Dee enjoyed playing a variety of card games including pinochle, euchre and crazy 8s with her grandson; dice games including Yahtzee and 6-5-4; trips to the casino – especially the yearly jaunts with her Sissy; playing BINGO with at least 10 cards!; watching sports on TV – her favs were golf and basketball; wordsearch puzzles and computer games; and decorating her apartment for every season/holiday. Above all she loved her family fiercely. She delighted in her grandchildren and her great grandchildren. She gave huge, tight tugs that were genuine.
