I am so so sorry to hear this. My father worked with Dean in the early 1980’s and she became a close family friend, visiting us over the years, after we moved from Missouri. While it has been many years since we last saw her, we have the fondest memories of her and her visits when we were kids and would speak of her often through the years. A constant on each of her visits was that she would make home made ice cream and that she would bring photo albums of her family to show us. It was evident how much she loved her family- continued thoughts and prayers to you all.
