Bobbie Diffee-Gunn is not only my fabulous mom—she’s also my biggest supporter! Mom and her twin sister were born in 1934 in Little Rock, Arkansas, and her parents later moved the family to Bethany, Oklahoma. There my grandfather, John Diffee, opened the Diffee Motor Company—still a well-known auto dealership in El Reno today.
Mom always says she married the love of her life, Gordon Gunn. They married in 1955 and moved to Ada, Oklahoma, where my three brothers and I were born and raised.My Dad (my Mom’s Husband of 62 Years) was diagnosed with dementia and Alzheimer’s in 2007. This Show is dedicated to my Dad and family caregivers everywhere, we will inform you and help you as you navigate the road as a family caregiver.
