Dee was predeceased by her parents; William Roscoe Nash and Edna Chiles Harrison Nash; step-mother, Vienna Margaret Nash; three brothers, Ron Nash, Brent Nash and Barry Nash; and father-in-law, Raburn Crawford.
Dee was born on February 1, 1957 in Ashland, Kentucky. She was a graduate of Towers High School. She was a loyal and devoted employee of Divots Sportswear, golf apparel wholesaler, where she rose to the position of Vice President of Operations with over 30 years of dedicated service. Dee loved attending church, was an avid Georgia Bulldogs fan and loved watching her Hallmark movies. Dee’s greatest joy in life was her children and grandchildren. She attended all the sporting events and dance recitals of her nine grandchildren and every moment was a delight, labor of love and meaningful for Dee to be there for her family. It’s hard to exactly explain Dee’s dedication to her family and career. Once she put her mind to something, it was going to be done to the best of her ability. This wonderful, kind and beloved lady will be deeply missed by her adoring family and the many friends that she made over the years. Rest well our sweet mother, grandmother, sister, family member and loyal friend.
