Deana Rae Black, age 73, went to be with her Lord and Savior on Saturday May 09, 2020 surrounded by family at her home in Allen.
She was born in Holdenville, Oklahoma on March 27, 1947. She was the daughter of the late Virgil and Myrtle (Stone) Hayes. She was the third of four sisters born to the Hayes family. Deana attended Atwood Public Schools from first grade through graduation in 1965. She married Ronnie Don Black on March 1, 1971. They shared 43 wonderful years of marriage together, until his passing in 2014.
She was a devoted wife, mother, and sister. She was very proud of her family and being a “Granny” was one of her greatest joys. Deana enjoyed spending time outdoors tending to her garden and flowers. She attended Richmond Avenue Free Will Baptist Church.
She is survived by son Ronald, his wife Charle, and daughter Rhyle of Allen; son Frayne, his wife Marcy, sons Rush, Tyler and Rylan, and daughter Abby, of Allen; two sisters, Gwendolyn Griffith of Atwood, and Martha Black of Allen; and a host of nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband Ronnie; and sister, Celeca Jo Hayes.
What an honor to have her as our mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be deposited to the Citra Cemetery fund at the Farmers State Bank in Allen.
Arrangements under the direction of Criswell Funeral Home.
