Grandma Dee always had a smile on her face and loved to bring one to others' faces as well. She was a special lady in not only my life, but many other lives. She will be missed but her memory will live on in the ones who love her. I am so blessed to call her my grandma because she brought something into my life that I just can't explain. I will always love her and will miss her contagious laugh, caring smile, and sense of humor!!

Grandma Dee, as she was called by the children at the After School Program...What a wonderful light flowed out of her! They could always count on her for a hug and a listening ear. As a friend and Co-worker she was a gracious lady. She always had a friendly smile and usually a compliment to follow, no matter what she was always a ray of sunshine, as she will continue to be to us in our memories. My Condolences to the Ignowski and Larchick Family.
