Deanna was a free spirit with an infectious smile and loving heart. She truly never met a stranger and found great joy in visiting with anyone that had the time. She was a wonderful daughter, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. She always gave whatever she had wherever it was needed. Her favorite things were spending time with her mom and being with her kids and grandkids, celebrating their accomplishments. She found peace and joy taking care of her wildflowers and enjoying nature.

Survivors include: her mother, Gayona; brothers, Randy (Debbie) and Benny (Patty); children, Sarah Poole (Andrece) and Aaron Brown (Miranda); grandchildren, Zach and Matthew Upshaw, Michael Flynn, Avery, Lainey, Graham, Genevieve and Ava Brown; and great-grandchildren, Artemis and Luca Upshaw. She was preceded in death by: her father, John; and grandchildren, Rayanna Harsh and Aaron Brown, Jr.

Memorial service will be at 3:30 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 25, at Ryan Mortuary, Salina, with a celebration of life to follow.

Memorials may be made to the family in Deanna’s honor for donation to a charity chosen at a later date.
