She was a native of Maury County, daugher of the late William Robert Dee and Minnie Beckenbach Potts, a retired nurse, and a member of the Eastern Star and the Brentwood Baptist Church.

Adored by her family, she was a 'Child of God, Christian, Mother, Sister, Wife, Daughter & Friend. Nurse, Artist, Collector, Antiquer, Furniture Refinisher, Gardener, Cook & Reader. Creative, Strong-willed, Determined, Disciplined, Shy, Kind, Outspoken & Candid. All of these and so much more.'
