Dolores Maxine Waddell was born Aug. 13, 1935, in Castlewood to the union of Leland and Dorothy (Vansickle) Waddell. This is the area where she was raised and attended school, graduating from Castlewood High School with the class of 1953.
Dee later moved to Aberdeen, where, throughout her working career, she was employed at the Anderson Agency, the Lumber Company, Modern Business Machines, Club 23 and Dakota Midland Hospital. Her family would like to thank all of her co-workers for the great memories and friendships made through the years at these places.
Dee became a resident of Golden Living Center in Groton in January 2006, where she continued to reside until the time of her death.
Dee was a member of Bethlehem Lutheran Church in Aberdeen. She was an avid bowler and enjoyed playing softball. Dee especially loved being a mother and always made her three children her top priority.
Thankful for Dee's love and guidance are her children: Douglas (Barb) Riley of Aberdeen, Debra (Randall) Cartwright of Colorado Springs, Colo., and Vicki Jo (Rick) Haussler of Rutland, N.D.; nine grandchildren; 11 great-grandchildren; one brother, Rex Waddell; and one sister, Beth Grandy and their families of Phoenix, Ariz.
She was preceded in death by her parents.
