In Memory

Deanna Fetter (Muffler-Lack)

In Loving Memory 

South Jordan, UT—Billie Deanna Muffler-Lack, aged 69, passed away peacefully in her South Jordan home on the evening of Monday, January 11th. She was in the presence of her loving family, but in the thoughts and prayers of many more loved ones who were unable to be there physically. She bravely battled lung cancer for over three years, showing her strength and grace through difficult times. 

"Deanna", as her friends and family called her, was born in Ironton, Ohio on September 4th, 1951 to Betty Jo Hatfield and George Fetter. She moved many times during her youth before eventually settling in the suburbs of Salt Lake City, Utah with her own family. She worked several careers throughout her life, but was most proud of the years she spent working for Delta Airlines and the opportunities for friendship and adventure it afforded her and her family. 

Deanna was a light to all those who witnessed her generosity and warmth. Those who knew her best would tell you that she never missed an opportunity to share laughter with friends or to make those around her feel appreciated with a surprise gift. She was always thoughtful and selfless, and she will be missed by a great many. 

Deanna is survived by her loving husband Samuel Lack, her daughter and son-in-law Becky and Marc Compton, her son and daughter-in-law Jason and Grace Muffler; her sisters Carla Day and Shelley Peace, her brother Tim Fetter; her two grandchildren Harper and Carter Compton; and her beloved lap-dog "Pepper", as well as her many nieces, nephews, and cousins.

I don't remember Deanna in high School, however hearing about the death of a classmate saddens me. Rest In Peace Deanna.

Deanna and I were best friends in high school and lost touch throughout the years.  We had just reconnected a couple of years ago.  I was able to visit with her on one of her trips to St Louis awhile back. She called me one night and told me about her cancer.  We were going to make plans to get together again, but our plans never happened.  She will definitely be missed.  My thoughts and prayers go out to her family and friends.

Deanna and I were in Girl Scouts together and were friends during those middle school years of having dance parties in our basement and spending hours talking about boys... She was a loyal and sweet friend.  I can tell she was a great mom and grandmother.  And she now has her wings.  Peace and blessings to her family who  will miss her so much!

Dee and I were good friends in high school.  We had many bunking parties.  She could make me laugh so hard and could dance the night away.  I could barely keep up with her.  We kept in touch over the years and visited off and on until she moved to Utah.  We still kept in touch but not as often.  No matter the amount of time that passed, it was always a warm and loving welcome as if we hadn't been apart.  I'm so happy she has two beautiful children to love her and that she found a love again.  Dee you will always bring a smile to my heart and you will always be missed.

Deanna was my best friend for 56 years.  She was in our wedding, which by the way we just celebrated our 50th Anniversary.  She was a courageous warrior against her cancer for 3 1/2 years.  She raised her kids, Becky and Jason for most of their childhood as a single mother after her divorce.  She put herself through college during that time.  She loved to travel and to shop!  She married Sam Lack in Oct 2010 and he was a wonderful husband to her.  He took care of her at home these last 9 months.  I have made several trips out to Utah to see her and when she came home to St. Louis, we always met for lunch and to shop !   She was a strong Christian and so her soul is in Perfect Heaven.  I will miss her dearly. I loved her like a sister.

Dee was a kind, gentle girl in high school and became a woman with great understanding and wisdom.  She was someone you could confide in and trust. I feel blessed that she was my friend. She will be missed by many.
