Words can’t express our sorrow and pain over losing you and yet we feel complete and utter joy that you are no longer suffering and are pain free. Go and enjoy those you have lost and now have again. We sure miss you, but heaven is sweeter with you there.

She was preceded in death by parents, husband Lewis Dean Deeds Sr., sons Allen and Dean Tattrie, stepmother Dorthy Spencer and brother Bill Morgan.
