Deanna ”Dee Dee” Ruth Beck (Nee Schmidt), 70, passed away peacefully to eternal life July 9, 2020 with family members by her side.

Dee Dee was born in Menomonee Falls on Nov. 14, 1949, to Eugene and Irene (nee Schlei) Schmidt. She was the fifth of 12 siblings. On Oct. 2, 1971, she married the love of her life, David Beck. She was an office manager at the family store, Sentry Foods of Waterford and Pick N Save for most of her life. Later, she made the best food at Rochester Mini Mart. Her infectious smile was known in the local community. Dee Dee’s house was also known to be the best place to trick-or-treat year after year.
