A celebration of life will be held in her honor from 1-4pm on Saturday, January 28th, 2023, at The Pub on the Cedar in Charles City, Iowa.

Deanna was born on May 25, 1963, in Charles City, Iowa to Arnold and Bernice (Torkelson) Voelker. She attended school in Charles City through the years until she later graduated from Charles City High School.

Here she continued her career with Hy-Vee as the HBC Manager for many years before returning to her passion for caring for others at Riverside Assisted Living.

Spending time in nature was something that brought her peace. After growing up on the family farm as a child Deanna always enjoyed the tranquility that came with the quiet of being outdoors.
