Deidra Michayle Walker-Rowe died at her residence on February 15, 2020.
Deidra was born in Worland, Wyoming on September 28, 1986, the only child born to Mel Walker and Kendra (Foland) Brazelton. Even from a young age, Deidra was full of life and love and stood out with her blonde hair and spunky personality.
She was known as a hard worker, at 12 she began working with Darr Lea as a dishwasher at the Office Lounge. She would put 110% of herself in every task given. Deidra deeply loved her family, bonding with her stepmother, Darr Lea, over crafting, and loved to spend time with her browsing craft stores. She enjoyed hunting, camping, 4-wheeling and was active in 4-H. She was a great organizer, even though you wouldn't have guessed by her room growing up. She loved the color lavender.
She had a special connection with each of her siblings, Derrick Brazelton, Heidi, Holly, Heather, and Tyler.
Deidra moved to Casper after graduating from Worland High School in 2005. Here she met her husband Darren on a blind date. They said, "I do" on July 31, 2010. Darren and Deidra started their family of dachshunds, Dexter, Morgan, Maya, Dante, and Dawson. Deidra loved all animals, and she also made space in their home for an extra-large cat, Mongo.
When you look at the sky on a warm spring day, you notice the clouds part, the bright blue sky and the sun shining down. The warmth of the sun kisses your face and lights up your soul. This is the feeling that Deidra Rowe gave to each and every person that she had the pleasure of coming in contact with. She had the most beautiful smile, a contagious laugh, and an uplifting personality. Her smile preceded her into any room she entered and cast a ray of light so bright, you couldn't help but feel lifted. She was a joy to be around.
Deidra loved with her whole heart and was always doing everything she could for those she loved. Friends and family knew her to always know when someone needed flowers, a special coffee or a small gift subtly left for them. Her kind heart and gentle spirit in combination with her drive and ambition allowed her to excel. She worked for Natrona County School District, Walmart and then the City of Casper in the Municipal Court. Deidra loved her work family and was always the first to jump at an opportunity to celebrate the successes of those around her. She supported and advocated, and spent endless hours making sure that each person had what they needed to be the best they could possibly be at whatever they put their mind to.
She also loved attending Bingo, where she regularly spent her New Year's Eve, she loved crafting, scrapbooking and finding cute and creative ways to provide practical organization to a space, true crime, reading, socializing on Facebook, sleeping and loving on her dachshunds.
She was preceded in death by her grandfather, Perry Walker and little-granny Biles and her baby-pup, Dante. Deidra did not leave this world alone, she was greeted by Heavenly Father with open arms with Dexter, Morgan, Dawson, Maya and Mongo.
