Deanna Howe was born October 15, 1946 in Hereford, Texas.  She was the daughter of Guy and Vera (Carlson) Howe.  Deanna grew up in several towns as her family moved around.  In 1963 she was united in marriage to Bill Dennis, in Sheridan Wyoming.  Following their marriage, Bill and Deanna lived in several towns due to Bill’s work in construction which required them to move around.  Eventually, they settled in Hulett where Bill and Deanna both worked at the Neiman Sawmill.  They were later divorced.  Deanna continued living in Hulett where for many years she worked as a caregiver to many people.  Caring for people was one of her priorities in life.  She loved life and cared much about people.  She also loved nature, animals, hunting with her family, and she was talented at sewing and crocheting.  She was a strong Christian woman and over the past five years of fighting cancer, her faith really shined. 

Deanna is survived by her son, Paul (Shelly) Dennis of Dunkertown, Iowa; daughter, Becky (Tommy) Comer of Winslow, AR, and Peggy Horton of Fayetteville AR; 7 grandchildren, and 3 great grandchildren.  She is also survived by her sisters, Sue Sanders of Hulett WY, and Loretta Barker of Glen Rock WY.

She was preceded in death by her parents; an infant daughter, Linda; and her great grandson, Colson.
