So sorry to come across this. I didn't realize Deane had passed away. So sorry for your loss, Les. I used to grocery shop with Deane and later for her. She was a spunky lady and talked about you often. I went to visit her at the nursing home behind Target and found out she had moved.

The doors of Heaven have opened to our dear dear Deane. She fought the fight and is now in the arms of a Loving Savior! Our beautiful, talented, and great lady will be so missed but so welcome in her heavenly home! My Mom, who went to be with the Lord in 2013, was a great friend of Deanne also. The three of us had many good and cherished times. My condolences to the family.. Wanda Glavash

I am so sorry for your loss. I enjoyed getting to know your mom while she lived at Historic Jefferson Centre Senior Apartments. I wish I could come to her service, but I got a new job and it isn't possible. You all are in my prayers.
