So sorry to hear of Deannie's passing. I am the former manager of Clearview Terrace. Deannie's was a special friend and tenant. She had a smile for everyone. She never gave up and even attended our Bowling Christmas event in December. She will be missed ♥️

Dear Staub family, I am so sorry to learn of Deanie's passing. Whether you called her mom or grandma, she was the matriarch of your family and I know she will be very missed. I had the pleasure of knowing her for a long time as I am Jess's cousin on the Bollinger side. I didn't see her often, but when I did, she always had a beautiful smile on her face and gave me a huge hug and always asked how I was doing. May the memories of this great lady sustain you during this time of grief. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all! Extra hugs going out to Aunt Peg and Jess too. Sincerely, Jamie and Michelle (Bollinger) Cramer
