Deanna Mae Petrie

December 5, 1939December 20, 2020

Deanna Mae Petrie of Charlotte passed away peacefully at home on December 20th at the age of 81. Deanna was a beloved wife, mother, grandmother, and friend.

An only child, Deanna was born in Watertown, NY on December 5, 1939 to the late William and Harriet Johnson. Deanna was a graduate of Clayton Central High School and SUNY Cortland where she earned her B.S. in Education. She formerly lived in Wappingers Falls, NY before moving to NC in 2001.

Deanna was active in a number of community organizations including West End Presbyterian Church, Clara McLean House of Pinehurst, and The Women's Auxiliary of Seven Lakes.

Anyone who knew Deanna will tell you that she was a strong woman with a sharp wit and a great sense of humor. Deanna loved bird watching, gardening, and spending time in the kitchen cooking and baking. She was an avid animal lover, often rescuing and feeding those in need. She loved playing games with her friends and family and watching sports, particularly football.

Deanna is survived by her husband, David Petrie; her three children: Susan D'Errico and husband, John of Concord; Laura Petrie of Matthews, Julie McGarry and husband, Neil, of Raleigh. Her four grandchildren also survive her: Anthony (28); Jordyn (25); Riley (15); and Camryn (13).

Dear Dave, and family, Please accept our sincere sympathy on the loss of Deanna. We were in the same Red Hat group at Seven Lakes West, as well as "email friends." We'll certainly remember her sharp wit, and the many interesting emails that she sent to us several years back. A lovely, friendly, lady, always with a smile, and ready with a quip to share with whomever. May God be with you all during this most difficult time. Annette & Al Daniels

I sat in the pew in front of Deanna and Dave at West End Presbyterian Church. She was always so energetic and made me laugh many times.

I was very sad when I read about her passing and my prayers go out to Dave and his family.

Peace and comfort,

Dottie
