We were so sorry to hear about Deena's passing from this life into her new life. She was an inspiration to me and to many at St. Matthew's parish where she actively served others and her church. She will be greatly missed by all who knew her but she is now rejoicing and enjoying her reward!

I am so sorry to hear of Deena's passing. I worked with Deena for many years at Kronos and we shared many work trips together with a management team. We had many fun times together. When I was very new to the company, I flew to Indianapolis to be trained by Deena. I recall how generous she was with her knowledge and time and in showing me the town. Deena was a thoughtful and kind lady and I am sure she will be missed by many. My deepest condolences to the family.

My favorite memory of Deena was when Gus would get out and somehow she would take this giant dog by the collar and gently lead him back home. He put fear in anyone else but not Deena. He was putty to her gentle soul. This happened more than it should’ve and Deena and I would laugh at what a baby he was for her but no one else. Though we will miss her, I am sure Gus is happy to see his old friend. Take care of him for us Deena, until we meet again!
