Her Steelers came second to none! She was known in Schenley as "Tex" because she was so fast while running track. Dee also participated in tennis, and various social clubs, travel clubs, and activities, and loved to travel with her family and friends. She was no stranger Dee was devoted to numerous churches and accepted Jesus Christ as her Holy Savior joining her family members that proceeded in death, father and mother, Dorothy Crump and Joseph Jones.

She enjoyed traveling with her friends and family, she was the best Grammy in the world to her grandchildren/great-grandchildren. Anytime Dee was needed, she was there!

Dee would always say, "Everything will be alright, honey" and hit you with the most beautiful smile to follow. She had a heart of gold and a glow to her that made you feel so comfortable in her presence. Dee was an amazing woman that will truly be missed
