Deanna Lynn Barton was born September 26, 1969 in Kansas City, Kansas to Dean and Josephine Blossom Hammer. She attended the Miami R-1 School in Amoret and graduated in 1988. She then attended Brown-Mackie College and graduated in 1990 with a degree in Business. On May 22, 1993 Deanna was united in marriage to Gary Barton. To this union a daughter was born, Lynnlee Hammer. Over the years Deanna worked mainly as a homemaker and family caretaker, but she also substitute taught in the Miami School District.

Deanna loved the beach, it didn’t matter which one or where it was at. This was evident in her love for lighthouses as well. When she wasn’t enjoying the beach, Deanna loved music, dancing, and attending rodeos to show her support for family and friends. Deanna was the most supportive, caring, loving and devoted person. She believed in two things, her family and her God. She was a devoted member of the Drexel Nazarene Church and served on the church board until it’s closing. She will be greatly missed by her family, her many friends, and her community.

Deanna was preceded in death by her mother Josephine Hammer and her brother Ronald Hammer. She is survived by her husband Gary Barton, daughter Lynnlee Hammer, father Dean Hammer (Pat Hazelbaker), brother Ronnie Hammer (Mickie), step-siblings Brenda Ratty (Randy) and Cathy Kump. She also leaves behind nieces, nephews, extended family members, adopted family members, and many friends.
