Deanna J Stambaugh
January 3, 1942 - February 20, 2021

Place of Birth: Orion, Michigan
Residence: Sidney, MT
Age: 79

Deanna was born in Orion, Michigan on January 3, 1942. She was raised by Bertha (King) and Wilfred Wills in Ubly, Michigan where she graduated from high school.
Deanna dated her future husband, Don, throughout high school. They were married on May 10th, 1960. They lived in a log cabin and worked their farm in Ubly. During that time they had four boys-Bruce, Orin, Bert, and Jeff. Deanna went to beauty school and became a hairstylist shortly after they were married. Through the years Deanna and Don moved to several different states, as he followed the oilfield. After settling in Sidney, Montana in the early 1980’s Deanna operated her hair salon out of the Lalonde Hotel. And when Deanna and Don returned to Michigan in 1992 she reopened her salon there. Their family grew by one member, as they took in and raised their godson Patrick McGee. In 2005 Deanna retired as a hairstylist and returned to Sidney, Montana to be with Don as he fought off cancer for a second time. Deanna, Don, and their family built their second log home at that time.
Throughout her life Deanna remained an active member of the Order Of The Eastern Stars, The Daughters Of The Nile, and was an Adult Advisor to The International Order Of Rainbow For Girls. She enjoyed traveling and camping with Don, especially family reunions and their trip to Alaska. She loved spending time with her boys, grandchildren, and family.
Deanna dabbled in painting for many years. That artwork still hangs in her home and the homes of her family and friends. Some people may have seen her paintings displayed at Arts In The Park or as entries at the Richland County Fair. She participated in National Horseshoe tournaments, enjoyed horseback riding, was a member of the bowling league, and volunteered at Caring Corner Gift Shop in the Sidney Health Center.
Deanna passed away on February 20, 2021 in Billings, Montana.
Deanna was preceded in death by; her husband Donald Stambaugh, her parents Wilfred and Bertha (King) Wills, and her godson Patrick McGee.
Deanna is survived by; her sons Bruce, Orin (Tammy), Bert (Denise), and Jeff (Marcia) Stambaugh, her eight grandchildren, her brother Bud (Shirley) Hosner, her sister Ellie (Rusty) Schalin, her brother-in-law Gary (Sharon), and her brother-in-law Gene (Judy).
Deanna will be laid to rest next to her husband Don, in Sidney Cemetery-Sidney Montana. The family will have a Memorial Celebration of Life at a later date.

Deanna was my first hair stylist here in the early 1980s. What a gracious lady she was. I so enjoyed running into her at Arts in the Parks, the fair, and at the grocery store over the years. Her artwork was beautiful. My condolences to the family. It is never easy to lose a loved one. May God bring you great comfort.

To Deanna's Families, I send my sincere condolences as you mourn for your Mother. She was a great care giver for your Dad, loving Wife, Mom, and Grandmom. I knew her through Don's work at Border Steel where she was respected and admired for her loving ways. May our Lord give you the peace of mind that passes human understanding as you all cope with losing both parents in so few months so that you know His mercy and grace.
