Barbara A Mckee Dell Web Sun City - Barbara McKee 10 year resident of Dell Web Sun City, Palm Desert passed quietly July 26, 2019. At the age of 90, surrounded by her family, her long journey with Alzhemiers peacefully came to a close. Born June 20,1929 in Los Angeles Ca. to Nellie Helen Crosby and George Leslie Birchall, she grew up in the LA area and was a 1948 graduate of Venice High School. A native Californian and Malibu resident for 55 years during which Barbara and husband Bill McKee raised their family of five children and owned and operated several businesses before Bills passing in 1984. In 2003 (at 74) she moved to Palm Desert, to begin a new chapter in the sun. Continuing her Sunshine Barbie style, hospitality was the gift she shared freely with her new Sun City friends and neighbors. In her senior years she traveled to Europe, Asia, Panama, took an Alaskan cruise and in 2005 partnered with Gerald Ford Elementary, her great granddaughters school, to organize a care drive for victims of Hurricane Katrina. Collecting thousands of donated items, making hundreds of shoebox care packages to quickly meet the need. The community outpouring was spectacular.
