Dee and Bernard lived several places after their marriage; such as, Douglas, Wyoming, Cody, Nebraska, and settling in Callaway in 1994. She went to work for the Callaway Public School System as a Para-Educator, a job she absolutely loved, because she adored working with the children for nearly 20 years. She also enjoyed bowling, reading, crocheting, camping, and attending her children’s, grandchildren’s and great-grandchildren’s activities. She was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis in 1991, which unfortunately made her slow down a bit. Dee was a member of Callaway Community Church.
