August 11, 1946 - September 25, 2015

Dee Jean Gerhardt, 69, passed away with her husband at her side holding her hand. She was born in New York to the late Lester Klein and Edith Worrell Klein.

 

Dee was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, and a great friend to many.

Dee was a proud volunteer at the United States Navy for 9 years as an ombudsman. In her free time, she was an avid bingo player and enjoyed bowling. Dee also enjoyed taking cruises with her family and friends. She was resilient and caring even throughout her own health battles. She always managed to put others before herself without complaint. Dee was loved by all that knew her and will be greatly missed.

What our families say...

In my opinion, there is no better facility in Virginia than Altmeyer Funeral Homes. Not only was Chris Sisler there to hold my hand every step of the way, his family members were holding the door on the day of the funeral to help and encourage me. I will never forget their grace. He led me and my family through the process as a personal friend and neighbor, and as the ultimate professional.
