Obituary for Deanna Witherspoon

Deanna Faye Witherspoon was born on March 20, 1943 in Watonwan County, Minnesota to the late Emmett Leo and Vera V. (Armstead) Witherspoon. She was baptized at the United Methodist Church in Madelia and lived in Adrian Township until 1964. She then moved to Darfur until 1979. In 1979, she moved to RAI in Windom. For thirty nine years, she worked for the Cottonwood County DAC. She took great pride in preparing material for their rug weaving. In August of this year, she moved to PRL #5 in Windom. Deanna passed away on Saturday morning, November 17, 2018 at the age of 75 years.

She was a longtime member of the United Methodist Church in Madelia. While living in Windom, she attended the First Baptist Church with her friend Mary Bogle for several years. Deanna had many enjoyments in life which included reading braille with her friend, Ruby Wilson; attending the Sister Kenny Art Show with her friend Brett Lehman; she also looked forward to her annual cabin vacation, listening to the Twins game on the radio, and enjoyed dining out with friends. She will be remembered for her unique talent of playing the piano by ear, her amazing memory, and her unique ability to visualize the calendar in her mind.
Deanna is survived by her aunt, Marian Joann Murphy of Hutchinson, KS and many nieces and nephews.

She is preceded in death by her parents; and several aunts and uncles.

Blessed be the memory of Deanna Faye Witherspooon.
