Deanna Lee Lehr

October 8, 1943 ~ August 25, 2018 (age 74)

Deanna Lee Lehr, lively, bright, drop dead gorgeous, creative, talented, phenomenal listener, brave warrior, left to be with God on August 25, 2018.

Deanna was born at home on a farm in Windsor, Colorado. She was the youngest of 5 children. At 17 she married & became a mom to her daughter, Kimberly. Just after turning 18 she got a Hodgkin’s cancer diagnosis. Deanna went with her mother to NYC where she embraced, as a BRAVE WARRIOR, experimental mantle radiation.

At 19 Deanna unexpectedly faced single motherhood as a BRAVE WARRIOR.

Deanna pursued Barnes Business College in Denver while her family supported her & her daughter. Deanna landed her first job at KRMA TV CHANNEL 6. Reaching for the stars with big dreams, she took a chance by moving to Los Angeles & landed a great job with Xerox.

Deanna was stunning & necks broke looking at her! God blessed her with great strength & beauty. She lived her life to the fullest; hard at work and play. She loved packing up her old VW Bug with beach gear, avocado & turkey sandwiches from her favorite café in Manhattan Beach & enjoying the beautiful beach & ocean. She was deeply loved by her friends with whom she’d throw Fondue dinner parties. She had a knack for decorating making the ugliest places look chic.

At 47 years old she was given a granddaughter, Melanie. She was the best grandmother. A move to Arizona in 2006 brought her closer to her daughter, granddaughter, son-in-law Steve & recent grandson-in-law Dariel. Sadly, Mantle Radiation took its toll & Deanna endured an abundance of medical crises over the years facing everything as a BRAVE WARRIOR.

Deanna stole hearts & stole a huge piece of ours in her death. She is deeply & forever missed.
