I worked with De in our homeowners group at Reynolds Landing. She brought a lot of experience and computer skills to our group, which we badly needed. She was always available to help in any way she could with our work. She was a wonderful person who lived a life that was a great example for others. She gave our group a lot of support and was very loyal to her friends. We will miss her very much.
