Dorothy “Dee Dee” McKinney, 56, of Somerville, passed away Sunday, June 21, 2009, at St. Joseph Regional Health Center in Bryan. Arrangements are under the care of Callaway-Jones Funeral Home in Bryan. No services are planned at this time, as there will be a memorial gathering of friends and family at a later date.
Dorothy was born November 2, 1952, in Corpus Christi to William and Dorothy Evans. Dee Dee was an unusual woman, as she had an I.Q. in the 180’s and had an excellent memory. She learned to become a fabulous florist after her sister passed away. She also had a great sense of humor, and she always introduced her husband Daniel as her insignificant other. Dee Dee was well known for always doing everything she could to help someone else.
Survivors include her husband, Daniel Paul, of Somerville; mother, Dorothy Evans, of Rosenberg; brothers, Leslie Evans, of Bay City, Larry Evans, of Pasadena; 4 nieces and a nephew.
The family has asked for memorial donations to be made to any charity benefiting cancer patients.
