For several years, I had the pleasure of being Miss Dee’s pharmacist at Island Pharmacy on Tybee Island. Miss Dee was a kind, thoughtful, and compassionate person with a heart as big as her smile. She was a dear lady who loved her family very much. Mr and Mrs Freyermuth were wonderful people who will be missed, remembered, and forever loved by all who had the privilege to know them. With Deepest Sympathies

A candle has been lit!

So sorry to hear of Dee’s passing. I had the honor of working with Curley many years ago in Savannah which brought the honor of meeting Miss Dee. What a fun loving couple and a joy to be around. So glad Dee reached out to me several months ago by phone as it was great to hear from her after so many years. Dee will be truly missed. May God bless and comfort you all.

I am related to Feloris Dee Colson. I do believe her father was a doctor in Charleston, SC, and her brother was Bill Colson. A wonderful man and boyfriend of my mother, Cleo Madera Sparks.

Bruce, Jane and family, We are saddened to know that Dee is no longer with us but happy that she and Curley are together again. We’ve missed her these past years since she left Tybee. She and Curley were such special people. We feel privileged to have known them. Our heartfelt prayer is that soon your pain will be diminished by your wonderful memories. Our love to you!
