CARLSBAD — Dee passed on September 6 of 2012. Born in Chicago, Illinois on January 12, 1929, she was the first of four children of Louise and Louis Anderson. Dee graduated from Taft High School in Chicago and went on to earn her BA degree at DePauw University in Greencastle, Indiana. After graduation, she married and the newlyweds moved to Southern California. Their first child was born in Burbank. After living in the LA area for most of the 50s, the family moved back to the Chicago area, where two more children were added to the family. After being a stay-at-home mom for 20 years, Dee went back to school and earned certification as a Library Technician. She spent the next 20 years working in the library at Harper Community College in Palatine, Illinois. Dee retired and moved to Carlsbad in 1993, where she was a member of Pilgrim UCC, the Carlsbad Garden Club, and the Carlsbad Historical Society, and she worked part-time at Cole Library in the Local History Room for several years. She was an enthusiastic volunteer, most recently with the Friends of the Library and the Interfaith Community Services. Dee was preceded in death by two ex-husbands, Richard Candler and LaRoy Morning; and her brother, Lou Anderson (Judy). She leaves behind three children, Kay Candler (Clark Erickson) of Philadelphia, Tom Candler of Palatine, Ill., and Julie Lauer (Erich) of Rancho Santa Fe, Calif.; three grandchildren, Steven Candler, Anna Lauer, and Max Lauer; sister, Jan Mills; brother, John Anderson (Mary); and many nieces and nephews.
