APRIL 3, 2009

Deanna G. Hartwig, 66, passed away Friday, April 3, 2009, of cardiac arrest.  Deanna was the life of the party.  She enjoyed spending time with family and her many friends.  She loved traveling with “Crazy Campers,” boating with the “Boat People,” and bowling with friends.  All of her children’s friends called her mom.  She especially loved spending time with her husband, Gerald, her children and spoiling her grandchildren.

Deanna was born to William and Paula Holliday Nov. 23, 1942, at Winchester.  She lived the first years of her life there, moving to Lewiston while still in grade school.

She attended schools in Lewiston until her marriage to Gerald M. Hartwig, Nov. 26, 1960.  Completing school was important to Deanna and she received her general education development certificate in 1976.

Deanna worked at Tomlinson’s Dairy and Sears, both in Lewiston.  She retired from Sears after many years of service.

Deanna was preceded in death by her parents.  She is survived by her husband, Gerald; her sisters, Donna Holliday, and Darlene Knapp and husband Bob; her sons, Lee and wife Lisa, and Darrin and wife Sharon; and her eight grandchildren.

A memorial service is planned for 2 p.m. Thursday at Mountain View Funeral Home in Lewiston.  A celebration of life will follow at the Lewiston Eagles Lodge with a covered-dish dinner.  In lieu of flowers, memorials may be sent to the American Heart Association or to the American Diabetes Association.
