She was a long-time member of Bethel Lutheran Church, loved the Lord and served him well.


She is survived by the three children: Michael Hillmer, Pflugerville, Texas, Deborah (Michael) Stufflebeam, Indianapolis, Indiana, and Lisa (Felix) Coral, from Lander, Wyoming, four grandchildren and several great grandchildren.


She was preceded in death by her parents, sister, and husband.


Dee had an eye and heart for people who were struggling.  If anyone wishes to donate in honor of Dee, please do so by giving, in her name, to someone you know who is in need.
