Obituary for Louise Dee

Louise Dee, age 77, loving wife, mother, grandmother, and sister passed away peacefully in the early hours of February 14 surrounded by her loved ones in Poughkeepsie, NY.

Louise was born in Avon-by-the-Sea, New Jersey to her parents Vincent and Pearl Maltese. Louise later moved to Bronx, New York where she met her husband Richard and began a family of her own, eventually moving to Poughkeepsie.

A playful soul, Louise found some of her most joyous moments attending Foxwoods bingo gatherings, playing late-night card games, and sneaking away to her son’s video games. She appreciated life’s simple gifts from receiving handmade birthday cards from her grandchildren to attending their softball games.

Louise will be remembered for her generosity, hosting countless family holidays and weekend neighborhood camping trips. She never hesitated to welcome people and animals into her home who needed shelter or a warm Thanksgiving dinner.

Louise is survived by her husband, Richard Dee; her children, Tina Basso and husband Gary, Ricky Dee and wife Ingrid, and Christopher Dee and partner Chrystal; and her grandchildren, Toni-Ann, Joseph, Adam, Isabella, and Paytyn.

Family and friends will gather on Friday, February 16 from 5 to 7 p.m. at Riverview Funeral Home by Halvey, 2 Beekman Street, Beacon. A funeral service will be held during calling hours.
