LaDeana worked for 28 years as the office manager at Bowling Green Pediatric Dental Group. She loved people and made genuine connections with all those she encountered throughout her life. She was selfless, always giving and helping others and her infectious smile will be fondly remembered by many.
Her life revolved around her family and her greatest joy in life came from the time she spent with them. When her children were growing up, she loved having her children’s friends over. She was involved in elementary school PTO and volunteered in the library. She found great joy watching Jessica and Nick play hockey. She adored her grandchildren and cherished the time she spent with them in her pool, attending their music recitals, dance recitals and baseball games.
She loved gardening and cooking for her family. Her family and friends always looked forward to enjoying her brownies and “party mix”. Following retirement, she enjoyed spending time with her husband at their retirement home in Strasburg, Ohio where she would shop in Amish Country and spend time at the New Philadelphia Elks Lodge.
