Life Story / Obituary


Deanna Jane Paauwe (née Tuttle) went to be with her Lord and Savior on February 15, 2022. Deanna was born in Grand Rapids, Michigan on October 20, 1940 to Jettie Mildred and Rex Wesley Tuttle. She was one of nine children born into the Tuttle family.

Deanna attended Grandville High School. After high school, she married and became the mother of five children. Deanna spent her days taking care of her family. She was preceded in death by her parents, her sons Jerry, Jim, Rick and Randy; grandson Nicholas; brothers Bill, and Joe; sisters Helen Hanlon Eddy and Nancy Barrett, and very special brother in law Ralph Hanlon.

She is survived by her daughter, Denise (George) Brown, her grandchildren and great grand children, her brothers David Tuttle and Don (Mary) Tuttle and sister Lois (Bill) Hatch as well as many nieces and nephews.

A private memorial service will be held for family at a later date. The family would like to express its gratitude to Medilodge of Wyoming and Faith Hospice for their compassionate care. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Deanna’s memory to Faith Hospice.
