and the lessons she taught while here with us.
