Watertown -- Dolores "Dee" "Sis" A. White age 72 of Watertown, WI passed away on February 6th in the comfort of Rainbow Hospice Care. "Dee" was born on January 6, 1948 to Robert E. White and Dolores J. White in Chicago, IL. While living in Chicago, she dedicated herself to working at Northwestern Memorial Hospital for 37 years. Dee also spent many years raising her siblings. In 2003, Dee made the move to Watertown, WI to work at Watertown Regional Medical Center for over 10 years. In her free time, Dee spent most of her time with her family. For many people, she was a shoulder to lean on. Dee always offered sage advice that was usually followed by a sassy comment. She was a big fan of enjoying music during Watertown Riverfest, supporting the Chicago Cubs and watching the Green Bay Packers, watching boxing, dining out with friends and family and enjoying big cups of coffee all day long.

The family would like to extend a thank you to the Watertown Regional Medical Center care team, especially to her friend Helayne. The family of Dee would also like to acknowledge and thank the involved Rainbow Hospice Care team for their tremendous amount of care and consideration during Dee's stay. Thank you for allowing Dee's last days to be spent with the people she guided and protected for her entire life.
