It can be hard for families to spend time together when parents and grown children no longer live in the same town or state.
When Desiree was a young girl, her family moved every few years before settling in Lincoln when she was 11 years old. Moving often, it was hard to make friends, Desiree and her three siblings became very close. Family was very important because they supported each other and stuck together. This mentality stuck with Desiree all her life.
Desiree met her husband Bruce while working together at Golden Laundry. They got married on March 4, 1978 and rasied two children, Nathan of Fort Collins, Colorado and Nina of Kansas City, Missouri. Desiree always took care of others. She worked in the laundry department of nursing homes and loved being there to helping the residents.
Desiree was battling cancer and had one Dream, to have the most important people in her life, her family, together one last time. When her daughter heard about her mother’s Dream, she contacted Dreamweaver Foundation for help. For a few warm, sunny days in July, Desiree enjoyed being surrounded by her daughter, son and husband during her last days.
Thank you to Nina for your help arranging the Dream and Candlewood Suites for lodging family members.
