I've always liked Deanna. She brought us food after my surgery and did that for many others. She had a happy heart for Service to others. Our condolences to her children, loved ones and friends.

I am honored to have known Deanna and work with her in Intensive Care in Roswell NM. She was a wonderful nurse and loved her patients. May she rest in peace and may her friends and family have peace and good memories of her life.

I was so sad to learn of Deanna's passing. I worked with her in the 1980's in the ICU at Eastern New Mexico Medical Center - Roswell. We became friends but lost contact when she moved. I remember her fondly and recall her talking about her children and how much she loved them. She was a kind and compassionate, honest and brave person.
