Let the memory of Deana 'Dee' be with us forever

This memorial website was created in memory of our loved one, Deana 'Dee' Poitevint-Black, 55, born on February 15, 1958 and passed away on March 29, 2013. We will remember her forever.

Deana (Poitevint) “Dee” Black, age 55, of Killeen, Texas, passed from this life on Friday, March 29, 2013, at Hospice House in Odessa, Texas. She was born in Ft. Stockton, TX on February 15, 1958 to the late William Harrison Poitevint and Cora Elizabeth (McMahan) Poitevint. She was a homemaker. In addition to her parents, she is preceded in death by her husband: Charles Roscoe Black, who passed away in 1993. She is survived by her two daughters: Ranee Dawn Smith of Odessa, and Lisa Marie Bejarano and husband Leopoldo Jr. of Fort Hood; two sisters: Barbara Hiatt and husband Don of Odessa and Beverly Jean Partee of Anchorage, Alaska; three brothers: Eddie Ben Poitevint and Richard Wayne Poitevint, both of Odessa, and Jerry Hogan of Dallas; five grandchildren: Macey and Joseph Sarabia, Khristian and Kourtney Johnson, and Jacob Bejarano; and two great-grandchilden: Zaiden Aaron Day and Avi DeeAnn Day. Dee was an outgoing person who enjoyed line dancing and karaoke. Never one to mince words, she boldly spoke her mind. In the process of moving to Odessa, Dee made many friends from the VFW and that was when the Lord intervened and placed Michael Davis in her life. She was an avid reader and a big sports fan, who was often found cheering on the Boston Red Sox, San Antonio Spurs, and Texas Longhorns, or rooting for Dale Earnhardt Jr. or Sr. on the NASCAR circuit. She loved PURPLE!

Memorial Tributes

As I approach my third Mother’s Day here without you I cannot help but wonder why bad things happen to good people? Why did you have to die? Why are you not here? Why do I have to go through this day and every other Mother’s Day without you, for the rest of my life? Well the truth is I don’t, and the truth is I won’t. Because although I can no longer physically see you, or hold your hand, or hear your laugh, I can feel you around me every single day. You guide me and lead me to the places I have gone and the places I have yet to go. And although you left this world long before you should have, I know and feel it in my heart that you still continue to love me, to teach me, and to send me your strength. So on this Mother’s Day, Mom, I will not cry because I miss you beyond words. I will smile because I had the best almost 36 years of my life with you. I will smile because I knew you, and I will smile because I love you with all my heart and soul and the bond we have could never, ever be broken.
Happy Mother’s Day in heaven, Mom. I miss you. I love you. Always."
