Dillette Pelletier "Dee"

Pelletier, Dillette "Dee" (French), 77, passed away peacefully in her sleep on Wednesday, February 21, 2024, after a brief decline in health. Dee was born on January 9, 1947, in Bay City, Michigan, and attended Handy High School. It was during her high school years that she met the love of her life, Gerald "Jerry" F. Pelletier. They married on March 31, 1968, and enjoyed nearly 50 years of a loving and fulfilling marriage. Together, they raised two children, Brad M. Pelletier and Kristine M. Pelletier.

Dee was a skilled seamstress, dedicating many years to her craft. Following Jerry's retirement from General Motors, they cherished their time spent at their cabin up north in Farwell. Dee was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Jerry Pelletier, in 2018, and her dear brother, Doug French, in 2000.

Dee is survived by her loving children, Kristine (Derek) Pelletier and Brad Pelletier, as well as her grandson Lucas (Ruby) Pelletier and granddaughter Bethany (Jeremy) Coursey. She will be deeply missed by her great-grandchildren, Kaden, Karleigh, and Karson Coursey, her sisters Deidre Sharp, Sandy Butkin, and Dawn French, her brother Durk French, and a host of cherished friends, including Karen Sylvester, Susan LeVasseur, and June Fournier, and Darleen Vander Vliet, along with many others in the tri-city area and beyond.

Dee's wishes for cremation have been honored. The family may hold a small, private celebration of her life in the near future. Cremation arrangements have been entrusted to Gephart Funeral Home, Inc. & Cremation Services in Bay City, MI.

The family wishes to thank the caregivers at Symphony Tri-Cities Assisted Living Facility and Promedica Hospice for the excellent care Dee has received that past several months.
