In her spare time, she enjoyed the outdoors, going on walks, visiting with people, going out to dinner and shopping trips with her long-time friend, Ken, and adored her dog, Maddie. Deann loved her family and especially being with her grandbabies. She has left us far too soon, but we will always cherish the special times we had together.
