Charles graduated from Barry High School in 1951 and knew Dee as a sweet, kind, and friendly lady. We had enjoyed a few meals with her and other old classmates and friends at the local Wendy's. We are so sorry to hear of Dee's passing. Fall of 2019 we visited and enjoyed Dee guiding us around the museum in Barry with Charles' Brother, Bob Ervin and wife from Detroit, Michigan area. Dee is already being missed by her many friends as well as her family. We are so sorry for your loss.
