Deanna Faye Brown Jacobson
Deanna, known by family and friends as Dee, began her life on earth on Dec., 14, 1951 in Ely, Nevada. She was the first born child of Darlene and Howard Brown. She grew up in McGill, Nevada with her sister and two brothers. On July 19, 1972 she gave birth to her only child, Stacey Darlene Johnson.
Dee moved to Idaho in 1976 where she resided the remainder of her life. She loved to travel and had opportunities to visit England, Scotland, Germany, and across the United States. On October 21, 2006 she married Scott Jacobsen. In 2008, Dee proudly achieved her CNA certificate and provided heartfelt care to many patients with compassion and kindness. She felt this was her greatest personal achievement.
Dee is survived by her husband, Scott Jacobsen; her daughter, Stacey Squires; her mother, Darlene Barnett; her sister, Evanna (Kerry) Flynn; two brothers, Ken (Sandy) Brown and Bill (Denise) Brown; three grandchildren, Josh, Trisha, and Lilee, and many nieces and nephews.
