She worked as a bartender in Guymon, OK,  and was part of the doctoring crew at Hitch’s feedlot in Hardesty, OK. She worked hard and loved to learn. All of her friends’ kids were hers too, she was Mama DeeDee to many. She had a quick wit and enjoyed music, dancing, playing pool and get-togethers with friends and family. She was well known for her fiery spirit and red hair. She dearly loved animals. Legend has it that her mother wore combat boots. Dee Dee was united in marriage to Steve Lang on November 18, 1983, in Hardesty, OK.  Dee Dee’s greatest joy was her family which includes her husband Steve Lang of Greeley, CO, daughter Lindsey Lang of Greeley, CO, sister Cheryl January of Pryor, OK, brother Joe Barlow of Amarillo, TX, mother-in-law Frances Gehrke of Herington, KS sisters-in-law Susan Sponsler of Montague, CA, and Sheri Alvey of Herington, KS brother-in-law Scott Lang of Abilene, KS, grand-dogger Ginger of Greeley, CO and several nieces and nephews.  Dee Dee passed away on February 3, 2022, at the Medical Center of the Rockies in Loveland, CO.
