OBITUARY - DEANNA SUE "DEE" (TAYLOR) WARIN
Deanna Sue WARIN, daughter of Clifford and Lorabel TAYLOR, was born on Valentines Day 1943 in Ringgold county, Iowa on the
family farm near Diagonal.
She grew up near Diagonal, attending country school and graduating from Diagonal high school in 1961. She was a very good
athlete, excelling in both basketball and softball.
On September 26, 1963, she married Michael G. WARIN of Mount Ayr. The newlyweds established their home in Maloy, Iowa. To
this union three sons were born: Michael Robert, Joseph Matthew, and James Francis.
Dee was a homemaker and a partner on the family farm. She enjoyed the farm and worked side-by-side with her family hauling
grain, doing spring field work and anything dealing with the livestock. She especially enjoyed managing the poultry barns.
Dee truly loved the farm and sharing that experience with others.
Dee's other interests included playing golf, refinishing antiques, reading and being with her family and her many, many
friends. Spreading her contagious laughter to others was something that came easy for Dee.
Dee died on Saturday, August 25, 2001.
She was preceded in death by her infant son James; father Clifford TAYLOR; parents-in-law, Emmet and Pearl WARIN; and
brother-in-law William WARIN.
