Dee,
I will miss you. You were the decorations chairman at my first TOPS Recognition. I still have the flower basket that you gave me after the recognition. It has been 29 yrs. I enjoyed our conversations and of course seeing you this past summer when I came to visit your chapter. You will always remain special in my heart. Love and Prayers to your beautiful family. We had a lot in common with the number of children we proudly raised.
Love, Tana O'Donnell TOPS Coordinator

My sincere sympathy to the Ostheimer Family. Dee was a nice person, hard worker, terrific mother; she could do it all ! We both worked for Berlin-Milan Schools for many years and everyone there had great respect for Dee and the job she did. She was someone you could always count on and she had just the right kind of personality to work with children. Kind, but with a measure of discipline. Heaven has a special angel in Dee. Barb Ruggles
