Dee was a great friend and the most generous, caring person. She had a zest and curiosity to explore and understand new things. I'll never forget our "art outing" to Museum of Modern Art in North Adams MA where Dee researched the trip, recommended the exhibits, and even found Jack's Hot Dog Stand for our lunch. Being with Dee was always an adventure. She was a fantastic artist who would patiently explore the smallest of details to create breathtaking paintings. I will miss her dearly and carry her spirit with me. Jean Furlong

Dee was everything to me. She was my dearest friend and the most giving, loving, wonderful soul I have ever met. Although she was my “student” in watercolor class, I learned more from her by far! She was an incredible artist and definitely did not need my help. She taught me about EVERYTHING else in life! She had such a zest for learning about anything and everything! She loved talking to others and asking questions whenever she had the opportunity. Most of all, she LOVED dogs and all animals. We would always joke that she could never walk by a dog without stopping to say hello. We also shared our love for food and trying new restaurants and recipes whenever we had the opportunity. Above all, she had the biggest heart and always made us laugh. All my love and condolences to her family. She will be missed dearly and I cannot wait for the day when we will meet again. Sincerely, Shannon Faust “Shan Shan”

Dee was a complex and private person. Her generosity and friendships knew no bounds. She had so many close friends from HPC, Better Brands, art classes, Morningside Village, Raffa's, and Girls Night Out. She never forgot a name of an acquaintance. She made every friend feel like the most important person on earth. I am proud to have been one of them. I miss her. Dee, hug Gamma and Nugget for me. Love ya.....
