Dee had owned and operated a clothing and shoe store, in Joplin, and she and Don ran Gage Real Estate Agency. She was very active for years in the VFW Auxiliary, was a water color artist, enjoyed her flower and vegetable gardens, loved to cook, and play the piano. When she was young she moved around a lot because her father was in the U.S. Air Force. Dee was also very athletic and loved to figure skate when she was younger.
Survivors include a daughter, Lisa Davis, Lamar, and a daughter in Texas; two grandchildren, Cody Davis and Sophia Davis; a half sister, in Cumberland; a cousin, in Utah, Eugene Crossland, and a cousin in Florida. Preceding Dee in death were her parents and her husband, Don, in 2011.
