Dee was born on May 5, 1943 in Hays, Kansas to Clarence and Regina (Benham) Gohn. 

Dee is survived by her husband:  Paul Nielsen; Kids: Sean (Bridgette) West, John “Jack” (Kate) West, Rex Hillis, Rusty Hillis, Rhonda Hillis, Sharon (Brady) Jorgensen, Kathy Schofield (Carol Spencer); Grandkids:  Shannon (Scott) Weber, Brandi (Chris) Myers, Jennifer Schofield; Great-Grandkids: Ryan & Connor West, Wyatt & Hudson Weber, Olivia & Carter Myers.

She was preceded in death by Regina Ruth Sneed, Clarence Gohn, Jo Gohn, Chuck Gohn, Roy Hillis, and Robert West.

Fondly remembered by all the lives her joy and wit touched. An enthusiastic reader, Dee loved to hit the road with Paul in their camper enjoying the freedom of the outdoors and the company of all the friends they stopped to visit. Ever the hostess, our drinks never went empty and we never had to worry about starving as Dee was always prepared to “feed Cox’s army.”

A special thank you to the staff at Howard County Community Hospital and Hospice who supported Dee and her loved ones through her journey home.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations in memory of Dee may be made to Howard County Community Hospital, 1113 Sherman St, St Paul, NE 68873.
