Elizabeth Hogans Deas
Elizabeth Hogans Deas, age 87, of Jennings, FL. passed away at her home on Monday, June 17, 2019 surrounded by family.
Elizabeth was born in White Springs, FL. on March 19, 1932 to the late Willie Eugene and Maggie Taylor Hogans. She married the love of her life Quinteen Deas in August of 1950 and lived out the rest of her days on the farm where she was a help-mate to her husband and could be found most every summer in the kitchen cooking meals for the crew members working in the tobacco fields. She was known for her wedding and shower cakes in the community with a production volume too numerous to keep up with. Elizabeth loved her neighbors and had such a giving spirit. She was a wonderful mother, grandmother and "Marm". Elizabeth was preceded in death by her husband Quinteen "Sport" Deas, her brother, Earl Hogans and her great grandson, Landon Ball. Survivors include two sons and daughters-in-law, Damon and Becky Deas and Roger and Anne Deas; two daughters and sons-in-law, Brenda and Dean Franklin and Rachel and Joel Selph, Jr.; 13 grandchildren and 25 great grandchildren. Also surviving is her longtime caregiver, Cindy Lehman. Funeral services were held on Wednesday, June 19, 2019 at Bethel Primitive Baptist Church in Jennings, FL. with Elder Don Gilbert officiating. Interment followed at Sassers Landing Cemetery.
