Deanne was a lovely lady. We miss having her in our Sunday School Class at Nimmo UMC. I hope the family finds comfort in knowing that she lives on with her fellow Christians in perfect health and peace in heaven.

I send my condolences to my dear friend’s family. Deanne was the first friend I met at Nimmo United Methodist Church when I sat next to her in our pew. We prayed together, sang together, cried together, and laughed together. We attended Ella Nimmo Circle together and enjoyed being in each others’ company. We in the Circle all loved Deanne and she resides with other great ladies now from Nimmo United Methodist Church.

I visited Deanne at the Memory Center and one day was a Sing-a-thon with snappy piano player and energetic conductor. How we sang “She’ll be comin’ around the mountain…” and “My Wild Irish Rose.” She would lean her head into mine and I would prop mine dearly on her head. She always hugged me like she knew who I was. How I loved her and cherish these memories of her, too. She will remain an important person in my Christian journey.

I would dearly love to bid farewell at her final resting place at Arlington National Cemetery next to her husband. I hope that you will allow me to be present. 757-395-7085 and

Sincerely yours, Elaine Patrick
