She was preceded in death by her father, Neil Riser, Sr.; stepfather, Herschel Gentry; and brother-in-law, Gary Martin.

Deanna was loved by so many. She had an outgoing personality and never met a stranger. She loved her sons with all her heart and was so very proud of the men they had become. She adored her grandchildren and loved spending time with them.
