Deanie L. Crow

May 31, 1938 - Sept. 20, 2008

In loving memory of Deanie L. Crow, who passed away Sept. 20, 2008. She was only 70 years old. She passed away peacefully in her home, after a courageous battle with cancer, with her family by her side. Per her wishes she will be cremated and her ashes spread with her husband's, Lanny Crow, who passed away on May 14, 2005. There will be a family service for that at a later date. Deanie was born May 31, 1938, to Frank and Fern Merling in Ouray, Colo., who preceded her in death. Two brothers also preceded her in death, Jimmy Merling, and Danny Merling, both of Ouray, Colo.; along with grandparents, aunts and uncles. Deanie was a devoted mother, wife, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, aunt and friend. She leaves behind four children, Kurt Haldeman, of Craig, Colo., Kim Crow, of Albany, Ore., Darcie King, of Klamath Falls, Ore., and Lainie Baines, of Medford, Ore.; nine grandchildren; and four great-grandchildren, whom all called her "Mamo." Also surviving are two sisters, Joan Points (Loyd), of Montrose, Colo., and Vicky Points (Jim), of Battlement Mesa, Colo.; nieces; nephews; great-nieces; nephews; along with many wonderful friends. She has left a big void in our family. She will be dearly missed by each and everyone one of us.

"Memories of her will be in our hearts forever."
