A little more about Dee..
Dee packed so much into her forty years and you were one of the lucky ones if you got to know her. Dee was born on the 3rd July 1980. She went to school in Ballindaggin and in the FCJ Bunclody. She loved both. Her years in secondary school weren’t without incident as she loved a bit of mischief and was prone to a bit of chatting. She made many friends and many memories. After finishing school Dee tried her hand at many careers and it was IT that she finally found her calling. She excelled in her career and since her passing we have learned just how good she was at her job.
When Dee was not working she was coaching underage soccer or camogie. She loved coaching the girls and dedicated a huge amount of her time to different teams over the years. This was only after she finished her own soccer playing career which was plagued with runny noses and sore hips especially when it came to doing laps. She played in the goal for years with Ballindaggin and Bunclody and had a very unique and relaxed manner to goalkeeping.
Dee also loved travelling and over the years managed to cram in so many countries and adventures. Her favourite trip was over to her uncle and aunt in the states. But, the trip that was the basis of many conversations was her year long trip to Australia.
However, the biggest passion of Dee’s life outside of her family, friends and crazy hats was Liverpool F.C. Dee was a dedicated fan from early on and even up to her last weekend with us was keeping up to date on the score of the Liverpool match that weekend.
Dee got sick very quickly and did not get a chance to fight her cancer. Her last few days were spent in the Cherry Oncology Ward of the University Hospital Waterford where she was made to feel as comfortable as possible. She did not benefit from the many great services that are available to other cancer patients and their families from the Hope Centre and Wexford Hospice Homecare.
We still struggle to come to terms with how quickly Dee was taken from us and we miss her so much. Her passing has brought to our attention just how many people and their families are going through the same thing. We want to remember Dee and we want to help others. So please share your memories of Dee with us as we love hearing your stories and continue to share and support this fundraiser.
