Dean enjoyed swimming, boating and being outdoors. She was an avid snowmobiler and ate many hot dogs roasted over a fire in the Adirondack woods. She was also an avid crafter. She did knitting, sewing, embroidery and plastic canvas needlepoint. Her children, as kids, noticed the more dramatic the music was on the TV the faster she knit. She also enjoyed her aquariums and feeding the wild birds with the male cardinal her favorite bird.
