“Dee”\nOur loving Wife, Mother, Grandmother and friend passed away peacefully at home on March 11, 2009. Dee was born October 1, 1932 to Josef and Ruth Gunberg in Minneapolis, MN. Her family moved to La Mesa, CA in 1938, where she graduated from Grossmont High School in 1950. Mom met Bill, the love of her life and married in 1959 in El Cajon, CA.\nDee was an accomplished artist beginning at a young age painting, both with oils and acrylics. She later found her true calling working with clay, starting with live sculpture and eventually developing an affinity for “humor-in-clay”. She displayed and sold her “Clay Creations by Dee” in many street fairs, craft show events, as well as in many retail craft boutiques in California and in Utah and anywhere else people desired her whimsical style of art.\nMom loved the outdoors, especially camping in the desert with her husband and young children in the deserts of California and then later in Utah’s beautiful red rock country. She also enjoyed many adventures traveling to nearly all the National Parks in the Western United States.\nDee is survived by her loving and devoted husband of 49 years, Bill and her four children, Wendy (Lee) Stone, Aaron (Raquel) Buckel, Eric (Bonnie) Buckel and Sharon (Mike) Midgley; as well as her great joys, her four long-awaited grandchildren and an extended family including 7 step-grandchildren, 7 step-great grandchildren and her two pampered Schnauzers.\nMom you will be forever remembered for your always sunny outlook and resourceful nature. You are an example to us all and we will miss you dearly.\nDee wished to be cremated and a private memorial gathering will be held at the home of her daughter.
