1937 - 2018
Deanna Jean Free joined her sweetheart on August 5, 2018. She was the oldest of three children born to Vard Rowen Erickson and M. Ruth Lemmon on Sept. 20, 1937 in Murray Utah. She married her childhood sweetheart and best friend David Roy Free on July 10, 1954.
Together they had three children David G. (Joni) Free, Deanna Lynn (Michael) Williams, and Denise Kay (Vaughn) Rose, ten grandsons, four step-granddaughters, who she loved dearly and they loved her. She was blessed with 32 great-grandchildren.
Jeanie had many accomplishments; her greatest was her family and serving others. She dedicated her life supporting her husband and children in every endeavor. She served in several callings in her church but the most rewarding was working with the special needs primary for over 25 years.
