Dede was a beautiful sister and sister-in-law and the most amazing aunt. She meant the world to us. It broke our hearts to lose her. She did not go alone because a part of us went with her. She had an unrelenting strength. Her candid views on life taught us how important it was to live everyday like it was her last. Dede left us beautiful memories and we will forever cherish our time together. She never judged. She was always there for her family and her friends. Dede loved fiercely. Dede was a loving wife, big hearted sister, caring aunt and beautiful friend. She is one of the most selfless and bravest women we will ever know. Dede, in life we loved you dearly and in death we do the same. And although we cannot see you, you will forever be in our hearts. We hold your memories very close. We will always miss you and continue to love you, “ALWAYS AND FOREVER”. Greg, Enza, Alexia, Logan and Jordan Gilser

My sweet “Dede Buds” was like a little sister. I remember visiting my cousin Dede the first day her parents brought her home from the hospital 51 years ago. I would always hold and cuddle Dede. Then as Dede got older, she followed me everywhere, confided with me and looked up to me. Over the years, we drifted, but my love and respect for Dede never went away. My dear Dede, you will always live on in my heart. My sincerest condolences to Kelly and the Gilser family. Love, Renay

My Beloved Dede. You carried a strength and grace unrivalled. Your authentic, genuine nature, my yearning. Your Beauty, matched only inside. You loved others so fiercely you often made my heart cry. You chose me and loved me so completely, so fiercely, it seemed only fair to give you all of me. You brought out the best in those you called yours and in me, I thank you for that. I'm grateful for you, our story, our love. Rest now sweetness, you did all you could and so much more, I couldn't have asked for anything else. You did great bb. Rest now my precious your love echoes in eternity. Always and Forever Your loving Preppy.
