Dee was born June 28, 1959, in Bismarck, to Virgil and Millie McCormick, of Menoken. Dee graduated from St. Mary’s High School in Bismarck and from Minot State University with a bachelor of science degree.

There’s nothing more Dee loved than her daughters, grandchildren, family and spending time together during the holidays. One of her favorite pastimes was to curl up on the couch with a good cup of coffee, a movie and snuggling with her cat “Meow-Meows.” Dee enjoyed the outdoors, craft fairs and traveling, which included a trip of a lifetime to Ireland. She was currently employed at Essentia Health of Fargo.

Dee touched the lives of many and will be greatly missed. Dee is survived by: her daughters, Billie Jo Kirkpatrick, Bismarck, Tina Kirkpatrick, Minot, Nicole (Chris) Stevens, Las Vegas, Nev.; six grandchildren, Lukas Becker, Bismarck; James and Joey Laducer, Bismarck; and Cade, Lily, and Amelia Stevens, Las Vegas, Nev.; siblings, Bill McCormick, of Australia; Marilou (Allan) Voegele, Bismarck; Jody (Jim) Tuchscherer, Rugby; Larry (Barb) McCormick, Wing; Carol (Kurt) Hagel, West Fargo; and Brian McCormick, Long Beach, Calif.; and many nieces and nephews.
