August 30, 1937 – October 8, 2013
at the age of 76 years
Memorial services will be held at 2:00 P.M. on Saturday October 19, at Columbus Court, 3003 Gateby Place, Vernon BC. A graveside service will be held in private.
It is with sadness that the family of Deanna Christensen announces her passing on October 8th, 2013 in Vernon, BC, after 76 amazing, jammed packed years full of life. Deanna was born in Allan, Saskatchewan; she spent her early years in Burns Lake, BC, where she had 5 children before moving to White Rock, BC where she had her sixth child.
There was not much Deanna did not do and there was nothing she would not try.
Deanna moved to the Okanagan later in life where she loved to dance and smile, love and laugh. Her bright spirit and enterprising ways will always be remembered by her children; Lynn (Gary), Rod (Wendy), Blaine (Trish), Shannon and Colleen (Bruce); sixteen grandchildren and 6 great-grandchildren.
Deanna is now with many family and friends including her parents George and Marguerite Klotz , her sister Gerry, her daughter Laurie, grandson Blake, great
granddaughter Greta and an embrace of friends and loved ones.
Deanna had become an advocate for the Heart and Stroke Foundation in Vernon, BC and would appreciate in lieu of flowers, memorials be sent to them in her memory.
The family requests those that can attend her service to wear something red , it was her favorite color and she was an amazing woman built of many many colors.
I would like to pass on my condolences to Deanna’s family. Deanna was indeed a one of a kind person. I am the former Coordinator for the Stroke Recovery Branch in Vernon, B.C. When Deanna joined our branch, I was very happy to see such a sparkling and upbeat lady join the group. She had a very good aura about her and was always filled with laughter and positive energy. I do know that wherever she is now, she will be dancing on the tables with a smile on her face! It was a pleasure to have known her. Brenda Paul
As the manager of the Brentwood, I loved having Deanna living in here. She always
made me smile. She was a lady that loved to be busy and was always trying new things. She will be missed and thought of with much love. I wish I could have come to
her memorial but I had to work. Hugs to all the family,remember your Mom is always close to you as she has a special place close to your heart.
Deanna was a wonderful woman who had a great love for her family, may all the wonderful memories of her be with all of you at this difficult time. We send our love and condolences.
Colleen & Family, may happy memories give you the strength to go on. Condolences to you and the family. May your Mom rest in paradise.
