her children and grandchildren.

She leaves behind to cherish her memory two sons, seven granddaughters, one great granddaughter, one brother and numerous other extended family members and a host of special friends.

Anyone who had the privilege of knowing her knew that she always put others before herself and extended a helping hand and an open door. She was loving, funny, wise, selfless, feisty, kind, particular, a great listener and most of all real. She loved being outdoors camping and fishing with family and friends. A celebration of DeDe’s life that has impacted so many is planned for Saturday, December 30th, 2023 at 3:00 PM at Stanfield Baptist Church located 1549 No Pone Road NW, Georgetown, TN 37336 with Pastor Mike Rymer and Reverend Eric Geren officiating.

The family invites you to join them at the Fellowship Hall immediately after the service for a time of gathering, fellowship and of course food. DeDe wouldn’t have it any other way. In lieu of flowers, please provide a donation in DeDe’s name to Stanfield Baptist Church Children’s Ministry.
