She leaves to mourn her sons Steve (Yvette) Mark of Townville, SC, Jeffrey (Samantha) Jones of Anderson, SC and David (Latosha) Johnson of El Paso, TX, her daughters Shelby Jones, Jacqueline Todd and Joyce Mark all of Townville, SC and Rhonda (Timothy) Jones of Anderson, SC.

The medical staff at AnMed 5 South was phenomenal in their care for Dean. She worked at a textile mill until the late 1970s and spent her remaining years as a homemaker and caring for others. She was loved by many. She helped raise many of her grandchildren, some of her great grands and was a surrogate mother/grandmother to so many more. Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners will not be the same without her.
Dean was a member of Snow Hill Baptist Church and a member of the Snow Hill Missionary Society.
