The family moved to Washington when she was 3 years old. In the 5th grade her teacher, Mr. Bellamy, made her sit with classmate Fred Ramsey because they spent so much time talking to each other in class.

She opened her own Mediterranean furniture shop in Bellingham for several years. She was later employed as an office manager and accountant for law firms in Seattle and Olympia until her retirement.

Dee enjoyed belly dancing, crocheting, and she volunteered for the local hospital in her spare time. Later in Dee’s life, she was blessed with multiple grandchildren, and they were a source of constant joy.
