Rosemary Deaton Obituary

She is survived by her daughter Jill Suzanne Tanner (Daniel); granddaughters Rebekah Suzanne Hawkins (Phil) and Keturah Michelle Dusch (Justin); and three great-granddaughters, Nora and Hazel Hawkins and Carys Dusch. She also leaves behind her second family at Shawnee Rose Care Center.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to McKinley Avenue Baptist Church Youth and/or Children’s Department.
