DeeAnn.....I don’t know where to begin. We have had so much fun, lots of laughs and shed some tears....from the days our kids were little, our PWP days, the singles dances, shopping trips, our girl talks, monthly lunch with the girls, getting together to watch the tv show, Nashville, and of course the trip we girls made to the flea market in White Cloud, KS but ended up in the middle of nowhere in White Cloud, IA, and how I would say you were my “old” friend because you were a week older than me! And I will always remember how you use to decorate for Christmas...I had never seen so many Christmas trees in one house....and I can still see your “sunflower” kitchen. And how devoted you were to your three sons and would do anything for them. I am going to miss you, my dear friend...but I know you are now pain free and are surrounded by your family and BFF, Dianna. Love you, girl! 😢

Dee Ann was the kindest woman I have ever known. She always found good in everyone. I was truly blessed to have her in my life and I will be forever grateful. I loved holidays at her house, especially xmas when she decorated every room. Halloween parties were the best. Anytime I saw anything PURPLE I definitely thought of her. I will love and miss her always
