Dee worked in woman's clothing specialty shops in Worcester, MA, and Vancouver, B.C., managing the women's sportswear department in Fields Department Stores before marrying Jim Margaris on June 1, 1958, in Great Falls, MT. She worked in the former La Mode, Pattersons, and Expressions Women's specialty shops in Havre before retiring with her husband in 1991. She was known for her smart taste in clothing and delicious Greek cooking.
