I first met Dee when she took me under her wing and showed me how to be a volunteer in the surgical waiting room at OMH. I received many emails and cards from her, sharing her humor with me. If we ever get back to being able to volunteer our time at the hospital, it won’t be the same without Dee. I will miss her so much.
It was such a privilege to know Dee. We first met working for hospice and continued our journey at OMH. She was always practical and insightful when accomplishing what needed to be done. Please know how much we all valued her and how much she will be missed!
