Deanna Beverley Trickett – December 16, 1941 – January 20, 2021 It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our sweet mother, Deanna Beverley Trickett (nee; Jones) on January 20, 2021, at Vernon Jubilee Hospital. Deanna was born in New Westminster, BC, on December 16, 1941, to Jack and Tona Jones. She had one sister, Loretta, whom she was very close to. She was stricken with Rheumatic Fever as a child, which caused her serious heart complications, resulting in her requiring three heart surgeries during her life. At 18 years old, she married David Trickett. They had two daughters, Dana Leigh and Dawn Marie. They moved to Australia in 1972 where they all resided for a year before coming back to Canada and making Lumby, BC, their home. Deanna was predeceased by her loving husband, David, in 1992, and six years later, found love again with her life partner, Joe Engler. She was a grandmother to her one grandson, Ryan, whom she loved dearly. Deanna was a mother, a grandmother, a wife, a friend, and an aunt who touched the lives of many. Everyone she met, she graced with kindness and love. Our Mother, Deanna Trickett, will be forever missed and loved and remain in our hearts always. “Mom, Could you come back and stay awhile. We want to hear your voice and see you smile. We want to hold you tight And never let you go And tell you how much We love you so… “

Because of life's time lines, it is most unfortunate that I didn't have the good fortune to have met Deanna. I do however feel a strong desire to express my sorrow knowing that you, Dawn and Dana have lost your dear mom, Ryan has lost his precious grandma and Joe, you have lost your partner. The memory of her love, her smile and always wanting the best for all of you. will eventually help you through your loss.

I am so sorry to hear of Deanna's passing. I have been thinking about her and just came across her obituary. She was a very dear friend in our younger years and I have many good memories. We had been keeping touch by letters until a few years ago and when the letters stopped, I didn't know how to get in touch. I agree with others that she was a wonderful, kind person and she will surely be missed.
Deepest sympathies to all family and friends.
