CandleDee was a great lady. She always had a nice thing to say and a light heart. She spoke of her family often with love in her voice and a sparkle in her eyes. I will miss her greatly.

I miss this Lady so much. She always called me Robin dobbin. She was like a Grandmother to the teens and like a Mother to me. Having a hard time accepylting that she is no longer with us. She was a classy Lady. When she wanted to step outside and smoke, she would say she was going to count carts. Sometimes I would ask her how many carts there were Even though I knew she never counted them! She was a real blessing to all of us. Prayers for her family! So Sorry for your loss.

Hello dear family of Deanna,
Please accept my sincere sympathy on the passing of your Mom.
I am a customer of the Grocery Outlet here in Hanover, PA, & saw your Mom on a regular basis. She was always cordial, smiling, & willing to help. She knew where everything was in the store, & on one occasion even put product aside for me for my upcoming trip to Florida. Yes, I really carried items from the store that I knew I couldn't get in Florida (Turkey Hill Iced Tea!)
I'm certain the Grocery Outlet will not be the same without Deanna, however her strong leadership will prevail.
Best regards,
Barbara Kearns Hanover, PA

To Dee's family,

Dee was a very special person. I met Dee at Grocery Outlet when my son Nathan started working there the year they first opened up. We talked everytime I would stop in to shop. We talked to her on Sunday 19th and she told us how excited she was to be going to Indiana. She will be missed dearly. Please accept our sympathies. You are all in our thoughts and prayers.đź’–

I used to work with Dee in Grocery Oulet. She was such a spitball of fire yet absolutely friendly. Dee would always tell you like it is and not hold back...I think we all loved that about her. My deepest condolences to her kids and grandchildren...she spoke of you all so fondly

Susan Rebert on Aug 26, 2018
