河北快3Dee was born Nov 30, 1927 in Winnebago, MN where she graduated from High School. She met her husband of 70 years Roy while attending U of M School of Agriculture; they were married July 3, 1948. During their early years of marriage they lived in various towns while Roy traveled with the railroad. After Roy started working for State Farm they enjoyed many lasting friendships while living in St. Peter, Dodgeville, Wi, and Burnsville. During this time Dee and Roy raised their five children. Dee took care of the household and assisted in Roy’s office during their many working years. They later enjoyed 25 years of wintering in Texas and over 50 summers on Birch Lake in Hackensack, MN. For the past seven years she and her husband lived in The Arbors in Burnsville where they developed great relationships with the residents as well as staff. A special thank you to The Pillars Hospice House in Oakdale where Dee received loving care during the past two months. Dee was a master of Jigsaw puzzles, and an avid Twins Fan, but what was most treasured was her time with family and friends.
