    Dear wonderful family and loved ones of Deaun, My heart broke when I learned of her passing!! I considered her like a second mom to me. I remember camping trips, crochet lessons, making awesome desserts, fireworks, BBQ'S and much more but most of all, always giving Norm and Deaun a hard time about the color blue ( they were huge BYU fan's) and the color red ( I am a UTAH fan, plus my maiden name has red in it.*Allred) so I would take them little gifts and put from your " little ALLRED DEVIL". Which told them how much I loved them. I'm glad they are together again and up in heaven with my Dad. Take care my friend. I will love and miss you tons. Love always Jacquelyn Allred Irvine

    I’m so sorry for your loss. Although unexpected, I am thankful she passed peacefully and know she is overjoyed to be reunited with Norm and other family and friends who preceded her in death. Deaun never rested! She had recently received her second COVID shot, because she was anxious to be able to resume normal activities at the senior center, visiting family and friends, and (I imagine) planning future travels. She was always thinking about her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. Her face brightened as she shared stories of all of you. She smiled and laughed with her whole soul. I will miss her joy, her desire to learn new things (like how to send a group text, or logging onto a Zoom church meeting) among other curiosities. I will miss my dear friend and wish you comfort and joyous memories until you meet again. My love and prayers to the Henricksen and Baugh families. Candy Bradford

    Dear family of Deaun, I love Deaun, we became really good friends when my husband John and I lived at Victoria Woods. We had many wonderful get togethers the first few years at the club house and family home evenings and of course church events. Deaun was so incredibly sweet to us and those around her. She will be missed yet we know she must be overjoyed to be with family and friends beyond the veil of this life. What a talented woman she was here on earth. I am so glad to have met her and shared special times with her.

    I am soooo sad to hear of Deaun’s passing. She was one of my bestest friends. We were good friends for over 35 years. She was a very sweet lady and would do anything for you. I will miss her terribly. All of my love and prayers are for the family. May God’s abiding love be with you all and comfort you at this difficult time. Good bye dear friend. Till we meet again. I love you!!❤️

    Sandra and families sorry to learn of your Mother (mother in law ) passing. I know she was ready to meet her sweet husband waiting on the other side. I heard so many delightful stories of their romance together. I’m glad she finished those 1st 26 notebooks full of pictures and stories for each of you/ what a treasure. Be happy for life and it’s trials— we all have them. I send my hugs to each of you. She will be mindful of you always. Christie
