Dee and James Lamar McGlaughn were married December 27, 1988 at Dallas, Texas. She had been a secretary at Texas Instruments for twenty-five years. After retiring they lived in Kingston, Oklahoma.
Dee enjoyed working with arts and crafts, drawing and painting; also going on cruises and traveling. She took joy in caring for her beautiful rose bushes as well as her dogs and cats. She took pleasure lending her beautiful voice to her church choir. The times Dee enjoyed most were those spent with her family and grandchildren, she deeply loved them all. She had a very special little girl whom she called her baby "Lily Lynn".
Following the death of her husband, James, February 15, 2012, Dee eventually moved to Carrollton, Texas to be nearer to her family. In addition to her husband and parents, Dee was preceded in death by brothers, Cecil Ray and Alvis Russell Austin and sisters, Ellie Arlene Couch and Fern Joan Lawyer.
After a long and useful life, Dee passed away peacefully in a Plano, Texas hospital July 12, 2021. An inspiration to all that knew her, Dee will be missed, but not forgotten.
